Alternative Accommodation

We have the alternative accommodation for you should you experience a disaster in your home.

Rainbow International are pleased to offer a cost effective alternative accommodation solution where hotels/ long term lets are not suitable.

Alternative Accommodation Pods

The Rainbow Kitchen or Bathroom pods alleviate the need to leave your home following a disaster, if only part of the property is damaged.

There are only three practical requirements to be considered for Kitchen or Bathroom pods to be used as alternative accommodation on any claim:-

  • Space and access for the pod to be delivered
  • Working electrical supply
  • External water source

Each pod has been specifically designed to fit into a standard car parking space or driveway and can be delivered to anywhere in the UK mainland within 3 working days. This timescale also applies to the collection of the pods.

The pod design focuses on safety and simplicity of use for the policyholder and their family. The electrical supply is via 13 amp plugs which can be connected to most standard plug sockets and the water system is pumped via an outside tap ensuring swift and simple installation process; which is all completed by the delivery team on arrival. There is no need for gas canisters to be changed (which also require regular visits to replace, incurring additional costs).

NB: Should there be any occasion where no outside tap is available the delivery and installation team can connect one for the policyholder.

All pods are provided with a complete Welcome Pack which includes user guides for all contents also with a trouble shooter and contact information.
