What is Holiday Home Insurance?

It goes without saying that having the correct cover for your holiday home is essential, whether it’s in the UK or overseas, a sprawling villa or a country gite, it still deserves the same quality of policy and service.

Home abroad insurance, which you may have instead seen referred to as holiday home insurance, is a type of insurance coverage designed to protect properties that are used as holiday homes or secondary residences. It provides financial protection for the property and its contents when it is not the policyholder's primary residence.

Typical insurers cover policyholders for the following:

  • Buildings and contents including swimming pools and outbuildings
  • Theft and attempted theft whilst your holiday home is unoccupied
  • Loss of rent if your holiday home cannot be rented out
  • Your legal liabilities
  • Emergency travel costs to travel to your holiday home if there is damage

Be aware though that some insurer’s policies have exclusions or don’t facilitate particular upgrades or add-ons, potentially leaving your holiday home at risk. Speak to us today and we can help you find a policy that suits what you’re looking for from holiday home insurance.
