    Filling in online for home insurance quote a few questions? 17th Mar 17 at 1:23 PM
    Hi folks,

    Just getting this years insurance quotes online on Moneysupermarket and a few questions if anyone can advice me.

    1 I claimed once for child damaging the bath, and got just over 2000 as whole bathroom needed to be redone, does this come under buildings or contents?

    2 So if under one or the other above I Just put zero years no claims in the relevant section (where it states 0,3,5 years no claims) near end of online form as I have claimed in the last year? as I have made a claim.

    3 It does ask about the amount of my claim, I just put in the settled amount or should I put in the amount that I claimed for less the excess?

    4 My current insurance provider Tesco Bank is still the cheapest quote, but if I do find that the auto renew letter price they send me before the due date is higher, can I just go for the online price provided by Moneysupermarket?

    Thanks a lot for to anyone who can advice me.

    1) Buildings
    2) zero, unless your current insurers offer no claims discount for x number of years, which any new insurers would also allow. Most don't offer such a discount, so probably zero.
    3) total value of claim
    4) If Tesco are quoting cheaper online as a new customer, you can take that, but remember to cancel current auto renewal policy
