Why Is Cottage Insurance Important
Insuring your cottage is just as important as insuring your home.
Regardless of how much time you spend at your cottage, it’s an investment worth protecting!
After all, your cottage property can experience unique risks - such as damages caused by wildlife, fallen trees, rising water, etc.
When you buy a cottage policy from Mackay Insurance, you invest in financial protection, security and peace of mind.
What Is Cottage Insurance? What Does it Cover?
Cottage insurance is a unique policy designed for secondary or vacation homes.
As a homeowner, you know that your home insurance policy covers your primary residence. This ensures your property, house, and belongings have financial protection in the case of theft, vandalism, damage, etc.
Your cottage insurance, on the other hand, is typically added to your home insurance policy as a secondary/seasonal location.
What Does a Cottage Insurance Policy Cover?
- May insure vandalism, fire and theft
- Damage from falling objects,
- Lightning, hail and windstorm damage.
With the right coverage, you can enjoy a worry-free cottage season!
