Christmas and weddings

The last thing you want to think about at Christmas and at a wedding time is insurance. That's why Aviva automatically increase your contents cover for free over Christmas, or when there's a wedding in your immediate family. Your cover increases by 10% for the month of December, as well as for 30 days before and after the wedding.

Legal expenses

The area of legal matters can be confusing and off-putting. As part of Aviva's home insurance, Aviva's ‘legal expenses’ cover gives you a number of useful services to help you with any legal questions you may have.

With this cover you have access to a legal advice helpline, which you can use to get advice on any personal legal matter, no matter how big or small. The helpline advice is absolutely confidential between you and your legal advisor.
