Cover for your most valuable possessions
Check your policy
Many insurers don't provide cover for items like antique furniture, pieces of art or statues under standard home contents policies. Some contents insurance policies have a 'Single Article Limit' that assumes that no single item covered by the policy is worth more than the amount stated.
Hiscox Home Insurance provides £10,000 of cover for fine art, antiques and collections as standard. If yours are worth more, please tell us the total value of the items you wish to cover. And if you'd like us to provide cover for any antique jewellery and watches, simply tell us how much cover you need.
If your collection is worth up to £250,000, Hiscox Collections may be suitable for you. Here you can insure your collection online, without having to list any individual items with a value of less than £15,000. We’ll give you an immediate quote and cover in minutes.
