Nationwide home insurance

With Nationwide home insurance, you can buy your buildings or contents cover separately or as a combined policy.

Your insurance cover will pay out for claims relating to fire, flood or storm damage, theft and loss.

It’ll also cover the costs of any claims you’re held responsible for (third party claims) - like if your roof tiles fall off on to a neighbour’s car.

Home insurance isn’t a legal requirement but it’s worth considering to protect yourself from high repair or replacement costs.

History of Nationwide

Nationwide originated from a few co-operative building societies from around the UK, dating back to 1846.

After many mergers and acquisitions, it changed its name in 1970 to Nationwide Building Society. It's now the largest mutual financial institution in the world.  

Optional extras

If you want a bit more protection in addition to your Nationwide buildings and/or contents insurance, you can add on the following options:

Accidental damage cover

Accidental damage will cover repairs to the structure, fixtures and fittings and contents of your home in the event of unintentional damage, like drilling through a pipe or spilling wine on the sofa.
