If you're looking for a new home insurance policy, you'll want it to be one you can trust, with the features you need and a level of service you can rely on. Sometimes knowing where to start can be easier said than done, so we're here to help.

We've done the hard work for you by thoroughly analysing the home insurance market, and have just completed our annual assessment, awarding Star Ratings to those providers who really come out on top - giving you a great idea of the products and providers that could meet your needs.

Ratings you can trust

The Moneyfacts Home Insurance Star Ratings are based on the weighting of specific features, outside of premiums, that are likely to be the most relevant to those looking to take out a policy. This ensures that the products highlighted offer the best quality as well as the best price, with our knowledge gained from in-depth analysis of these products being put to excellent use.

As a result, the ratings give consumers an extra degree of confidence that the policy offers all the protection they require - and, because the results are based on truly impartial analysis, the ratings can be trusted. They've been specifically designed to act as an independent badge of approval that can make products stand out when you're comparing policies, helping you in the all-important decision-making process.

"Ensuring one's home and beloved possessions are protected can be a confusing task for many consumers," said Samantha Owens, Insight manager at Moneyfacts. "Whether they are considering cover for every scenario or just protecting themselves from the worst case, finding the best cover for their budget can leave them with endless possibilities.

"The annual Moneyfacts Home Insurance Star Ratings highlight those polices which offer the widest range of cover with the most competitive limits, helping the consumer filter down the market and aiding them to get the best policy they can."
