What is vacation property insurance?
Your vacation property policy will help cover the cost of damaged or lost items and protect any detached private structures like a boathouse, garage, or shed located on the property.
Why do you need it?
Vacation property insurance is especially important because it is not always occupied. We have built our business around understanding your needs and what is important for you to protect. That’s why we offer a range of coverage to customize to your needs.

A safety net for additional expenses over and above your normal living expenses while you are unable to live in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much insurance do I need?
That’s where we come in. We will gather information to determine the best coverage for your home.
How is vacation property different from home insurance?
There are a few unique properties of a vacation home that can lead to more risk. Factors like the amount of time the property is unoccupied or if it is rented out at any point can have an affect. Your Butler Byers account manager will guide and evaluate your situation and providing you the best policy for your needs.
Is my boat covered?
Theft to watercraft, including furnishings, equipment, and outboard motors, is typically excluded if the theft occurs outside your residential premises. To cover your boat and its accessories, we recommend a separate boat insurance policy.
