Britain’s most destructive holiday letters users holiday in Cumbria and Cornwall, that’s according to a survey carried out by Phil Scofield of Schofield’s Holiday Home Insurance.
The Lake District, it seems, attracts the most damage claims from holiday lets in the country, with travelers to Cornwall next in line for this dubious honour.
Recent claims data released by Schofields, which is based on analysis of holiday-let insurance claims for the past 12 months to give a picture of regional
insurance claims trends.
The data focused specifically on damage caused by holiday guests finding that 15 per cent of all claims came from Cumbria, while 12.5 per cent were from Cornwall.
Damage to electrical items came top of the list at 26 per cent, whilst wrecked furni¬ture accounted for 18 per cent of damage claims, with bathroom units and sink damage at 15 per cent.
The Isle of Wight is the area of the country which attracts the most careful of holiday makers (1 per cent of claims), followed Dorset at 4 per cent and Norfolk at 5 per cent.
These are claims resulting from damage caused which is in excess of the rental deposit. It suggests that people are not respecting the property they are staying in, Phil Schofield has indicated.
