Free contents insurance

Free contents insurance for our student tenants

All our student tenants get free contents insurance

Any student who rents with Purple Frog for the 2017/18 academic year will automatically receive contents insurance, as part of their tenancy.

Purple Frog is working with student insurance experts Endsleigh to enable all Purple Frog tenants to have free contents insurance. The policy covers all of our tenants, whether you live in a property that is managed by us, or if it is let-only (managed directly by your landlord). This means that any student who secures a property with Purple Frog and pays an admin fee for the 2017/18 academic year will automatically receive contents insurance, as part of their tenancy.

How do I activate the policy?

You don’t have to do anything. Simply choose which of our student accommodation you want to live in. The policy will start automatically on the day that your tenancy begins. We will send the information to Endsleigh informing them of all new tenancies and the tenants names.

You will also receive a template document from Endsleigh confirming their policies (and the policy wording and terms and conditions). When you receive this email you will also have the opportunity to add any extra services that you wish to.
