What is Home and Contents Insurance?

Have you become more of a homebody in the last few years? Yeah, us too. Our homes seem more important to our physical and mental health these days. Home and Contents Insurance can help cover the cost of damages to your home and possessions after an insurable event.

What can be covered by Home and Contents insurance?

Storms, fire, earthquakes, lightning, malicious damage – all of these events are not things we want to be on the receiving end of. But if they happen, Home and Contents Insurance can help to cover the repair or rebuild of your property, as well as the cost of replacing certain possessions.

Helpful Tip:

Don’t overlook the importance of flood cover. Even if it comes at an extra cost, it can save you from costly repairs down the line. Weigh up the flood risks in your area and think hard on whether you need the extra protection.
