Gjensidige is extending the coverage in its insurances to also apply to Ukrainian refugees housed in private homes.

If you take in refugees in your private home, the contents insurance is extended to include the contents of the refugees, as well as liability insurance, Gjensidige stated on Wednesday.

If you take in refugees without being paid, the insurance company does not require that the insurance be extended with more housing units or rentals, which is normally required.

“We hope this can be a small contribution to increase the refugees’ sense of a safe everyday life and to be taken care of. We also hope it can increase the security of the families who open their homes,” the communications director at Gjensidige Øystein Thoresen said.

The same coverage applies to those who may choose to lend their holiday home to Ukrainians.

No decision has yet been made regarding buildings with more than four housing units/families. The schemes currently have a duration until 2022.
