Home Insurance FAQs
Do I need home insurance?
Home insurance gives you peace of mind that should anything happen to your home, the cost of rebuilding it will be covered by your insurance provider. Not only that, banks require you to have home insurance as part of your mortgage agreement. When you get a home insurance quote from Chill we get more quotes than any other leading provider and give you a €65 online discount.
What do you actually mean by contents?
Contents are everything you could take if you were to hypothetically move house. We recommend you spend some time creating an inventory of your contents in each room (don't forget the shed and garden too). We've put together a home contents calculator that will help you get to an estimated value for your contents.
How can I work out the right building cover for my home?
To calculate how much you should insure your property for, you'll need to find out the rebuilding costs. You can do this by looking at the survey or valuation report that was undertaken when you got your mortgage. Do bear in mind that the market value of a home has little relation to the costs of actually rebuilding a property. We recommend that you visit the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland website to work out the rebuilding cost of your property.
Can I get home insurance same day?
In most cases we can get you covered on a new home insurance policy same-day. Our online quote finds more quotes than any other leading provider and you can buy your policy online straight away. If you have any questions our friendly Dublin-based support team will be able to help.
Are my personal possessions covered when I take them outside of my home?
Personal possessions away from the home aren't covered as standard but you can take out personal possessions insurance, sometimes called specific all-risks insurance. Please check your policy documents for full details on what is covered and any limits.
Are laptops and computers covered by my home insurance?
Yes, provided that the computer is only for personal use. In order to insure your computer for when you're not at home you'll have to take out personal possessions cover.
Are possessions in my shed, garage or garden covered by my home insurance?
Items stored in your garage or shed generally will be covered but some conditions may apply. This is also true for anything you store outside, such as a lawnmower. Please check your policy documents for more information.

I've been offered home insurance by my bank - do I have to take it out with them?
No, in fact there is legislation giving you complete freedom to shop around for cheap home insurance quotes. The key thing to remember is that your buildings must be insured to the amount stated by your bank or building society when they valued the property, but you are NOT obliged to take out a policy with them.
