Reinstating your cover
Made a claim? Don't worry, we'll continue to insure you for the same amount that we did before your claim.
If you (and your pets!) become unable to live in your home following an unexpected insured event, we'll cover the cost of similar accommodation up to 15% of your buildings and contents sums insured.
Home insurance cover
We know you like options, so we give you a choice of buildings and contents cover (our most comprehensive cover) or contents only cover (perfect for renters). All options come with great benefits as standard, a range of discounts to keep your premium down and can be tailored to your needs. If you are employing a contractor to build a house for you, we can provide a 'Building in the course of construction' policy - please contact the Call Centre. Explore our cover types
