Protection for your home away from home
Coverage for your seasonal property
Your cottage or holiday property is a place of comfort where you and your family can get away, unwind and enjoy life. You’ve spent a lot of time making it the perfect home away from home. Let us help you get the coverage you need.
What seasonal dwelling insurance covers
Depending on your coverage needs, you have the freedom to choose between a Basic Homeowner Policy or a Residential Fire Policy.*
A Basic Homeowner policy is generally purchased when higher insurance limits are needed.
If your seasonal property is in Quebec, you will need to take out a secondary homeowner policy. You can choose a Basic, Elite, VIP or Residential Fire Policy that is active during the winter months.
Basic seasonal house policy coverage (excluding Quebec)
A basic characteristic of your seasonal home insurance policy is dwelling protection. This covers the home in which you live, as well as other structures that are attached to it, such as a garage or a deck. Keep in mind that this is restricted to named perils only.
Personal Property (Contents)
Contents located in the seasonal property are covered. However, coverage is restricted to losses sustained as a result of a named peril (e.g. fire, wind or smoke).
Additional Living Expenses
If you need to move out while repairs are being made, or if an insured peril makes your dwelling unfit for occupancy, Allstate will cover increases in living expenses, like moving expenses. Payment will be made for your relocation and during the reasonable time it takes to repair the dwelling.
This is an extension of your home, tenant or condo policy. You are protected if your are held liable for injury and death to someone on your property.
Your basic seasonal property policy would cover perils such as water damage and escape, vandalism, falling objects, glass, and theft.
Residential fire policy coverage
One of the characteristics of your residential fire policy is dwelling protection. This covers the home in which you live, as well as other structures that are attached to it, such as a garage or a deck. However, this is restricted to named perils only.
Detached Private Structures
Your residential fire policy coverage also extends to other structures that are on your property but are separate from your home, like a detached garage, tool shed or fence. This coverage is also restricted to named perils only.
You are protected if you are held liable for injury or death to someone on your property. This coverage is an extension of your existing tenant, home or condo policy.
