It doesn't matter whether you're a new customer, or renewing your cover, you're always guaranteed to get our Clubcard discount. All you need to do is tell us your Clubcard number when you get a quote.

What's covered

Buildings cover

Our buildings cover protects your bricks and mortar, as well as the permanent fixtures and fittings inside.

Repair and rebuild – we're here to help

If the worst happens and you need to repair or rebuild your property, don't worry. Whether it's from falling branches, flood or fire, Tesco Bank Home Insurance gives you unlimited cover to pay for the cost of fixing your home and any outbuildings – including the wall around the edge of your land.

If it's built-in, it's covered

We haven't forgotten the permanent fixtures in your home so rest assured that your built-in kitchen and wardrobes, showers and baths are covered too.

Subsidence

We will cover your property should it be exposed to subsidence or heave of the site on which the buildings stand, or in the event of a landslip.

Liability Cover

As the owner of the property your liability is covered. Our buildings insurance gives you up to £2m protection if someone is injured, dies, or other circumstances occur where you are legally responsible as the owner of the property, to pay damages.

If you are both the owner and the occupier of the building, to protect yourself you will also need to arrange contents insurance which provides occupier's liability cover.

Pipes and plumbing

You're covered for any repairs to burst or freezing pipes, whether it's water pipes or those carrying heating oil.

And if a sewer pipe gets blocked, we'll pay up to £5,000 to cover the cost of getting into the pipe between the main sewer and your home and fixing the problem.

We understand that a heating or plumbing emergency can turn your household upside down, so we will help you get back to normal as soon as possible so for an additional premium, our Home Emergency cover can make sure it gets sorted out as quickly as possible.

Home Emergency cover is underwritten by Interpartner Assistance SA.

Accidental breakage, fixed

Accidents happen. So if your windows, the glass in your doors or even your solar panels get broken, we'll pay for replacements. We know that even the hardy bathroom sink isn't safe (aftershave bottles don’t bounce!) so the bathroom suite's covered too.

Replacement locks fitted for you

If you lose your house keys outside the home, or if they get stolen, we'll pay for new locks on your outside doors, helping to secure your home and your peace of mind.

Alternative accommodation when you need it most

If the damage to your home means that it isn't safe to stay there, we'll make sure that you and your loved ones, including your pets, have a suitable place to live while it's being repaired - up to a total of £50,000.

We also have a number of optional extras to boost your cover for an additional premium.

Monetary levels, excesses and exclusions apply. For full details of cover and exclusions please read the policy documents. See our policy documents

Buildings optional extras

You can tailor your buildings cover by adding these optional extras for an additional premium.

Extended accidental damage

You'll get all the cover provided with our standard package, plus protection against things like:

  • Putting your foot through ceiling when you're in the loft
  • Banging the hammer through a wall when you're hanging a picture
  • Burning the kitchen worktop with a hot pan

Home Emergency cover

If the heating or power in your home goes off, or if there's a plumbing emergency, sorting it out can be stressful and time consuming. Our Home Emergency cover can help you take care of things quickly so you're up and running again as soon as possible.

  • Up to £1.000 for call-outs, labour, parts and materials
  • 24-hour access to Home Emergency claims centre
  • No excess to pay and unlimited call-outs
