The Co-operative Bank offers home contents cover for free

August 12, 2011

The Co-operative Insurance is offering customers six months free contents cover when they take out buildings insurance for their home until 31st October 2011.

Customers who take advantage of the deal could save an average of around sixty pounds*.

Lee Mooney, Head of Home Insurance at The Co-operative Insurance, said: “In today’s climate where money is tight, paying to insure your home contents can be lower down the priority list and not insuring can end up as a terrible false economy". “It's important your possessions are insured to avoid unnecessary upset should the unexpected happen. To ease the burden, we’re offering six months free contents cover with our buildings insurance to give customers the protection they need and a few extra pounds in their wallet at a time when household budgets are being trimmed.”

The Co-operative’s home insurance can be taken out at all Co-operative Bank and Britannia branches, on the phone and online.


*Based on a sample of 1,500 full price Co-operative Insurance home insurance policies, the average saving on contents insurance is £60.72.
