If you’re looking to insure your belongings – like valuables, televisions or personal money - our Contents cover will give you the confidence that your possessions are covered. We’ll cover for loss of, or damage to, the contents in your home for causes like fire, smoke or heating fuel leaks.  

Key features

  • Up to £50,000 for loss or damage to your belongings

  • Cover for your contents while temporarily removed from the home

  • New for old – we replace things on a like-for-like basis or replace it with the nearest equivalent available on the market (the amount we pay may be reduced to reflect wear-and-tear for clothes or linen)
