Fire insurance, a comprehensive coverage
Fire insurance covers more than just fire damage. Basic and optional coverage covers the main risks for your home.
Broader coverage than fire
Fire insurance, also known as home insurance, covers damage caused by fire but not only that. Theft, water damage, glass breakage, etc. can also be covered.
In a standard policy, there are often two possibilities for insuring your home: basic coverage and options. The combination of these 2 possibilities offers the insured a complete coverage ofhis home and its content.
1. Basic cover
These are all the elements that are automatically included in the contract. For example, reimbursement of damage caused by a fire for which you are responsible.
2. The options
Options are additional and optional elements. By choosing different for options, the insured extends his or her coverage. The risks covered may be directly or indirectly related to the fire.For example, legal protection, which covers possible legal costs after a loss.Or theft protection, which allows you to be reimbursed in the event of a burglary.
