Home insurance

Contents insurance

Your home is more than just a roof and four walls – it also houses all your precious possessions and memories.

Every possession is valuable – whether we rely on them to keep our lives running smoothly or simply to make us more comfortable. We understand the importance of your personal possessions. That's why we offer home contents insurance that gives you peace of mind your possessions will be repaired or replaced if they're stolen or damaged.

Our comprehensive and competitive premiums give you a range of benefits. Plus, we also offer buildings insurance, which can be taken out as a combined policy or separately from your home contents insurance policy.
