Villa insurance

Post by ceh » Sat Oct 26, 2019 4:43 pm

I'm interested in recommendations for villa building and contents insurance as mine seems to have jumped up in price over the last few years, and unlike most other types of insurance, I've foolishly stick with the same company for 10 years. Time to change!

Hi. We insure ours through https://www.schofields.ltd.uk/holiday-h ... -portugal/. Always found them to be competitive and the cover looks quite broad.

I insure through Medal with Hiscox which used to be UK based but set up a Luxembourg based subsidiary in anticipation of Brexit and my policy is with that subsidiary. Cover is good and prices have not risen much in the 15 years I have been with them. More importantly they settled my claims for burglary loss and theft of a lawnmower quickly and without fuss.

Many thanks I will follow these up. It's not due for a couple of months but want to be prepared.

Thanks for the recommendations....I sorted out the villa insurance last week and have gone with Schofields - they were just over £250 compared to my renewal quote from Intasure of just over £500 😀
