UK Weather-Related Insurance Claims Reach Record £573m

Storms and heavy rain led to a surge in UK weather-related home insurance claims in the UK last year, reaching a record £573 million. This amount was £150 million higher than in 2022.

The surge was propelled by storms such as Babet, Ciaran, and Debi, which resulted in extensive damage including storm damage and other incidents such as burst pipes due to freezing temperatures. Consequently, in 2023, the average payout increased to £5,000, compared to £3,000 in 2022.

The trend appears to continue in 2024, with wet weather and winter storms.
