Household insurance is an optional personal lines product that customers purchase in order to protect their properties and contents against accidental damage. Home insurance can be bought in two parts - buildings insurance and contents insurance. Customers can choose either one or both of these based on their needs. Buildings cover insures the customer's bricks and mortar for events such as fire and weather damage, while contents cover is designed to protect the policy holder's belongings against incidents including theft, damage, and loss. Customers also have the option of purchasing a combined policy, which in some cases can be cheaper than buying two separate products.

Key Findings
- Aggregators remain a popular channel, but the majority of household insurance customers prefer to purchase directly from an insurer.

- Arranging cover over the phone and internet are the top two methods used across all of the distribution channels.
