    Hi

    Thanks for letting us know of Saxon, I hadn't heard of them myself, but if they beat your original quote by that much and they can offer you the same level of cover thats great news.

    I will bear them in mind for the future.....

    Thanks
    Peter

    I've tried E&L but i think the cheapest i've found is by another company who have specialist student insurance Saxon. It appears that if you live in halls of residence it's a lot cheaper than if you live in rented accommodation, I suppose the risks are higher but it's still pretty unfair in my opinion! Rant over. Endsleigh are part owned by NUS I believe so i would expect better of them. They quoted me £160! Saxon ranged from £50-£100.

    Try E&L Insurance www.eandl.co.uk

    They should be able to help, although I'm surprised Endsleigh weren't successful here, they usually fare very well in these circumstances

    I only really need about £600 worth of cover for my computer, but you have to have £2000s worth.

    Read the terms of Endsleigh closely. I haven't seen any recent policies but when I were a lad they were useless in that they didn't cover most of the items that were likely to be stolen and they had unusable limits on things like cds or stereos or computers.

    Shared House Contents Insurance

    Any ideas for decent priced insurance for a shared student house? It seems unfair that regular insurance companies charge about £120 for a whole house where as i have been quoted over £100 just for my posessions. Are there any other companies other than Endsleigh that provide individual contents insurance? Or a company that will cover a whole student house.
    Thanks.
