What’s Away From Home cover?

This is optional cover for your things when away from your home for a short time, anywhere in the world. It covers items worth less than £2,000 against loss and theft - things like your phone, watch or bike. If you specify any high value items on your policy, you can also choose to cover these away from home.

Our policy documents tell you more about what is and isn't covered. Keep in mind that with all of our cover, there are limits, terms and exclusions. Read the policy documents (PDF 508KB).

Cover your items worth less than £2,000

Contents insurance only covers your things when they're in your home. But if you add Away from home cover, items worth less than £2,000 will be covered when you're out and about. This cover includes students' contents in student accommodation up to £5,000.

Cover your high value items.

We need to know about things you own if they’re worth £2,000 or more. When you specify these on your policy, they're covered in your home as part of your overall contents limit.

If you want to cover them away from home too, you can choose to do this for each item you list. That way if something gets lost or stolen when you're out and about, you can claim for it up to the amount you listed it for.
