Here are just a few reasons why your beach hut is in safe hands with Towergate:

We cover the big risks

Beach huts are beautifully fragile in contrast to the big blue sea. We insure against tidal surges, inundation, flooding and storms too. We only ask that you help protect your hut by closing your shutters when it’s not in use.

We love beach hut associations

We reward BHA members with a lower premium and no excesses. Don’t worry though, if there is not an association in your area your excess will only be £50 and there may be other discounts available, just speak to one of the team to find out more.

Rebuilding your beach hut like new

Not only will we rebuild your hut as new, we can also include the extra costs of debris removal and demolition. You just need to make sure you include the costs of rebuilding, demolition and debris removal in your sum insured. This means that if the worst should happen you have cover in place for a total rebuild. It’s likely these numbers may change over time so be sure to check current prices at least every two years and up date us.

Flexible contents cover

We can insure wake boards, deck chairs, furnishings and other items you might keep in your hut. Just keep us up to date with the overall value you need to insure and we’ll do the rest. Just note, we can’t cover your electronic, audio or video equipment but you may find this is covered on your home insurance so it is always worth checking.

These are just some of the key features and exclusions, full details will be found in policy wordings. Show policy documents

Park Home Insurance (New Policy Holder)


got caught out by the small print. Made a claim for items stolen when our hire car was broken into. With no lockable glove compartment who on earth would put their hand bag in the boot. ? My wife pushed it under her seat before we went shopping . Not good enough, according to the small print .So be careful, very careful and read the small print or the insurance will wriggle their way out of paying you. Most disillusioned by the incident which spoilt our holiday.

On 09-Jun-2015 the supplier responded:
Thank you for taking the time to address your concerns too us. I was sorry to read that you have had a number of items stolen from your hire vehicle whilst on holiday. Unfortunately, we cannot see that you have contacted our Claims Department here in Cheltenham. I have requested for a Claims Handler to contact you directly in order to discuss this matter further.

Many thanks,
Towergate Feefo team.

The renewal Premium for 2015 was less than for 2014 which has to be very good.
Hopefully this trend will continue in 2016

How do I know if I have a beach hut or a beach chalet?

There is one big difference between a beach hut and a beach chalet, a beach chalet has a licence to be slept in over night and a beach hut does not. Your local council will be able to let you know you if you are unsure.

How do I know the rebuild value of my hut?

You don’t need to insure your hut for the price you bought it for. You just need to find out a rebuild cost from your council, a local builder or your beach hut association. Make sure you ask for demolition and removal costs too.

Do I need shutters if I have a chalet?

Chalets are usually a different type of construction to beach huts and do not need shutters over the windows for cover to be valid.

Can I pay in instalments?

If you would prefer to spread the cost of your policy you have the option of setting up a Direct Debit to pay your premium in equal monthly instalments through our preferred provider, Premium Credit Limited (PCL).

To find out more about PCL and direct debit payments, select Direct Debit.

To understand more about how PCL work together with Towergate, please read our Regulatory Information.

Where can I find more information about monthly Direct Debit?

If you want to know more about our monthly payment option, please read our dedicated page on Direct Debit.
