Holiday home insurance specialist, Intasure, has introduced a new policy for people who have their main residences in the UK but are absent for long periods.
The company, which provides policy documents in English and operates a UK based English-speaking support team, also provides cover for holiday homes across a number of European countries and further afield, in Thailand and the United Arab Emirates.
The firm says its policies are designed around the needs of property owners and can include locally tailored cover.
The new policy for UK-domiciled holiday homeowners is being promoted by JML insurance, which points out that increasing numbers of British second homeowners are retired and can therefore spend long periods away from their main residences.
Unlike most home insurance policies, the Intasure product contains no restrictions on leaving a UK property unoccupied beyond the standard 30 days.
It can also provide cover if a property is let during the owner’s absence.
According to JML insurance, Intasure policies are underwritten by Lloyds of London and may also be suitable for properties of non standard construction.
