  • Does my home insurance cover my bicycle?

    Some home policies will cover your bike as standard under your contents insurance, but this will generally be up to a certain amount. Most home policies will require additional cover for insuring your bike away from home. If you are looking for a specific type of cover, it may be worth looking at a specialist insurance policy

How can we help you with home insurance today?

We compare the policies and prices of 83 insurance brands in one quick and easy search to help you find the right product at the right price.

Whether you're looking for buildings insurance, contents insurance, or a combined buildings and contents policy, our service makes it easy to find the product that you want for your home.

You'll also see the latest information from independent financial research and software company Defaqto to ensure you know exactly what you're getting from your purchase.

Our simple-to-use forms will ask for your basic personal details, plus information on the house to be insured, the people living there, the ownership status, claims history, whether any occupants smoke, and if the property is left unoccupied.

Be ready for questions on the approximate age of the property, wall and roof construction, whether it's a listed building, its distance from water and if it's used for business.

Insurers will also need to know if the property's for sale or is undergoing building work, if it's in a good state of repair, whether there's central heating, if it's self-contained, whether there are extensions, garages or outbuildings, and if there's ever been evidence of subsidence, landslip, heave or tree damage.
