Jessica Willock, home insurance expert at, comments:

“When searching for bargains in Europe’s best spots, there is the potential to find high-value items for a fraction of the cost. Despite their discounted price, it’s important to consider the true value of any purchases made in markets, antique stores or outlets. This is to ensure that you have the appropriate cover on your contents insurance policy to protect your valuables.

Typical policies for antique items vary from accidental loss, damage and theft to depreciation in value cover. With this protection, If an item in your collection gets damaged and can’t be repaired, or it’s possible to repair but it results in a loss of value, the insurer should pay out.

If you do need to make a home insurance claim, it’s important that you fully understand the type of cover you have.”
