AA Insurance are asking all owners of holiday homes to make sure their insurance polices cover items that are left there while the property is empty.
The summer months see many people heading off to their second homes, taking a break from the daily grind. However AA Insurance want them to just think about what they may be leaving at the property and to ensure they have adequate home insurance cover in place. Their data suggests more than 10 percent of people do not know if it is adequate or not.
A spokesman from AA Insurance also wanted to remind people to take basic security precautions during the warmer weather. These include closing and locking windows when the property is empty, locking front doors if people are in the back garden and so on.
