Avoid burst pipes by text

I got this text in a few days ago from my insurance provider, Direct Line. Smart. Not only does it deliver some ‘seasonal greetings’, it also offers a top tip – don’t switch the heating off completely if you are away, to avoid burst pipes. Now, I wonder how much cash this will save them? […]
