Overseas home insurance product made available on aggregator.

Confused.com has launched a new overseas home insurance service, through Hiscox Insurance.

The facility allows customers to insure their holiday homes. In a statement Confused.com said that the move would address the difficulty of translating foreign policy documents and negotiating any legal obstacles that may arise during the purchase of a property.

Carlton Hood, chief executive at Confused.com, said: “Our overseas insurance service will allow our home insurance customers to insure their holiday homes abroad, without the worry of language barriers or alien property laws which can make maintaining a property in the sun extremely stressful.

“Confused.com is committed to providing a first-class service and the addition of the overseas home insurance facility strengthens our position as the only aggregator to offer this unique service."

He added: "The beauty of our new offering is that the consumer can now purchase insurance for their holiday homes from a UK broker, without any of the hassle of buying locally in a foreign language.”
