Analysis of four years’ worth of claims data show the average number of home insurance claims reaches a peak in June when it’s 7.3% higher than the annual monthly average and dips to a low of in September when claims are 5.9% lower than average.

Gareth Kloet, head of home and car insurance at Confused.com, said: “We’d encourage homeowners to consider upgrading their security as both a way of safeguarding their possessions and as a method for reducing home insurance costs.

“For example, installing a properly fitted alarm and locks could bring lower home insurance premiums than if they were not fitted, so security could help save you money and protect your possessions.”
