Due to having a criminal reccord I was give massive quotes for home and contest insurance Most beingbover £1500 Yet homeprotect came in at just over £300 For exactly the same policy ReviewCentre, 2 March 2017
The quote was quick and easy to get and at a very reasonable rate. And no problem with a (very minor) criminal record - some insurers just have a blanket refusal! ReviewCentre, 25 Feb 2017
My son-in-law had a criminal record and only HomeProtect would offer house insurance at a a reasonable price. Every time I phone to discuss renewals, they are always helpful. Trustpilot, 31 Oct 2016
