It’s important to get the right amount of cover for your belongings. Should your home be burgled or damaged by fire or flooding, you could have to fork out to cover the costs if you're not properly insured.
The average UK home is filled with thousands of pounds worth of possessions, so it's important that you get the right level of cover. Remember to take every room in your home into consideration.
When comparing home contents policies, you'll be given the option to cover your possessions away from home. This means you could be covered against loss and theft for the things you carry with you everyday, including jewellery, watches, handbags, laptops and mobile phones.
Accidental damage cover may also be worth considering. This covers you for one-off accidents such as spilling something on your sofa, smashing a television set or dropping an antique vase.
Need extra cover?
You may also be able to upgrade your contents insurance policy by adding home emergency and legal cover. But some insurers may include them as standard.
