Nationwide were originally founded in 1846 as the Provident Union Building Society, offering credit and loans to the working class. This was at a time when financial services were purely for the wealthy and any kind of banking was near impossible for workers.
Nationwide have grown into the world's largest mutual financial institution and have extended their expertise to home insurance. You can choose between two cover types: Nationwide Essentials or Nationwide. Their Essentials product offers a lower level of cover for a reduced premium, while a more comprehensive level of cover is available through their standard product.
Contents cover is available up to £100,000 with Nationwide standard and buildings cover is unlimited, as well as benefiting from accidental damage as standard. With Nationwide Essentials, you will get up to £1m buildings cover and you can choose to add accidental damage to your policy as an optional extra. Cover for your locks and keys is included as standard across both products, so that you're covered if your keys are lost or stolen.
