If your main home is insured with Hiscox, we can provide insurance for your second home too. Both properties will be on the same policy so you'll just have one document to file and one premium to pay. And most aspects of the policy will apply to both properties, so if you’ve added legal expenses insurance to your main policy it’ll also apply to your second home. Things like home emergency cover can be applied to each property individually.

Both properties will benefit from our unlimited cover

To help make sure you're never underinsured, we'll provide both properties with unlimited cover. So whatever the value of your loss, you can be confident you're protected. You only need to list any items, pairs or sets worth £15,000 or more and give us a total value for any jewellery, art and collections.

For certain claims there's a maximum amount we'd pay, including claims for things like tracing and repairing a leak. However, the cover we provide is still higher than most other home insurance policies. Visit our cover details page to learn more.
