About Shield

Shield Total Insurance (formally known as Shield Direct) was established in February 1997 to become one of the first specialist caravan insurance and motorhome insurance intermediaries in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

In March 2005 we re-branded as Shield Total Insurance and our portfolio of products expanded from three to eight (to include pet insurance), as we moved into providing caravan insurance online for the first time - thereby increasing our presence significantly in the caravan and mobile leisure vehicle insurance sector.

At Shield Total Insurance, we take a lighter, less 'grey' attitude to specialist insurance, both in our tone and presentation, treating customers with respect and courtesy in an informal but professional manner.

Our key objectives include:


We are members of the Institute of Customer Service - an independent, professional membership body for customer service.

With our ever increasing outdoor-leisure insurance product range, we are now one of the fastest growing providers of static caravan insurance, residential park home insurance and leisure home insurance in the UK (including holiday lodge insurance and log cabin insurance).

More recently, we have added folding camper insurance, folding caravan insurance, trailer tent insurance and tent insurance to meet the increasing demand from customers who enjoy the great outdoor lifestyle.

Finally, in these economic times, we recognise the importance of providing a wide range of product cover options and delivering great value. With this in mind, our starting prices are amongst the cheapest leisure insurance premiums currently available today:


Shield Total Insurance - the one-stop shop for all outdoor leisure insurance needs.

Your insurance, your way!
