The new features will include cover for plants in the garden, trace and access, emergency services access, and increased cover on replacement locks and keys.
As a result of the increased cover, Nationwide’s Home Insurance will become a 5-Star Rated product by financial research company Defaqto for both Buildings and Contents cover.
Robin Bailey, Nationwide’s director of insurance, said: "Given the current tough economic climate, it is perhaps more important then ever for homeowners to have quality insurance in place to protect their assets.
"Therefore, we are delighted to be increasing the extent of cover available through our buildings and contents insurance, making Nationwide an even better choice for our customers.
"These changes will see Nationwide’s Home Insurance recognised as a 5-Star product by financial research company Defaqto, and act as an endorsement of just how competitive our offering is in the current market."
