The coverage can be added to a wide range of insurance products including homeowners, condos, rental properties, seasonal properties and secondary properties.

Most insurers offer a variation of this product. Pricing and availability are based on your location. With variations in the product, it is important to speak with your broker to ensure you have the appropriate coverage.
