Automatic protection for Christmas pressies from Tesco Home Insurance

People embarking on their Christmas shopping and buying expensive gifts for loved ones probably don't think about the impact pricey presents are having on the value of their home contents.

They could be at risk of being underinsured should they fall victim to theft or loss as a result of a fire or flood.

Thankfully, Tesco Home Insurance applies an automatic month long uplift to the value of home contents covered on its Finest and Standard Home Insurance policies over the festive season, at no extra cost.

  • Customers with Tesco Finest buildings and contents insurance receive an automatic 20% uplift in contents insurance to cover gifts and extra food and beverages bought for Christmas.
  • Customers with Tesco Standard buildings and contents insurance receive an automatic 10% uplift in contents insurance to cover gifts and extra food and beverages bought for Christmas.

What’s more this automatic uplift applies to all religious festivals that take place throughout the year.
