Christmas time of course means that we all have a few more possessions, either in the house or coming home from the shops. However, are we all prepared with extra insurance cover?

Saga has stepped up to the plate to ensure that their motor insurance and home insurance doesn't leave you wanting. Their home contents insurance increases by 10% to cover the extra gifts in the house, while their motor insurance doubles its personal belongings cover to £2000, perfect for those extra gifts being carried in the car.

Commenting on their home and car insurance, Saga Services Chief Executive Roger Ramsden: "Despite it being the season of goodwill, there are some unscrupulous individuals out there willing to steal presents from the boots of cars or from under our Christmas trees. Saga Insurance has chosen to provide that extra level of cover at the time of year when people have more valuables in their cars or homes."
