Many people in the UK live in places that are considered to be at risk from flooding, especially those who live near rivers and the sea. If you are one of many families or individuals who live in a risk zone, flood insurance is one way in which you can go about protecting your possessions.
In many ways flood insurance in high risk zones is similar to other home insurance policies except that it only protects you from very specific types of property loss, so always make sure you are aware of any exclusions contained within a policy.
