Saga sends seasons greetings to Home and Motor Insurance customers during the festive season

  • Saga Home Insurance contents cover increases by 10%
  • Saga Motor Insurance personal belongings cover doubles to £2,000
  • Average Christmas gift spend is £435

Saga Insurance sends Seasons Greetings to Home and Motor Insurance customers in the festive season. Throughout the month of December, Saga Home Insurance contents cover automatically increases by 10 per cent and Saga Motor Insurance personal belongings cover doubles to £2000. This is one of the existing product features of home and motor insurance included to cover the added value of gifts in people’s homes and cars and the potential increased risk of theft.

Research conducted has shown that people will be spending on average £435 each on gifts this year* and with 70%** of the over 50s enjoying Christmas in their own homes, compared to only 38% of the under 50s, these increased cover levels will ensure that, should thieves strike during the festive season, customers have peace of mind that they will be fully covered.

Andrew Goodsell, Executive Chairman, Saga Group commented: “Despite it being the season of goodwill there are some unscrupulous individuals out there. We urge people to make sure the gifts they buy over the next few weeks are out of sight of potential thieves, and ensure that home windows and doors are secure.”
