Insuring the things you love

If you turn your house upside down, everything that moves should be covered by home contents insurance. This is different to buildings insurance which just covers the structure of your home.

Get a contents insurance quote with Direct Line, and we’ll provide £50,000 contents cover for your home as standard, as part of our home insurance policy

What you’ll get

  • Cover on a new-for-old basis for household goods, including furniture, carpets, curtains, and your personal belongings in the home, garages and sheds
  • Cash covered in your home up to £500, plus items in the garden up to £1,000

  • Cover against fire, smoke damage, lightning, theft, flood and escape of water or oil up to £50,000

  • Cover for freezer contents, replacement locks and keys following theft of keys, and up to £5,000 for possessions temporarily removed from the home to another e.g. while children are at college
