Post Office launches extra cover to protect Christmas gifts for homeowners

Post Office launches extra cover to protect Christmas gifts for homeowners

People who have just bought houses for sale in the UK could be tempted to take out home contents insurance with the Post Office after it revealed that it will offer more protection this Christmas.

The financial services provider has increased the cover on its Post Office Home Insurance policy by ten per cent during December 2010, in anticipation for the extra valuables being stored within properties over the festive period.

Policyholders will automatically benefit from this additional increase, so that they do not have to worry as much about their goods being damaged or stolen.

The firm's head of Home Insurance Gerry Barrett said: "By automatically raising the level of cover during this period, the Post Office ensures that customers have one less thing to worry about."

Therefore, he added, homeowners can "enjoy the festive season with peace of mind".

People were also recently encouraged to take out comprehensive home insurance after Confused.com's Gareth Kloet said the colder weather can cause "massive damage" to properties, adding that cover will "minimise the impact" of any costs incurred. ADNFCR-1222-ID-800277409-ADNFCR
