Yurt Insurance – Why You Need A Specialist Insurance Policy
You’ve invested in buying or maybe building your yurt and whether you are keeping it to enjoy with friends and family or letting it out as a glamping site it is important to ensure you have the appropriate insurance in place.
Why you need a specialist insurance provider
Yurts are not necessarily covered by your home buildings insurance, as many insurers do not consider them to be a general outbuilding – canvas and timber frames can mean that may insurers are not keen to insure the. Whether your yurt is old or brand new and whether it is located in your garden or on some land you own or rent, The Tourist Trail Insurance can help you get the right insurance.
What to consider when insuring your yurt?
The first thing to consider is how much your yurt cost to buy – this is the building sum insured and we will use it to start to work out a price for your insurance. Don’t forget to include the yurt structure itself, any linings and lighting and then ancillaries such a hot tub, shower or toilet that might form part of, or be located next to your yurt.
Next, consider the value of the contents inside your yurt – what do you keep inside your yurt? – include the value of any beds, sofas, cooking equipment etc.
Our policy is flexible and allows you to cover additional items such as awnings, BBQs, gas bottles, firepits and outdoor furniture, whilst it is being used or being stored.
In addition to the structure and contents, you also need to consider Public Liability insurance as well, just in case something goes wrong or an accident occurs!
Do you let out your yurt?
If you let out your yurt as a business venture then it is important to have the appropriate insurance in place – your local council may also insist on minimum levels of cover. If your yurt is part of a wider glamping or camping business then talk to us about arranging cover for other accommodation including pods, lodges, yurts and tents. We can also insure any bikes, kayaks or canoes you may rent out as part of your business.
Our insurance policies can extend to cover Public Liability, Employers Liability if you have employees and financial loss from business interruption – so if you have to close your site due to fire, flood or storm you may be covered.
How much does it cost to your yurt?
The cost of your insuring your yurt will vary depending on a number of things – the value of your yurt, the value of your contents and so on. Prices start from just £8 a month.
