About the policy

Your leisure home is special. It’s where you make family memories and enjoy good times with the people you love, as well as being a possible source of income should you let it out. So it’s therefore important to protect it with flexible, cost-effective cover from a trusted insurer.

As specialists in leisure home insurance, we’ve designed our own product to include the most popular features. Backed by our partner UKG, an A+ rated insurer2, you can be certain your leisure home is in safe hands.

1 16% of our customers paid less than £200. 61% of customers paid less than £250. Data from February 2019.

2 An A+ insurer is independently assessed as financially stable with the means to pay should you have a claim.

What does our leisure home insurance cover?

With our flexible cover, your leisure home is protected when you lend it out, leave it empty, rent it (for domestic use), or enjoy it yourself with family and friends.

When choosing a policy, it’s important to know what’s included and excluded. Our summary below covers key information about our product. No policy protects you against every scenario and it’s best to read our policy documents to understand the conditions and exclusions that apply. Should you have a request that doesn’t quite fit the mould, simply call us and we’ll be happy to help.

Whether you call us or complete your purchase online, you’ll be asked about ‘sums insured’. This is simply the value of your leisure home and contents combined. If you don’t know, speak with one of our UK based team and we’ll ensure you don’t pay for more protection than you need.
