Customers in their first policy year are unable to make a Claim within the first 18 days of the contract. This is known as the Claims Freeze Period.

Boiler repair and rescue

Our Boiler Repair service is £295, but you can pay just £95 if you take out an annual SSE Heating Cover plan at the same time (excludes SSE Heating Cover £50 excess and SSE Heating Breakdown Cover). You'll be covered for the whole year for boiler breakdowns and you'll save £200 - that's more than the cost of 6 monthly payments.

£200 saving based on the cost of SSE Boiler Repair (£295) compared with the cost of £95 when you take an annual SSE Heating Cover product at the same time (excludes SSE Heating Cover 50 and SSE Heating Breakdown Cover). The saving on Boiler Repair equates to more than 6 monthly payments.
