Flood re logo

Flood Re is a private reinsurance company developed at the request of the Government to address the increasing problems people at flood risk face in getting reasonable cover. Insurance companies will be able to insure homeowners without taking in to account their flood risk - thus providing normal premiums and an end to the 'uninsurable' - and then pass on the flood risk element of the claim to FloodRe.

FloodRe launched on the 4th April 2016 and is available now
