What is my excess?
An excess is the amount of money you contribute when you make a claim. The amount of your excess will depend on the level of cover you have and the nature of your claim.
There are two different types of excess that are applied to the home insurance policy and these are:
- Voluntary excess which is the agreed amount you voluntarily contribute towards a claim. You can opt to pay this excess on top of your compulsory excess and you could receive a discount on your premium as a result.
- Compulsory excess which is the amount you are required to pay as stipulated by your insurer when you make a claim and when you have a degree of responsibility for any of the damages incurred.
The details of your policy’s excess will be shown in your insurance quote and in your policy documentation once you have purchased the Insure4Retirement’s home insurance.
How much is this going to cost me?
There are a number of factors that can affect the cost of your Insure4Retirement home insurance premium, including:
- The level of cover you choose. Whether you choose to use contents cover, buildings cover, or both, it will reflect on the overall price that you pay. Adding on optional extras will also add onto the price.
- Your sum insured. The greater the amount you wish to insure your home or contents for, the more you can expect to pay for cover.
- Your home. The age of your home and the materials from which it is constructed can influence its ability to withstand damage.
- Where your home is located. Certain risks, for example storm and theft, are more prevalent in certain areas, and insurers will take this into consideration when calculating your premiums.
- Security. Security measures such as an alarm system and deadbolts can act as a deterrent to thieves and therefore reduce the cost of your cover.
