Your household contents are not just things, but they include your favourite sofa, favourite suit or favourite bike. With Helvetia household contents insurance, these are ideally insured.
With household contents insurance, you insure the items in your household at replacement value. Your household is thus ideally insured in the event of damage caused by fire, water or natural forces, burglary or glass breakage.
Helvetia household contents insurance covers you in the event of damage to your household contents and valuables as a result of fire or damage by natural forces, theft, water inside the building or glass breakage affecting buildings and furniture.
Your household contents and valuables are also insured at their replacement value outside of the home (up to 20% of the agreed household contents sum insured, min. CHF 10,000).Also covered are guest effects and items entrusted to you, as well as the costs of clearing up the site of damage or additional living expenses arising in connection with the occurrence of insured damage.

The household contents include all movable, personal property, i.e. all the things you own and which you can take with you if you move house. The household contents belong to the policyholder or persons living in the same household. Examples of household contents include furniture, items of clothing, electronic devices, cash, jewellery, watches, paintings (valuables insurance and/or art insurance is recommended for more expensive items), bikes, pets or personal items belonging to guests.
Your household contents are insured in the location you have entered in your insurance contract, or that is listed in your policy. The items may be in your home, but also in a shed (on the same plot) or in the garage. A separate household contents insurance policy must be concluded for holiday apartments or second homes.
In addition, your items that are temporarily (not longer than one year) located away from your home are insured worldwide. This applies to damage caused by fire, natural forces, theft (burglary and robbery) and water.
You are underinsured if the sum insured that has been agreed in the policy is lower than the replacement value of the insured household contents. If you find yourself with a cover shortage, Helvetia can reduce the compensation sum in case of a claim (including with partial damages).
