Our online quotation system provides quick quotes but first of all here are a few of the general sections in a caravan insurance policy.
Loss or damage to the caravan.
The insurance section under which most claims are made. There are usually very few exclusions e.g. wear and tear, gradually operating cause. It should be noted that in insurance the word ' caravan ' is usually extended to include fixture and fitting that come with the caravan.
Personal effects are those articles that are placed in the caravan for your use. Please note that:-
Whilst the caravan is being towed on the road the liability cover under a motor insurance policy extends to damage caused by the caravan e.g. reversing into another vehicle. When the caravan is detached then this insurance would not apply and the cover provided under the specialist caravan insurance policy then takes over. There is a policy limit e.g. £1,000,000 or £2,000,000 (some site owners stipulate a high limit which reduces the number of policies available and encourages owners to take out their insurance.)
Many insurance policies allow you to take the caravan abroad - be careful if there are limitations as to the number of days allowed.
Hire of alternative accommodation
Insures your costs if your caravan become uninhabitable.
Insures legal expenses arising out of use of the caravan only.
Most caravan insurance policies have an excess applying on the material damage sections - this is typically £50.00 or £75.00
On taking out a policy for a touring caravan make sure you understand the requirements if it is left unattended. Some exclude all cover immediately unless a hitch lock/ proprietary lock is fitted others allow two hours (i.e. at service areas on motorways)
Insurance is cheaper as static caravans are normally kept on site and not moved on the road (typically 40-50% reduction).
