Choosing the right insurance

We’ll help you find a deal that’s right for you

There are lots of places to purchase contents insurance. For example, Money Supermarket is a price comparison site which offers a Renters contents insurance for people renting a property. You can apply online and compare different policies and select one that's just right for you.

If you'd rather speak to someone about your options, then why not give Thistle Tenant Risks a call? The National Housing Federation have teamed up with them because they provide My Home Contents Insurance, a scheme designed for customers living in social and affordable housing.
