Home and contents insurance is designed to protect your biggest asset and everything inside of it against natural disasters and other damage.
However, with the number of different products on the market, it’s virtually impossible for the average consumer to perform an effective home insurance comparison. And then there's the frustration involved when trying to decipher the terms and conditions.
Our report can help you find the best home and contents insurance for your situation. We’ve designed two easy-to-understand categories – standard and top level cover – and we provide product recommendations under those categories, along with advice you can use to better understand your insurance needs.
We also score each policy individually and provide a full features table so you can compare home and contents insurance products side by side for yourself too. Make an informed decision using the CHOICE home and contents insurance comparison and review.
