Renters Insurance or Contents Insurance: which is right for you?

A few key things you need to know to help you choose what’s right for you:

  • when you rent a flat or a house, your landlord will usually get buildings cover to protect the property. This leaves you to insure the things in the property which you own
  • both Renters Insurance and Contents Insurance cover your things but with some key differences
  • our Renters Insurance offers no fixed term monthly contracts, simple lower value cover and online access to manage your policy to suit your lifestyle
  • our Contents Insurance provides a higher level of cover on a yearly policy that you can manage over the phone.
