Home insurance: COVID-19 Cover Enhancements - Working from home
As more of us are working from home during COVID-19 we are extending our cover to provide you with some extra protection and peace of mind.
Bicycles are unfortunately an easy target for thieves and a reported 275,000 thefts are carried out in England and Wales each year*. The good news is Ecclesiastical automatically includes cover as part of your home contents insurance.
If you're away from home and have portable items cover on your policy, providing your bike is valued less than £750, the home insurance will provide cover for theft, loss and accidental damage. If your bike is valued more than £750, please make sure you let us know as we can specify it on your policy to ensure full cover is provided.
Contents within outbuildings at your property are covered up to your total contents sum insured. The only exception for this, is that the policy has a theft limit of £5,000 for any one year of insurance. This figure is on top of any specified items on your policy that are kept within your outbuilding.
Bicycles within outbuildings are automatically covered for up to £750 each, unless they are specified on your policy. To specify a bicycle on your policy, please contact us as we may have additional security measures to discuss.
