What types of coverage does Travelers Specialty Homeowners Insurance offer?
Travelers has riders for the following types of home insurance coverage:
Does Travelers insure log homes?No, Travelers does not have a log home rider as part of its specialty homeowners insurance policies.
Many insurance carriers will not cover log homes because of their location and the inherent dangers of an all-wooden structure.
Does Travelers insure older homes?No, Travelers does not offer a specific rider for older homes. However, it may consider older homes on a case-by-case. So, it might be worth visiting their site and checking with an agent.
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 For instance, they may have outdated plumbing and wiring, a storm-sensitive roof, or be made of rare materials.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 Travelers cover seasonal or vacation homes?Travelers 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 Travelers insure off the grid homes?Travelers 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.
