When you take out a policy with us, we’ll fix the price for the next two renewals so you’ll know exactly what you’ll be paying 

How our fixed price policy works

The price of your cover is fixed for 2 consecutive renewals, subject to you renewing annually. The fixed price will end if we make a claim payment. If Insurance Premium tax changes, or you make an amendment that affects the premium, the subsequent renewal premium(s) will remain fixed at the new price for the remainder of the fixed price period. Quotes are valid for 90 days. Underwriting criteria apply. Excludes Private Insurance. Underwritten by U K Insurance Limited.

  Switching from another insurer?

Switch to NatWest home insurance and you can claim up to £50 towards cancellation fees you pay your existing insurer.

After purchasing and cancelling your existing cover you should call U K Insurance Limited who will arrange reimbursement in 7-10 days.
