Have you got it covered? These days, you probably have. Insurance is now available for nearly anything, covering the most important - and probably the most expensive - possessions in your and your family's lives: your home and its contents, your vehicle and your holiday.
Just as with life and health insurance, arranging cover for your expensive and/or treasured possessions provides peace of mind should the worst happen - theft or fire loss in your home, an accident that destroys your car, or a loss of luggage or difficulty abroad which has the potential to ruin your dream holiday.
And while insurance can never replace the loss of a family heirloom, it can help to ensure you are not bankrupted replacing a necessity.
Depending on what you're insuring, policies and premiums will differ greatly - some will be short-term and cover only emergencies, while others like motor or house and contents insurance will be more long-term in nature and will likely adapt to your changing circumstances during the term of your policy.
There is no shortage of companies wanting to sell you insurance - insurance companies and brokers now have to compete with banks, supermarkets and travel agents to sell you a policy, and the wide variety on offer can be confusing. How much coverage do you need? And how do you know that you're getting the policy you need at the best possible price?
