Questions about buying cabin insurance?

Have you had an accident or damage?

How much does cabin insurance cost?

We will calculate the price of cabin insurance for you. By filling out some information about your holiday home, we can give you a price and recommend the insurance that’s suitable for your cabin.

Among other things, we base the price and recommendation on the cabin’s age, size, whether it has plumbing and electricity installed, and whether you have any other buildings on the land that you want to insure. The kind of cover you want also affects how much the insurance will cost you.

What does cabin insurance cover?

The insurance covers the building and its fixtures and fittings. The insurance can be extended to include a garage, shed, annex, boat house and more. Remember to report any changes and extensions to the cabin to make sure you are properly insured.

When you insure a cabin, you can choose between good basic cover and fully comprehensive. We often recommend full cover for newer cabins.


To insure yourself against visits from pests, choose fully comprehensive Insurance. This will ensure you get help combating mice and other pests that spoil your idyllic cabin life.

Fungus, rot and insect damage

Many cabins are damaged by fungus and rot. It can therefore be worth insuring your holiday home against this. Then we’ll also help you if your cabin is attacked by wood-destroying insects. This cover is an optional add-on.

The things in your holiday home need to have their own insurance. Combine cabin and contents insurance at Fremtind and settlement will be easier should anything happen.

Contents insurance for cabins

You need to have separate contents insurance for your cabin, in addition to cabin insurance and the contents insurance you have at home. The cabin insurance thus covers the building and the fixtures and fittings. To get compensation for the household contents of the cabin, such as the furniture and sports equipment, you therefore need separate contents insurance.

It’s a good idea to have the cabin insurance and the cabin’s contents insurance with the same company. You only pay one excess and settlement is easier should your cabin be subject to damage.
