Protect Your Assets

Is your insurance cover up to the job...

protect your assests 1

With so much of its notorious jargon and fine print to review, insurance can be a minefield of confusion for holiday park owners. But beware. Uncertainty over coverage can come at a heavy cost – especially if oversights are only spotted after events occur. “Park owners should seek out specialist brokers that offer cover specifically designed and tailored to suit the diversity of the parks industry,” advises of Compass Insurance. “Adequate cover will address both common, everyday losses and the more substantial losses that can be sustained in the event of a major disaster.” According to Compass, the most common holiday park claims involve:

• Tripping and slipping incidents
• Use of playground and activity equipment
• Material damage to third party property
• Injuries to employees
• Damage to holiday home stock
• Damage to communal buildings.
• Flooding
