Trusttech interviews Insurtech – Innovator meets innovator in the sharing economy

Deemly, the Copenhagen-based trusttech innovator interviews Guardhog, the London-based insurtech innovator.

Top Hog at Guardhog Humphrey Bowles, shares with Deemly the need for an insurance solution specifically designed for the sharing economy. And he talks about the pain points that Guardhog’s flagship insurtech product Hostcover solves for peer-to-peer home-sharing platforms, and the users of these platforms.

The Deemly-Guardhog interview was also cited in an article by Virgin Media Business, who asked the question – In the big tech shake-up, is it the death of the insurance salesman? https://www.virginmediabusiness.co.uk/insights/hold-tight-for-the-big-tech-shake-up/

Soundbites from the Deemly-Guardhog interview:

microphone

“Insurance is an enabler for the sharing economy – because it allows people to ‘share’ safely. At best those thinking about getting involved may be put off by the horror stories, and at worst, dismiss the sharing economy as just too risky for them. Insurance can provide that reassurance – that if something, however unlikely, does go wrong, your assets are protected”

microphone

“The current home-sharing insurance environment is confusing. Most people assume that they are automatically covered by their existing home insurance policies. And many believe that Airbnb’s Guarantee is insurance, when, unfortunately, it’s not (if you read the small print, Airbnb recommends users of their platform have their own insurance in place)”

microphone

“Traditional insurers generally don’t understand the sharing economy. Before Guardhog, those renting out a room or their homes, would need to move their whole home insurance to a more expensive landlord’s policy, and one that still didn’t properly cover them”

microphone

“Most hosts do not have guests to stay every day of the year, so why pay for an annual policy when you only dip in and out of sharing activities? The sharing economy requires a model that allows users to cover themselves only when they need to, without subscribing to expensive year-round policies…”

“… And that’s what Guardhog has created; ‘on-demand’ insurance that you buy ONLY when you’re sharing. Guardhog’s flagship product Host Cover, specifically designed for the home-sharing market, is fully comprehensive, by-the-day home insurance”

microphone

“Many sharing economy platforms see providing insurance to their members as a benefit – encouraging participation and engendering trust”
