Customers who share their homes such as through Airbnb want to buy insurance quickly and easily and when they need it. This insurance proposition is part of our strategy to continue to transform insurance with data and technology led solutions that enhance customers’ experience.”
Tim Attia, CEO of Slice Labs said, “We’re honoured to be working with one of the UK’s largest insurance groups, as they leverage our ICS platform. The UK homeshare market is in desperate need of on-demand insurance so we’re proud to work with L&G to bring it to fruition.
