Finding the right home contents insurance can be time-consuming. We’ve put together some advice to help you find the right deal.

You can buy home contents insurance from lots of places. Price comparison sites like Money Supermarket offer renters’ contents insurance for those renting their home. You can apply online, compare different policies and select the one that’s right for you.

If you’d rather speak to someone about your options, you could call Thistle Tenant Risks.

The National Housing Federation (NHF) has teamed up with Thistle Tenant Risk to offer My Home Contents Insurance, a scheme designed for social and affordable housing customers.
