French Coast Villas Ltd (trading as Susan Paradise Villas and Brittany Travel) require as part of their booking conditions that all passengers are adequately insured for villa rental holidays. Owners are required to insure their properties for holiday rentals which covers them for problems with the property whilst they are not in residence. This insurance does not cover them for damage by their customers whilst on holiday. To protect our owners and yourselves we require all of our customers to be insured for ‘personal liability’. This element is included in all full travel insurance policies, but may not be included in some free policies that are sometimes included with a Credit Card.
The market has become so competitive that we have decided not to offer policies ourselves but to guide customers to a suitable insurance comparison website. UK customers will be familier with Compare the Market www.comparethemarket.com/travel-insurance/ and GoCompare www.gocompare.com/travel-insurance/ We have no relationship with either of these sites and customers are free to purchase insurance from any insurer, but please do check that the policy offers suitable cover.
