There are just a couple of things to be aware of
Home buildings and contents policies usually contain a clause which requires the property to be continuously occupied. They know of course, that most people go to work, go shopping and go off on holiday. That’s why the clause will usually state that the property must not be left unoccupied for more than 30 consecutive days.
So, if you’re embarking on a lengthy adventure for longer than this, you’ll need to let your insurer know as your standard policy won’t cover you. For most people, heading off on a short break, this won’t apply and you’re free to turn your attention to the other things!
No one wants to come back from holiday and find they’ve been burgled so it’s important that you take the necessary precautions before you leave. From an insurance point of view, you do have an obligation to take reasonable care and not to make things easy for a thief.
That means installing security systems, locking your doors and windows, not leaving a spare key where they might find it and be able to enter the house, and not leaving valuables on display. Common sense really.
