Finding the right cover

It’s important to get the right cover when you buy home insurance. If you have valuable items in your home, look for specialist cover or risk not being able to claim the true value of the items.

Make sure your home is secure as possible – that your locks are up to the minimum standard required by your policy’s insurer. As any claims made could be invalid if you haven’t done this – as insurers won’t pay out if the policyholder has been negligent.

Why it pays to shop around?

Compare quotes from different providers before buying your policy to improve your chances of getting the best deal. And make sure to find a better policy before your policy ‘auto-renews’.

Make a note of when your policy expires, then search on MoneySuperMarket if you can make a saving with another company. Visit our home insurance channel to compare policies and find one that’s right for you.
