Does anyone have home insurance policy with "Home protect" under written by AvA??? I got a quote from confused. com and this company provides me with the cheapest quote. Ivv never heard of them before. What are your reviews??? Has anyone ever dealt with them before? ??

I took out a policy when I moved, as I was in a high flood zone. Could never get anyone to return my call when I wanted to lapse the policy,despite leaving several messages on their answer phone.

Says on their homepage that they are underwritten by Axa and other insurers. Sounds like they use a panel to source the best quote for you in their name. Nothing wrong with that.

We always stick with a good policy from a known company. That way never any doubt about your cover.

Always read negative reviews are they tend to be more representative. All insurance is good until you have to claim, then you find out how good they really are.

Check your cover is exactly what you need and no hidden exclusions.

check all small print i almost took one out have no alarm and then just clicked on a small conditions box which stated insurance was provided on basis alarm fitted this box was not prominent or made aware to me through internet sign up. would have paid premium and not actually been covered stick with better known company even though underwritten by axa when it comes to claiming is when you need the support / money
I've used them via a price comparison website but obviously never claimed.
You never know how good they are until you make a claim.
For that reason and if I could I'd insure with Churchill everytime.

Hi transit, It all depends on the postcode of the property and the amount of Contents cover required. To offset the additional risk that some cases pose, yes there is a requirement (or "endorsement" in Insurance-lingo) that requires an alarm to be fitted and in use every day, to be covered for burglary theft. If this does apply to your particular scenario (and everyone is different) then it's clearly shown in normal size red text immediately below the price in the online quote system on the quote page. If in doubt, please call our team, we're very happy to talk you through it. We're open until 8pm tonight. Kind regards, Elisabeth, Digital Marketing Manager, HomeProtect
