What is home insurance?

Home insurance is there to make sure that when the unexpected happens at home, you won’t be faced with a huge bill to repair or replace your things. There are two main types of cover – buildings and contents, which you can buy combined or separately.

Step 2: Personalise your cover

Choose from a range of covers and enhancements, from accidental damage to gadget and bikes – your price will update as you go.

Step 3: Buy your policy

Your cover can start right away, or on your chosen start date. Then manage your policy online – we don’t charge any admin fees for making changes to your policy or your cover.

Your home insurance quote checklist

You only need to answer a few simple questions for your personalised home insurance quote. If you’re getting buildings cover, this includes

Whether our assumptions are correct
To speed things up, we base our quotes on some basic assumptions, like the number of bedrooms in your property and that it’s not a mobile home.

Your claim history
You must tell us about any home insurance claims you or anyone to be insured have made in the last five years.

How much excess you’re willing to pay if you make a claim
A higher excess could mean a lower premium – decide how much you’d be comfortable paying if you needed to make a claim. If you’re getting contents cover, as well as the above, you’ll need to tell us.

Whether you need more or less than £15,000 cover for your contents
The level of contents cover you get depends on how much you have to insure – choose between £2,000 to £15,000, or enjoy unlimited cover.
