Holiday home insurance

Specialist home insurance for holiday property and Second Homes in the UK

If you own a second home or holiday home in the UK then you will need a form of holiday home insurance. Whether you just use the property occasionally yourself, or with family and friends, or you let your property out on a week to week basis then a comprehensive cover policy is the best option to protect your holiday home.

Obtaining suitable house insurance for a holiday cottage or second home can be difficult and expensive due to the possibility of the property being unoccupied for long periods of time, plus there is a risk of legal action from injured guests.

If you do obtain holiday home insurance cover you will probably find that most holiday home insurance require the owner to comply with security requirements. For example: your holiday home property has to be checked weekly, must not be uninhabited for more than 30 consecutive days and the heating must be drained when left unoccupied.

Most owners of holiday homes and second homes only use their property occasionally, and such requirements are inconvenient. To accommodate this some holiday home insurance companies will have a tailored a second home insurance policy that does not restrict cover when your house is unoccupied and includes specialist cover for holiday letting.
