You can earn up to 10,000 Avios when you take out household, business or landlord insurance via Alan Boswell Group. Take out more than one policy and you will earn another bonus.

If your household insurance is due soon you may want to give them a call.

If you have a buy to let property, you can get up to 10,000 Avios when you take out landlord insurance. You will also earn points if you take out business insurance for your company.

This is how many Avios you can earn when taking out a policy:

1,000 Avios per policy priced betweeen £100 and £200

2,000 Avios per policy priced between £200 and £499

min 10,000 Avios per policy priced above £1,000

The company is also able to offer negotiated bonuses for very large policies. They told us that they recently did a special Avios deal for someone taking out a £5,000 household policy. The highest amount of Avios paid out so far in one transaction is 50,000.

    OT: anyone knows what’s happening In Amsterdam airport today? Most evening flights delayed including ours…

    We were meant to depart at 19:40, delayed until 22:30 (annoyingly it is just short of 3 hours). This is a flight to Leeds. No chance of EU compensation ????

    • the real harry1 says:

      You can get free food & drinks (not alcohol) after 2 hrs delay, European short haul. Duty of care. They won’t offer it so you’ll have to buy some snacks & claim it later. Keep receipts.

    • Yan says:

      Thunderstorms, high delays in western Europe (LON, AMS, FRA, DUS)

      • the real harry1 says:

        & duty of care isn’t impacted by weather or extraordinary circs – they have to look after you.

        A tenner or so each would be refunded if it’s just a couple of hours delay and you get the munchies, presumably receipt should state time after 2 hrs is up.

        • Boi says:

          Thanks guys- their duty of care was a €5 voucher for use at very select restaurants.
          The captain said delay was weather related on the flight from LBA, so seems problem was in UK not AMS.

    • the real harry1 says:

      @ Boi – the departure time is irrelevant – the 3 hrs limit means time you arrive (with first door open) at destination – vs scheduled arrival time, there might be a bit of congestion so go into hold pattern

  • Anne says:

    Just wanted to add a positive comment about Alan Boswell. I contacted them via their Avios email address last year to enquire about renewing my home insurance, the response was prompt and professional and they were more than happy to help despite me only having a low value contents only policy. They matched my renewal premium with better cover so I went for it and, IIRC, the Avios posted within a couple of days. My only complaint was they didn’t take Amex!

    • Jeremy I says:

      Yes i also found them to be both competitive prices and great customer service last year when i bought a small contents insurance policy from them.

  • Down the Back says:

    Mrs DtB contacted AB last week for a quote and found the service very good and the price was also competitive, unfortunately we didn’t go ahead as the excess was way more than we currently have but having said that the cover was also better ie our current cover for the rings is only when they are being worn, AB cover was anytime.
