Home Insurance

Why everybody needs Home Contents Insurance

Home Contents Insurance protects the value of all the things in your home that you love, and it provides coverage for the people living there

Home Contents Insurance Insurance is for everybody living in a home, whether it is a rented or an owned property

Majority of residents in Qatar live in rented apartments or homes, which are typically insured by the landlord

What most of us are not aware of is that the contents of our home are not insured by the landlord’s insurance, nor is your maid and her liabilities

We’ve got you protected
