Is it advisable to take out contents insurance as a student?

It is not compulsory by law to take out household contents insurance, but it is certainly advisable. Also for students With the contents insurance you insure the loose items / stuff in your house or room. Examples are furniture, clothing, lamps, audio equipment, laptops and much more.

It is important to know the exact value of your possessions. Often it is worth more than you think. What if a fire or other unforeseen event would force you to buy everything again? You can imagine that this is a big expense, especially as a student and when you have little or no income.

How is the value of the contents calculated?

To calculate the overall value of the contents, you can use the contents value meter. Often this also provides a guarantee against underinsurance for a certain period, usually five years. This prevents you from having to notify the insurer of every purchase.

There are many insurers offering home contents insurance. Not all of these products are the same in terms of coverage. A higher premium therefore does not necessarily mean a better product for you. In addition, a relatively low premium may appeal to you, but then there may be a relatively high excess. It depends on your personal and financial situation which cover is most suitable for you.

What if there are peculiarities?

If you actually want to apply, always mention any special circumstances (e.g. insurance cancelled by the insurer in the past, CIS registration, etc.) so that we can submit the application directly to the right insurer for you. In case of such special circumstances, most insurers will not be able to insure you. In that case, however, we can request a no-obligation quotation for the household effects (and other insurances) from De Vereende. This insurer has a broader acceptance policy and in principle accepts everyone, even if, for example, you have defaulted on payment in the past. A condition is that you pay the first 3 months in advance. You can only take out insurance with De Vereende through an intermediary.

Please contact us by telephone for a quotation without obligation. At the moment, it is not yet possible to request this offer online.
