The Premiums charged by Flood Re to insurers vary by the Council Tax band of the property. Flood claims on the ceded policy come with a fixed excess of £250 per claim. The table below provides details of the 2019/20 inward reinsurance premiums for properties ceded to the Flood Re scheme, which from 1st January 2019 were reduced for the majority of bands:

If the insurance policy is in your name and meets our criteria, then Flood Re should help your holiday home. It has to be in a Council Tax band, built prior to January 2009, and used for residential purposes. The policyholder or their immediate family must live in the home for some or all of the time, or the home must be unoccupied.
If you have a static caravan and it has a Council Tax band, then your caravan will qualify for Flood Re. But if your caravan is part of a commercial caravan park and let out as a business, it will not be included. Towing caravans are covered either under your motor insurance or a separate caravan policy. They’re excluded from Flood Re.
If there’s evidence the property was built and used as a private residence before 2009, then it may do. Use our Flood Re Tool to learn more.
No. Flood Re will only reimburse insurers for damage done to contents that were in the property at the time of flooding.
In some cases yes. If the insurer is signed up to our Build Back Better scheme homeowners may be able to install Property Flood Resilience measures up to the value of £10,000 when repairing their home after a flood.
