Churchill offers a range of additional protection to bolt onto your home insurance policy, including:
Your insurance excess is the amount of money you will need to pay towards a claim. Your insurer won’t pay out for a claim that costs less than this amount. A compulsory excess amount might vary depending on the age of your van and your driving experience.
A voluntary excess is on top and is normally set by you when taking out a policy. You’ll have the option of adding or increasing a voluntary excess, which should lower your premium.
With Churchill, you have the option of choosing your voluntary excess of between £100 and £500. There are also compulsory excesses for Churchill’s building insurance including £1,000 for subsidence, heave or landslip and £450 for escape of water.
You’ll find details about any compulsory or voluntary excesses in your policy document.
There are a number of factors that can affect the cost of your Churchill home insurance premium, including:
