Protect yourself against property damage and losses regardless of the cause with no average clause applicable. You can rely on comprehensive insurance, few restrictions, and complete peace of mind. The lack of an 'average' clause means that if you underinsure you are not going to be penalized by Circles at claim time.. IF you only half insure you will thus be paid out the sum insured for any valid claim say for total loss.

Circles provide an optional payment basis where if the unexpected should happen and your home is damaged, they will pay to have your home rebuilt or repaired to its original state and beauty, even if the costs exceed your policy limits.
