Eagle Star Home Insurance offers sizeable discounts to employees of hundreds of different UK firms. The quotation process is very time-consuming and we encountered a few problems inputting values; premiums were reasonable but not particularly competitive.

- Buildings insurance
- Contents insurance
- Accidental damage insurance
- Legal protection
Eagle Star Home Insurance is a subsidiary of Zurich but unlike its parent, it's happy to insure flats and you don't have to use another firm's online ordering system.
The forms are very detailed and the firm promises sizeable discounts for employees of certain UK companies – hundreds of firms rather than a handful – although the quote process can be flaky: rather than pre-set levels of cover, you have to type the figures in yourself and the site frequently rejects your input. However, after a few unsuccessful attempts we managed to get a quote: Eagle Star Home Insurance would cost £232.62 for our suburban family, and a terrifying £371.25 for our urban couple.
