FloodFlash is a new type of rapid-payout flood insurance. It uses the latest data modelling and tech to bring parametric insurance to UK businesses for the first time. The result is fast, easy and flexible cover that pays claims within days of a flood.

FloodFlash is great for any commercial property client that:
-    can’t get flood cover elsewhere
-    has flood limits or exclusions on their policy
-    can only get quotes from one or two providers (a sign of loaded premiums)
-    has an excess on their policy
-    needs a fast payout to reduce BI

Quotes are available for any commercial property including landlords and housing associations. It doesn’t matter if the property has flooded before. Plus, FloodFlash can be used as an add-on to the primary policy, so you can use it to cover BI or other losses that don’t fall under the traditional cover without changing from a preferred insurer.

Get a quote in minutes via the FloodFlash portal <link to https://portal.floodflash.co.uk/> or email brokers@floodflash.co to find out how FloodFlash can help your at-risk clients.
