Chubb Personal Insurance
Whether you own a single home, multiple homes around the world, a Georgian rectory or a city penthouse - a Masterpiece policy
is designed to help protect you from unpleasant surprises at the time of a loss, with cover and service that is not readily
available from most other insurance companies.
Avoid under insurance through our appraisal service
Unlike most insurers, we don't make under-insurance your problem by leaving you to guess the amount of cover you need. We
have our own team of expert appraisers who provide a free service to establish the rebuild cost of your property. To learn
more, visit Appraisal Service.
Full cost of damage and rebuild is covered
Once your home is appraised, we can offer our "Extended Replacement Cost guarantee". Chubb will rebuild your damaged home
exactly as it was before - even if it costs more than we originally agreed in the policy. And to maintain your standard of
living, if a property is being rebuilt, we will pay for you to stay in a comparable property.
We do not give unlimited cover for a few unusual buildings, but we will agree an appropriate value with you and pay up to
the building's agreed maximum sum insured.
Your choice of contractors
We allow you to choose your contractors and craftsmen. Most insurers insist that you use their contractors. This is cheaper
for them, but specialist repair can be paramount to the future market value of your property.
"All risks" worldwide cover, including accidental loss and damage
Our broad cover means all your possessions are automatically covered wherever you are in the world for accidental loss and
damage, including breakage - even when travelling or in storage.
No restrictive conditions or "warranties"
Many insurers' small print can restrict your lifestyle. Chubb doesn't do this. We rely on your natural concern to care for
your possessions. For example, unlike other insurers, we don't insist you set your alarm every time you leave the house for
just 5 minutes.
We settle on a "new for old" basis
When replacing your contents, Chubb pays you what it costs to replace the item today, up to the agreed level of your sums
insured. So all your possessions, from sports equipment to valuable antiques, are covered, without deduction or depreciation
- even clothing.
Choice of cash or repair/replacement
You can choose to receive cash, up to the policy limit, if you decide not to rebuild your home or replace your possessions
in the event of a total covered loss.
All homes on one policy
All your homes can enjoy the same exceptional cover on the same policy as your main residence.
Identity fraud and family protection cover
Chubb provides cover for identity fraud, kidnap, car jacking, aggravated burglary, air rage and stalking incidents within
a home policy. We help to overcome the financial, physical and emotional trauma of such occurrences.
Car jacking, aggravated burglary and stalking cover is worldwide, apart from those countries listed on the Foreign Office
'Travel Warnings' list.
Range of unique liability covers included
For example, worldwide legal liability cover for you and your family – including up to £10 million for libel, slander and
defamation. And automatic cover for you and your family when you hire or borrow vehicles in the US/Canada. We also provide
£100,000 legal expenses for you and your family – covering issues such as bodily injury or employment disputes.
Travel insurance included
With Masterpiece and Signature the majority of home policies automatically include travel insurance. This protects the whole
family and any domestic staff residing with the policyholder. It provides some of the most generous limits available.
