We need both for our new house.

I'd be really pleased to hear any recommendations and companies to avoid.

TIA smile

Avoid sainsburys (underwritten by Halifax). They seem to be the only one that charges you an extra £250 on top of your excess if it's an escape of water claim - we'd missed that in the small print, to our cost. Now we've had a claim we're stuck with them as everyone else wants to charge a fortune hmm

Anyone used Directline? A friend recommended but I don't think he's had to claim before..

Privilege is part of direct line and they did the claim handling. I was very impressed with how helpful they were and how easy the claim process was.
