Home Insurance Payments

We understand that everybody’s different, so you can choose the payment method that suits you best. Check out our range of options.

You can choose to pay your premium by:

  • Monthly direct debit payments
  • Debit / credit card
  • One4all gift cards
  • At the Post Office

When paying monthly, you pay a flat service charge, currently 8%, which will stay the same for the length of the plan.

FAQs

Take some measures to improve the security of your home and you’ll not only reduce the risk of a break-in but you’ll also keep the cost of your home insurance down.

Here are some things you can do to beat the burglars:

  • Make it a habit to check that you have locked doors and windows when you leave the house.
  • Use locks on your windows and never leave the keys in the locks.
  • If you don’t have one, get an alarm and make sure it is visible as it puts off burglars.
  • Another good habit to get into is to leave a light on when you go out at night. If you’re going on holiday, use timer plugs on a few lights around the house.
  • Never leave a spare key in what you think might be a convenient hiding place, such as under the doormat or in a flowerpot – thieves know where to look.
  • Don’t leave your side gates, sheds or garages open or unlocked. Keep your ladders under lock and key, along with any tools that could be used to break into your home.
  • If you’re going away, don’t leave parcels on your doorstep for too long, or leave mail sticking out of your letterbox. Ask a reliable neighbour to keep an eye on things for you.
  • Never let valuables be seen from the windows and don’t label your house keys in case you lose them and the wrong person finds them.
  • Security lighting can help ward off intruders at night. If streetlights are not working on your road, report them to the council.
  • If you live in an apartment, never ‘buzz’ someone in on behalf of your neighbours if you don’t know who they are. Make sure nobody comes in the main front door behind you either.
  • If someone says they need to gain entry, to read your meter for example, check their photo identification card first. Put a spy hole into your front door and have a door chain fitted.
  • If there’s a Neighbourhood Watch scheme operating in your area, join it.

With our premium payment plan you can pay your premium over 10 monthly instalments. You can select to pay your instalments as follows:

  • By BillPay at the Post Office - using cash, cheque or debit card
  • By www.billpay.ie
  • By Direct Debit from your Bank Account. In this instance, you must pay your first instalment over the phone or by cheque, money order, credit card or debit card
  • You can then pay your remaining instalments automatically by Direct Debit from your bank account

Please note: a deposit of 20% is required for the first instalment and a service fee applies.

You have the option to increase the excess to €500, €750 or €1000 which will reduce your premium.
