Home insurance

Your home isn't just about the bricks, the glass and the tiles - it's also about the antique chairs, the brooch that’s been passed down over the generations and the wind chime in your garden that your daughter made at school. If something happens to those things, it's not just your wallet that suffers - it's your whole world.

We offer you a wide range of buildings and contents insurance, all aimed to swiftly put your world in order again.

We make it easy to buy home insurance online

Household insurance comes in different shapes and sizes. We can cover your buildings, your contents or both. Our approach is to offer a simple policy, with extras like accidental damage or garden cover if you need them.
