As with all rules, there are always a few exceptions. Here are ours:
If you need to claim for malicious or water damage a £50 excess applies unless you are a Beach Hut Association member. In which case, you won't need to pay any excess at all.
Unfortunately, we can't cover gradual deterioration, wear and tear or electrical/mechanical breakdown
To give you the best chance of deterring break ins, all windows and openings must be covered by shutters and secured, and all doors securely locked when the property is not in use
We also require all utilities (water, electricity and gas) serving the property to be turned off when the property is left unoccupied.
These are just some of the key exclusions/limitations, full details will be found in policy wordings.
There is no fixed amount. It depends on the size and location of your hut along with the estimated cost to rebuild it. You also need to take into consideration the cost of fixtures and fittings - this is where our experience can help you so please get in touch.
Because Towergate beach hut & chalet insurance is not just an adapted house insurance policy, the third party liability cover is specific to owning a beach hut. The £5m will be more than adequate for most owners but if you have any concerns just speak to our team on 0844 346 0570.
Yes, if you are a member of an Association, and you can confirm your membership number to us, you could benefit from a reduced premium and zero policy excess.
In our experience, claims on beach huts and chalets are usually for total losses, therefore the severity of claims is high. Insurance premiums are based on risk and, given the geographical location and occupancy of most beach huts, the frequency of claims is high.
Yes, just tell us the amount you want to insure for and we can cover items such as generators, fridges, kettles, crockery, furnishings and beach apparel. Please note that items such as TV's, video's, hi-fi's, jewellery, computers, mobile phones and cash are not covered.
Yes. We can cover your watercraft for an additional charge. We will not cover damage and third party liability whilst in use, however we may be able to provide a separate watercraft policy to suit your needs.
