Holiday Home Insurance UK – InsuraHome

Holiday homes, by their very nature, can often be left empty for long periods of time so you need UK Holiday Home Insurance that takes this into account and is suitable to protect your holiday home. A ‘standard’ home insurance may not be sufficient to cover your holiday home as it is not your main residence.

Similarly, if you rent out your holiday home in the UK, you need a Holiday Home Insurance policy that is flexible enough for you to be covered while there are paying guests at the house. You also need to think about how your contents might be treated – visitors to your holiday home might not be as careful or considerate with your belongings as you are!

Obtaining suitable Home Insurance for your Holiday Home is just as vital as the cover you put in place for your main residence. At InsuraHome Home Insurance, we are experts in Providing an extensive Holiday Home Insurance solution for those wanting Home Insurance for their Holiday Home. Whether your property is due to be empty for 30 days, 60 days or even intermittently between holiday lets, we can help protect your wallet and your peace of mind from the unforeseen and unexpected for both the building and its contents.

What is Holiday Home Insurance UK?

Holiday Home Insurance UK covers the risks you face when owning a second property that isn’t your main residence. In some cases, even your mortgage provider may require you to have specialist cover in place because Holiday Homes can be more susceptible to burglary, Vandalism and damage from paying guests as well as extensive damage from other mishaps due to not being present in the property on a daily basis.

Holiday Home Insurance is different from a ‘standard’ home insurance policy because it specifically covers the risks associated with owning a second property or holiday home. InsuraHome Home Insurance can help provide cover for you and your Holiday Home from a number of perils such as fire, subsidence, earthquakes and may be able to offer protection where others may have declined in the past.

Holiday Home Insurance UK –  FAQs

Can you get insurance for a Second Home?

The simple answer is yes you can get insurance for a holiday home. Holiday Home Insurance UK covers you when your property is empty for longer than your standard home insurance policy will allow and will also offer protection should you decide to offer short term holiday lets, including Air Bnb.

What counts as a Holiday Home?

A Holiday Home is one that you own but is not your permanent residence. Most ‘standard’ home insurance policies will not cover your property for risks associated with a holiday home, such as  if it is left unoccupied for longer than 30-60 days because of the increased risk of theft, vandalism, a burst pipe being undiscovered and more. Therefore, there are specialised non-standard Holiday Home Insurance UK policies available on the market designed to cover these risks and other specific to owning a holiday home. 

How much does Holiday Home insurance cost?

The cost of a Holiday Home Insurance UK policy will vary depending on many factors such as the value of the property, condition of the property as well as the location and security of the property as if the property is in an area with a high crime rate then the price of cover is likely to increase. In general, Holiday Home Insurance UK will cost more than a standard home insurance policy in terms cost per day of cover due to the additional risks associated with owning a holiday home. 

How do I prepare my Holiday Home for winter?

Many things could potentially go wrong with your property such as burst frozen pipes, flooding, loss of heating, leaky roof and other unexpected surprises.
