In response to the Government launching its “Homes for Ukraine” scheme, which will let people in the UK host refugees in their homes, we wanted to give clarity on home insurance cover.

Put simply, different insurers will adopt a different stance. Aviva for example will treat refugees as guests, and therefore Aviva policyholders don’t need to tell us if they are housing refugees in their homes.

Please do check with us if you are hosting refugees and we will confirm conditions of cover.
