You can cover pretty much any financial risk in life with the right insurance.

Expat insurances in the Netherlands

 

Getting the right insurance now may save you a lot of money in the future. Whether your needs are simple or complex, we will help you find the proper insurance. Most policies will cover a number of different issues. We will search and compare a wide range of insurance offers from different insurance companies in the Netherlands and make sure you get right the expat insurance coverage.

Housing insurances

House insurance is also commonly called a homeowner’s insurance. House insurance policy pays to repair or rebuild your home if it is damaged or destroyed. You’re covered for the financial consequences by fire, hurricane, hail, lightning, or other disasters listed in your policy. This insurance is usually obligatory when you are buying a home with a mortgage, as the bank will want to make sure you have covered these risks as they can have huge implications on the property value and for you. Besides house insurance, it is also common to get household insurance. Household insurance is a policy that covers your home contents against loss, damage, or theft. It will also insure your contents from any water leakage, or damage caused by storms or flooding. Typical items covered by a policy include furniture, clothes, electrical items, money, and jewelry.

Life insurance

Life insurance protects your family and lets you leave them a non-taxable amount at the time of death. It is also often used to cover (part of) your mortgage. The important thing is to choose the right life insurance to match your budget and needs. Over the years, your needs, your family situation, and your life goals will evolve. When that happens, it will be time for you to re-evaluate the right type of insurance to ensure you are covered properly. You are never too young to buy life insurance, since the younger you are, the lower the premium. Our financial advisors are there to provide guidance in this process.

Health insurance

If you’re looking for the most suitable Dutch health insurance, you’ve come to the right place! We work with multiple health insurers and compare on both coverage and pricing. When you live or work in the Netherlands you have four months to apply for health insurance. By law, everybody has to have basic health insurance. The start date of your health insurance will always be the day you registered or started working in the Netherlands. Want to find out more about health insurance? Check our blog on how Dutch health insurances work.

Dutch expat moving abroad?

Working abroad is a unique experience and often an interesting opportunity for your career. But also if you are going on a longer trip abroad, backpacking, au pair or volunteer work, study or internship, you would want to have your insurances arranged as well as in The Netherlands. In most cases it will save you money and you will know what to expect with regard to service and coverage. We offer tailor-made expat insurance packages to suit your needs as Dutch expat abroad.

Other insurances

Besides the insurances mentioned above we are also able to arrange common damage insurances such as liability, car, travel, and legal insurance. But we also can help with insurances for art, musical instruments or jewelry. Setting up multiple insurances in one package will earn you a discount on the premium. We will also be your contact person in case you have a claim or want to make any adjustments. On top of that, you can access your insurances through an app so you always have an up to date overview. It really can’t be any easier.

I have had the pleasure to receive advice on financing for purchase of a house and subsequently receiving services in obtaining the mortgage for the house. The whole customer journey is great from initial requirements clarification, considering options to obtaining the best possible mortgage. Getting the mortgage settled with a bank by Independent Expat Finance as service provider means minimum effort for the customer and the shortest path to obtaining the financing needed. I can highly recommend these services.

Highly Recommend this company. I mainly dealt with Liaget and Ferry on any topics in regards to financing. Both are absolute professional, always available and very patient in explaining everything (especially documents only available in dutch). Was a pleasure working with them! I briefly dealt with Rogier on all things insurance and got an equally as good and thorough service.

I highly recommend Independent Expat Finance to everyone. They do more then advisory, you can make sure that you will get answers for your questions anytime. I could not complete my mortgage journey without help of Serge and his team. If you are planning to take out a mortgage, don’t search for anywhere else especially if you are an expat in Netherlands

Highly recommend! I have worked with them twice the first time everything went smooth even though I was out of the country. The second time the Real Estate Agency was a scammer but luckily Independent Expect Finance handled everything professionally and didn't give up the fight. All in all, they are amazing and give great financial advice.

We worked with Liaget for couple of services; from mortgage application to life insurance. His expert advice and strong follow up helped us to get all services on time in full. We were able to get our mortgage approved almost only after 1 month in Amsterdam. It was not a typical application but still he handled very carefully and professionally. Would recommend his services to others as well.
