Why get Contents Insurance?

Some of your personal possessions may have a high cost in money terms – if the worst happens it might cost a lot to replace them.

You will be covered for £10,000 worth of high risk items as standard (you can select more cover if you wish). This covers belongings such as your jewellery, mobile phone, and computers within your home.

It's not always easy to work out the cash value of these items, so we’ve put together a handy checklist (PDF) to help you calculate the value of your contents and work out how much cover you’ll need.

  • Money & Credit Cards - Cover for your cards and cash when in the home
  • Liability as a tenant - Compensation payments under tenancy agreement for damage
