What you gain with our Home Insurance during winter
The colder months can bring unwanted surprises around the home. With an increased likelihood of fire (Christmas lights and candles), water damage (burst pipes from freezing temperatures) and theft (November has the highest theft rate), a home with coverage in the winter months is better set for the season.
AA Home Insurance includes fire brigade charges, freezer food cover, increased contents cover during the Christmas Period, as well as providing alternative accommodation in the unlikely event that your home becomes uninhabitable for some insured reason; a must in the colder months.
