About Us

Inlet was founded by a small team of experienced Insurance professionals who recognised the need for a fresh approach to supporting users in the Sharing Economy.

The growing range of online services, such as Airbnb and Just Park provide a win-win situation. They not only enable people to share parking and accommodation for extra income. They also give users of these services more choice and better value for money, in an easy, accessible way – this is the sharing economy.

About Inlet

However, with the new opportunities that the sharing economy creates, fresh challenges have emerged for Insurers to ensure everyone is properly protected. A home is potentially your most expensive possession, which you entrust to a stranger. Even careful guests can have accidents and there may even be occasions when the guest abuses this trust.

It is clear to us the enormous value and potential for sharing activities, to help both users and communities, however there is a lot of work to be done to help users understand the protection they needs and where standard insurances might fall short. Equally, the Insurance industry needs help to understand this new Sharing Economy and where their customers need better Insurance solutions. As well as making products available to customers directly through Inlet, we work alongside Insurance companies and brokers to provide them with insurance solutions for their customers. By doing this we hope to make the Insurance Industry as a whole work better for the Sharing Economy.

Inlet is an associate member of SEUK (Sharing Economy UK www.sharingeconomyuk.com), who are the trade body for the Sharing Economy and aims to encourage and help users of the Sharing Economy stay safe and protected when operating their sharing venture. We also want to help drive better economics for users by providing cost effective tailored products on a pay on use basis.
