How does our contents insurance work?
If you’re reading this article, you’ve probably been looking at our contents insurance. Great! Ever since we found out that 81% of ‘Generation Rent’ doesn’t have contents insurance*, and 13% don’t even know what it is**, we’ve been on a mission to make a change. We had a think about why understanding is so low, and we designed a policy to make it easier to understand, buy, and manage.
How it works
In short, our policy:
- Is pay as you go
- Starts from £5 a month
- Has accidental damage included as standard
- Has tenants liability included as standard
- Is easy to customise – select the add-ons you need
- Takes less than 5 minutes to buy
It’s simple – you just need to give us some details about yourself (i.e. your name, your address, who you’re living with), decide how much cover you want, and then you can buy!
How is this different from other insurance policies?
The chances are that this policy isn’t like any you’ve seen or bought before, so we completely get it if you want to ask us any questions. You can contact us by clicking the ‘chat’ button on our homepage, or you can send us a message here.
If you don’t think that contents insurance is for you, then we offer standalone tenants liability from £40 a year (although, when you could be getting contents from £60 a year, it’s hardly worth getting the standalone), and we also offer gadget insurance for £75 for £1,000 cover on your gadgets.
