Overview of cover provided by Saga Home Insurance

Saga offers a comprehensive range of home insurance products, including building insurance, home contents insurance, landlord insurance and high-value home insurance under the name ‘TailorMade’.

Build and home contents cover is available at two levels – essential and premier – but both offer a range of benefits of up to £1,000,000 buildings cover and £75,000 contents cover, new for old replacement of items if repair is not feasible and accidental damage cover for non portable electrical items.

In addition to this, premier cover also offers a no claims discount benefit, as well as replacement of matching pairs or sets of items (for example, earrings or three-piece suites). A number of other benefits come as standard with premier cover, and can be added to essential cover as an optional extra. These include full accidental damage cover and personal belongings cover.

Saga’s landlord cover offers variable sum-insured amounts, accidental damage cover, legal expenses cover, malicious damage and vandalism, alternative accommodation cover and optional rent guarantee cover, which offers protection in the event that a tenant fails to pay rent.

Saga’s high-value home cover, ‘TailorMade’, is a specialist home insurance product for customers needing more than £89,000 contents cover or £1,000,000 buildings cover.

The company also offers a range of optional extras, including garden cover and home emergency cover, and personal belongings and legal expenses for any policies which do not include them as standard.
