How much is enough?
The cost of your contents insurance premium will depend on the value of the items you are looking to insure. You can take out insurance to cover from a minimum of €10,000 in contents. In order to make sure you are fully covered if you had to replace the contents of your home, after a fire, for example, it's important to work out how much it would cost to replace all of your contents with new items.
