Help when on foreign soil

Many people have holiday homes or time shares abroad which is great when everything is running smoothly but what happens when you have a problem?


If you speak the language and are well connected with local tradesmen then you are probably fine when an emergency raises its head. However, if you aren't in that position you are going to need some assistance.

That is why many insurers are offering overseas assist on home insurance policies, that way you get the same efficient service whilst abroad as you would at home. It applies to guests using your holiday home too giving them 24 hour back up.

Even in the midst of a crisis it makes life a lot easier if you can communicate and get things sorted out.

Adequate safety and security measures are also advisable for holiday homes. These properties are left unattended for large amounts of time with lots of valuables inside. They are easy targets as burglars know they are empty and won't be disturbed if they break in. Comprehensive insurance is also recommended especially if there are high value items kept there.
