Barclays Home Insurance

Insurance shaped around you

With Barclays Home Insurance, you only pay to cover what you want – and you can add more cover if your needs change.

You’re not just covered, you’re Barclaycovered

  • Independent covers – a claim on one won’t affect any of the others at renewal
  • No charges to add or remove covers, pay monthly or cancel your policy mid-term
  • Switcher promise – if you switch to us before renewal and your current insurer charges a fee, we’ll refund it in full

Choose your cover

We’ve taken a different approach to home insurance. Instead of offering a one-size-fits-all policy, you can create your own. So you just pick the cover you need, rather than pay for cover you don’t.


Contents cover

Insure your possesions for an unlimited sum against loss, theft or damage while they’re in your home – we’ll cover your valuables individually, too.


Starter contents cover

If you’ve just moved into your first home, or you don’t have that much to insure, our starter contents cover could be just what you need.


Student contents cover

Our flexible student contents cover protects your stuff against loss, theft or damage in your term-time home, and covers the cost of replacement locks and keys.


Personal items

Cover at and away from home for your possessions such as watches, jewellery, books and cash, against loss, theft or damage, anywhere in the world.



Specialist cover just for your electronic devices eg smartphones, laptops, tablets, against loss, theft or damage that happens away from home. Available with one of our contents covers.



Insure your bicycle with us and we’ll cover any others in your household up to the same value, wherever in the world you take them.

Home insurance overview

Why should you insure?
Insurance. It’s something we all need to consider – whether you want to protect your home, mobile phones, jewellery, handbag collection, or even your bike.
Not only is insurance there to give you peace of mind, but it’ll save you hassle and expense if you need to replace lost or damaged items.

Fee-free flexibility
We believe it’s important that you’re in control of your policy at all times. So we won’t charge you an admin fee if you need to amend your cover because your circumstances change. There’s also no charge if you decide to pay monthly or even cancel your policy.

A claims process you can count on
If the worst should happen, you’ll have a named UK claims manager on the end of the phone, who'll be with you every step of the way. And with an award in claims satisfaction1, you can rest assured we’re on hand to ensure things get back to normal as soon as possible – whether you’d like to settle your claim with Amazon vouchers, money in your account, repair or replacement – the choice is yours.

  • Certain types of loss or damage, such as theft or malicious damage caused by you or people who live with you
