This cover doesn't come as standard with any of our policies so if you do have any treasured possessions you'll need to tell us about them when you take out your insurance policy.
For items to be specified, you'll need to tell us the item type, a description and the value. In some instances you may need to provide proof of valuation.
Many of us could have valuables in our home without being aware of them, just think about all things gathering dust in the attic or the back of a cupboard. Take a look at our guide which will help you find any hidden valuables in your home.
If you have a large number of valued items, you may need a higher level of cover. Here's some more information to help you choose the best policy for you.
