Most people that own a holiday home are doing so for investment purposes and to have that bolt hole in the sun, so making sure you have the right cover levels will give you peace of mind. That said a holiday home insurance policy is different to a normal home insurance product

Can’t I just buy a normal home buildings and contents insurance product?

There are differences between normal owner-occupied home insurance and that for holiday home insurance. One of these differences includes legal liability cover for employees. While you may not feel that you have employees in your second home, you could have a cleaner, or a management company that looks after your property.
