How our site works

It's vital that you have buildings and contents insurance cover so that, in the event of a storm, flood or other incident or accident, you won't be left out of pocket.

We want to show you as many insurers as possible, so that you can choose what suits you best. But, we can’t promise to show you every single insurer, because some insurers don’t want to be included on comparison websites.

We think a good landlord insurance policy should include buildings cover, and cover your property for accidental damage. We also think you should be covered for loss of rent. We prioritise the companies that include these things in their standard policy, so they appear higher in our list. The insurers who only offer some of these things in their standard policy appear lower down in the list.
