GEICO Specialty Homeowners Insurance FAQ

What types of coverage does GEICO Specialty Homeowners Insurance offer?

GEICO has riders for the following types of home insurance coverage:

Specialty Homeowner Insurance Coverage Options
Supported Options Unsupported Options
  • Landlord/Rental Properties
  • Older/Lower-value Homes
  • Seasonal or Vacation Homes
  • Vacant Homes
  • Log Homes
  • Applicants with poor credit
  • Off the Grid Homes

Does GEICO insure log homes?

GEICO does offer specialized coverage for log homes.

Many insurance carriers will not cover log homes because of their location and the inherent dangers of an all-wooden structure.

Does GEICO insure older homes?

GEICO does consider older homes when offering specialty dwelling insurance.

Not all home insurance companies will support older homes. That is because they often pose a higher risk than regular homes. For instance, they may have outdated plumbing and wiring, a storm-sensitive roof, or be made of rare materials.

Does GEICO cover seasonal or vacation homes?

GEICO does not offer a specific rider for seasonal or vacation homes.

Like any home, seasonal or vacation home needs insurance. But because the risks are different, the coverage might cost more than your primary homeowners insurance policy, and not all carriers offer it.

Does GEICO insure off the grid homes?

GEICO does not offer a specific rider for seasonal or vacation homes.

Living off the grid is becoming increasingly popular for homeowners, but not for insurance carriers. Properties that don't have heat or water and use wood fireplaces or coal stoves for cooking can be a challenge to insure.
