    You can also choose to cover any specified items in the home, or both in and away from the home.

    Any specified items will be included as part of your overall contents sum insured amount.

    For items worth more than £2,000 individually there is a £20,000 individual item limit and a £50,000 total specified item limit. 

Additional features and optional extras we offer:

The level of cover you need will be individual to you. You can see below what's included with our Bronze, Silver and Gold cover and what optional cover you can add to meet your needs.

  • Covers you against accidental damage to your home and the things in it. So if a football smashes your window or a drink is spilt on your carpet, we’ll pay to repair the damage or replace your things.

  • Protects the things you have with you when you leave the house, like your phone, watch or bike. If you've named any high value items, you can also choose to cover these away from home.
