Home contents insurance
Basic coverage

You are covered if damage occurs to your property after fire, lightning or explosion.

The policy protects your personal items, belongings or property against theft. Insurance coverage depends on whether the event took place inside or outside your home. It also depends on whether your home and your items were properly secured or not.

Especially for bike theft: You can choose from different sums insured – fitting your needs. The standard coverage is up to DKK15,000 per bike.

Moreover, the insurance policy also covers intentional damage to things you own, for instance, in case of burglary at home.

The insurance also protects your bike in public space against failed theft attempts.

It provides coverage to pay for claims of bodily injury and property damage (incl. pets) sustained by others for which you or covered residents of your household are legally responsible.

You are covered if someone with fake intentions gets access to your home or property.

The insurance provides coverage if a person uses or threatens to use violence, damages or steals by force your personal goods. 

We provide insurance coverage to help pay for legal advice and proceedings in certain types of conflicts. Moreover, we cover mediation, which is arbitration or a voluntary form of conflict settlement.

You can read more about it in the insurance terms and conditions, article 8.

If you need help for a mental health crisis or emergency after witnessing or been involved in one of the following events:

  • Home fire - whether you are home or not.
  • Home burglary - to family members who were at home when it happened. But also to those who came home after the home break-in.
  • Road accidents.
  • Assault and robbery.
  • Theft by trick at home.
  • Death of an immediate family member.
  • Life-threatening health condition, including your immediate family.
  • Suicide or attempted suicide in your immediate family.

As part of your insurance, you have access to the 'Tryg I Livet' helpline.

They have trained counsellors available to speak with you about overwhelming difficult situations and stress in your life. They can also provide other relevant information you may need about public emergency services.

Options

  • Sewer flooding or water escaping from drain pipes and systems, for instance, toilets, due to heavy cloudbursts or snow thawing.
  • Storm-, hail-, snow and ice accumulation-, melting snow- and rainwater damage to your personal possessions following damage to the building that would be considered a valid insurance claim.
