UK Holiday Homes

if you are an owner of a Second Home or a Holiday Home in the UK, R K Shipman can give you peace of mind by finding a policy that suits your needs.  R K Shipman use leading insurers such as Plum, Midas and Vasek for your UK Holiday Home Insurance.  Our holiday home insurance policy is designed for apartments, flats, cottages or chalets and if your holiday home or second home is abroad we can cover that through our specialist product below.

Whether the home is used by yourself, family, or it is commercially let, there will be specialist insurance requirements needed as there is more of a risk involved compared to insuring your main residence.

R K Shipman has the specific insurance knowledge that will cover the special requirements when insuring a UK Holiday Home or a Second Home.  All of our Holiday Home policies include legal helpline and keycare cover as well as the following key features (key features depend on which insurance policy you take-up):

  • Malicious damage or terrorism
  • Collision with the property by aircraft, animals or vehicles
  • Falling trees or branches, lamp posts or telegraph poles
  • Breakage or collapse of satellite television receiving equipment or television and radio aerials
  • Subsidence, landslip or ground heave of the site on which the property stands.
