Top Home - BNP Paribas Fortis
so much more than just fire cover
Your house is far more than simply
a roof over your head to protect you
from the elements.
Solid basic policy and options
tailored to your needs
It’s where you come to rest after
a hard day’s work, where you tuck
in your kids at night, where you
entertain your friends and where you
keep your most precious possessions.
A place that means everything to you.
Do you own your house? Are you a
landlord? Are you renting a flat? Or
are you in the process of building or
renovating? BNP Paribas Fortis draws
on the extensive product range of
AG Insurance to offer you optimum
protection in all those situations.
Alongside an exceptionally complete
basic policy, Top Home allows you
to choose from a wide
selection of optional covers
that tailor your insurance
to your precise needs.

It goes without saying that Top Home
insures you against fire. It will

find you a hotel during the rebuilding period, help with the children and
your pets, arrange for your home to

And that’s not all! Your integrated
home insurance cover also helps you

cost a lot of money too, without ever
losing sight of the fact that your home
is much more than just a set of walls,
with a roof, doors and windows.

which you grow your vegetables are
all protected. The same goes for your
fencing, even if it consists of a hedge.

model! You’re even insured against
condensation inside your doubleglazing that stops you seeing through
your windows properly.

freezer to defrost? We’ll compensate
you for the spoiled food.
