A home insurance offer for shopping lovers

Spoil yourself. New customers get a Love2shop gift card worth up to £30.

Five-star home insurance.

Boasting a 10% introductory discount for new customers and no fee for paying monthly, our home insurance is a savvy choice. And with a Love2shop gift card worth up to £30 on offer, you can treat yourself too.

The offer is available to new Yorkshire Bank home insurance customers until 30 September 2019. £30 gift card is available on combined buildings and content cover. New customers taking building or contents only policies will qualify for a £15 gift card. Cover cancelled before the first 3 premiums have been paid will not qualify for the offer. Full terms apply (PDF, link opens in a new window).

You can personalise your cover so you know the important things are insured properly. We offer optional extras and you only pay for what you need. Don’t have a garden? Don’t fork out for the cover. It’s that simple.

  • Core cover for buildings up to £400,000 as standard, contents up to £50,000 as standard – or choose both for maximum protection.
  • 10% discount for new home insurance customers.
  • A 25% no claims discount for new home insurance customers who have not claimed on their home insurance in the past 4 years.
  • If you qualify for both the 10% new customer discount and 25% 4 years no claims offer, the 10% will be applied to the original quote first. The 25% reduction will then be applied to the discounted total.
  • Straight-up cover – you only pay for what you need. No garden? No problem.
  • Moneyfacts five-star rated cover.
  • No admin fees. Unlike some other insurers, if you make a change to your policy or cancel it, you won't have to pay an admin fee.
  • UK-based call centres.
  • No extra charge for paying monthly by direct debit.

Confused about Home Insurance?

Working out what cover to buy can often leave you with more questions than answers.

We’ve created a handy interactive tool which uses real life examples of items you may have in your house, to help you better understand what each of our additional cover options include. Our easy to navigate tool will help you to decide what cover you need and what else you might want to consider.

When you click on the hotspots our tool will tell you what cover you should purchase in order to make sure that you’re covered.

For example, if something were to happen with your plumbing or drainage (such as a burst pipe), your heating breaks down or you need rats or mice removed, would you want access to 24-hour emergency repair services to make your home safe and secure? Simply click on the mouse in the kitchen, you will see how easy it is.

You may still have questions after using our tool, if you do we are always happy to discuss home insurance in a bit more detail with you just pop into your local branch or call 0800 197 1612 .
