You need to think about insuring the structure of your home, which we call "buildings" insurance as well as what’s in your home, which we call home "contents" insurance.

For buildings insurance, you should insure your house for its full re-building cost, i.e. how much it would cost to rebuild your home if it was totally destroyed. This is different to the market value of your home.

You can find your home's rebuilding cost on the Valuation Report or Survey report which was completed when you took out your mortgage (although, if it is more than a couple of years old, it might need to be increased to take account of inflation).

For contents insurance, you should insure the contents of your home for the amount it would cost you to replace them as new today.

Yes, you can add our optional Home Emergency cover for an additional premium to cover you for emergencies such as your boiler breaking down, your electrics failing or your water pipes bursting.

You can select this when deciding which other optional extras you wish to purchase online or when you call.

The minimum cover for contents is £100,000 for our Home Insurance cover and £50,000 for Home Insurance Essentials. For both products, cover is provided in multiples of £100.

Yes, if you take out the Nationwide Home Insurance policy, your personal possessions will be covered for loss or damage anywhere in the world (limits apply).

Personal Possessions cover will cover your possessions when you are away from home in the UK and for 60 days abroad in any one period of insurance.

The Nationwide Home Insurance Essentials policy does not include Personal Possessions cover outside of the home as standard but can be added as an optional extra.

If you need to add optional extras at any time, please call on 08000 51 02 16.
