What is Denmark holiday home insurance?
Denmark holiday home insurance is like the policy you’ll find attached to your primary residence. The main difference is that your UK home is occupied for most of the year, while properties abroad remain unoccupied for long periods. As such, there are additional risks that need mitigating against. These include vandalism, theft, and natural disasters.
It could be weeks or months before you uncover damage to your second property. So, buying suitable insurance can ensure you’ll be protected from the financial losses that can arise from such disasters when you’re not there.
What does holiday home insurance in Denmark cover?
In short, it can help to financially protect you from the risks posed to your property.
Here at Intasure, we combine buildings and contents insurance into one package. This can offer cover for your home’s structure and its contents. We also offer public liability insurance to help protect you against the risks of renting your property to paying guests. You can also benefit from the following forms of cover: loss of rent cover, emergency travel cost and alternative accommodation cover.
Buildings and Contents Insurance
Buildings and contents insurance can act as a safety net for your finances when the property is damaged, or something happens to your possessions inside. It covers*:
- Damage to buildings or contents due to natural disasters, such as floods, fires, avalanches, earthquakes, etc.
- Escaped water, sewage, or oil from household appliances, such as washing machines or dishwashers.
- Loss or damage caused by electrical power surges.
- Cover for theft, which can be extended to cover guests occupying the property.
- Protection against damages during both short and long term lets.
- Accidental damage cover items such as fixed glass, sanitary fixtures, etc.
- Cover for extra facilities, such as outbuildings, saunas, and swimming pools.
*Please refer to your policy details.
Public Liability Cover
Following a claim, public liability cover can protect against the various risks of renting your property out to holidaymakers. Such issues include accidental damage, theft, loss, injury or illness. You’ll be pleased to hear that we offer public liability protection up to £5 million — which can help to keep your finances safe in the event of a disaster.
Emergency Travel Costs Cover
Suppose your property suffers damage or loss while you’re in the UK — you’ll want to return to your second home as soon as possible. That’s where, after an insured claim, emergency travel costs can help. If, for example, your second home is burgled or severe damage occurs following a burst pipe, we’ll pay the travel costs you incur in getting to Denmark. And if your property isn’t in a suitable state to stay in, we can also pay for alternative accommodation.
Loss of Rent Cover
If your second property is uninhabitable following a claim, loss of rent covers the booking income you would have received from paying guests. Please be mindful that to raise a successful claim, you will need to prove that confirmed bookings are cancelled. It can ensure you reap the rewards of a pre-panned rental schedule while fixing the issue at hand.
Planning to spend time away from your holiday home? No problem. Choose Intasure, and you’ll have protection whether you are at the property or not. This includes cover for up to 60 days when there is escaped metered water or oil.
Alternative Accommodation Cover
If your property is damaged and you can’t stay there, we can reimburse you for temporary alternative accommodation for you and your family.
How much does holiday home insurance in Denmark cost?

- The age and condition of your property – a modern home that requires little renovation typically incurs lower insurance costs.
