How we analyse home insurance
We analyse and rate 48 key elements of standard buildings home insurance policies to come up with the buildings policy score and 67 key elements of standard contents home insurance policies to come up with the contents policy score. We assess how important each individual element is to consumers when choosing and using a home insurance policy, and weight it accordingly when calculating our policy scores.
Initially, we score all of the product elements out of five, reflecting how competitive each provider is in this area compared with other insurers. Weightings are then applied to the higher and lower element scores to enhance / reduce their impact in the overall product score.
