What is an Excess?


The excess is the amount you pay towards each agreed claim. When you take out your home insurance policy, you can choose to have a voluntary excess. The compulsory excess depends on the insurer and what their terms are. In general, the higher the excess the lower your premium. However, it’s important not to increase it too much in case you are unable to afford to pay it if you need to make a claim.
