Whether you’re a homeowner, car owner, or have an investment property or two up your sleeve, knowing your property is covered will give you the peace of mind should the unexpected occur.

But where does one start when looking for a policy that gives you the cover you need at a price that won’t break the bank? Well, a good place to begin your search is with the winners of the Mozo Experts Choice Awards for car, home and landlord insurance.

“Insurance is one of those things you don't really want to have to pay for it until you need it, but if something happens and you can make a claim it can make a massive difference to how well you recover from a bad situation”,  Mozo Expert, Peter Marshall said.“

It is important to make sure you understand what a policy does (and does not) cover to get the right insurance for your situation. Mozo analysis has found that even policies with similar levels of cover can have vastly different prices. Our awards are a great place to start for anyone looking for a new insurance policy as we compare both cover levels and prices to find those that we believe offer the best value overall” Peter Marshall concluded.

This year’s Mozo Experts Choice Awards for Car, Home and Landlord Insurance were split into two categories: Exceptional Value and Exceptional Quality. To determine the winners, the Mozo experts compared over 160 policies from all three categories to determine the winners.
