Compare cheap bungalow insurance quotes and see if you can save
A bungalow is just a single-story house, so if you live in one you’ll need home insurance, just as you would for other types of home.
There are a few things you can try to save money on insuring your bungalow
Bungalows can be easier to break into - so fit burglar alarms and make sure you keep windows locked when you’re out
Fires could spread quickly through a single-storey home. As well as keeping you safe, this could help you get cheaper premiums
Bungalows are usually compact and easier to maintain, so keeping it in good order could make it less likely that you’ll need to make a claim
Always compare quotes to see if you can get a better policy with another provider
If you need to claim on your home insurance - for example, if your building is damaged by subsidence or your possessions are stolen - your free home excess cover will refund up to £250 of your excess.
There’s no hidden charge. But you won't be covered for things like accidental loss such as leaving a laptop on a train or accidental damage, such as spilling wine on your carpet or drilling through a pipe.

Not necessarily. Your premiums will be based on a number of factors. One of those is how much it would cost to rebuild your bungalow, which might be cheaper than a standard home, because it's only on one storey.
But on the other hand, your bungalow could be seen as more of a security risk because it'll be easier for thieves to access one floor than two. You might also be more at risk of flood damage as well as fire damage because all of your belongings will be on one level. All of these things could push the price of your bungalow insurance up.
You can limit flood risk and damage but returning to a bungalow after a flood might take longer. That’s because the whole house could be damaged, whereas the upper floors of a standard house might be spared.
Dormer bungalows with flat roofs can be trickier to insure too - you might need to find a specialist to cover you.
