What is Cyprus holiday home insurance?
Cyprus holiday home insurance provides cover for second properties across the Mediterranean island. The policy protects you against risks of damage and loss whether you’re occupying your property or not. One such example is damage arising from natural disasters. Given that Cyprus has experienced extreme weather in recent years, you’d be wise to consider holiday home insurance carefully.
We offer cover for properties that are both occupied and not. For insured claims, we also provide public liability insurance of up to £5 million, which could prove invaluable should a guest raise a claim for compensation against you.
