Single person discount FAQs
- My partner works away all week and only comes back home for holidays. Can I have a Single Person Discount?
No. A person's home is regarded as 'where they would normally live were it not for their work commitments' even if the majority of their time is spent elsewhere.
- I have a holiday home and I am the sole owner. Can I have a Single Person Discount?
No. Single Person Discount can only be granted if someone over the age of 18 is occupying the property as their main home.
