How can I compare student insurance policies?

What are the differences between the standard student insurance policies?

As with all insurance, you need to choose a policy that best suits your needs. Companies provide different benefits and levels of cover within their student insurance and it is important that you compare policies to find the right cover for you.

There are far fewer providers of student insurance currently. Indeed, one of the biggest and well-known, Endsleigh, no longer offers separate student accommodation insurance. If more insurers come forward to take up the baton we will include those on our pages.

In the meantime you could consider home insurance which includes the option of covering students away from home and gadget insurance for those more expensive items.

Here we focus on some of the common areas of student insurance:

Accidental Damage - Will your possessions be covered for accidents as well as theft?

Walk-in-Theft - Will you be covered if your individual room does not have a lock?

Holiday Cover - What happens if your possessions are damaged whilst you are at home for the holidays?

Tenants Liability Insurance - Will you be able to claim if you damage the landlord's property?
