Home insurance excesses


An excess is the amount that you have to pay towards the cost of a claim.


For example, if you have storm damage to your roof that will cost £1,000 to repair and your policy has an excess of £100, you’ll be asked to pay the excess of £100 but can claim for £900 (the cost minus the excess). The excesses that apply to your policy will vary, depending on the covers you have selected and the excess amounts you’ve chosen.

The excess you choose will apply to all covers you select unless stated otherwise below. It’s important you know that by choosing a high excess amount, you’ll restrict your ability to claim on some parts of your cover where typical claims tend to be of lower value. For example, accidental damage. Please make sure that the excess you've chosen meets your needs.

The tables below show the excesses you will pay for claims under the different levels of cover we offer. If you already have your cover with us, your Policy Schedule will show the excesses that apply specifically to you.

If you’ve got both Buildings and Contents insurance with us and you need to claim under both for a single event, you will only pay one excess (whichever is highest) for that claim. For example, if water from a burst pipe damages both your ceiling and soft furnishings.
