The cover will provide a host of insurance benefits to its buyers at a reasonable premium of Rs 99 per month.

With the launch of this unique offering, ‘Rent Protect Cover’, which is a first-of-its-kind offering in the Indian proptech space, Housing.com customers can avail of insurance with a click of a button at the time of completing online rental payments. The insurance will cover 15 critical illnesses up to Rs 2 lakh, a personal accident plan of Rs 1 lakh, and medical expenses of up to Rs 60,000 in case of accidental hospitalization. The tenure of the insurance policy will be annual, though the premium can be paid monthly.

A big part of ‘why insurance’, is to seamlessly deliver solutions that bridge that trust gap, in this case between our property owner and tenant communities,” said  Dhruv Agarwala, Group CEO, Housing.com, Proptiger.com and Makaan.com

“This partnership symbolises a 360-degree view of the role embedded finance can play and how insurance can be the differentiating experience for a company and its customers. Combined use-cases of payments + credit + insurance are converging to where we see fintech + insurtech as complementary spaces converging faster than ever before. ” said Suvendu Prusty, Co-founder & Director, of Riskcovry.
