Which type of touring caravan insurance should I choose?
With a wide range of policies, options and add-ons available your touring caravan insurance from Shield can be adapted to suit your individual caravanning needs. We offer insurance policies that cover a wide range of caravans including single axle, twin axle, British and Continental style caravans. We even provide cover for caravans of any age, with policies starting at just £50 for residents of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Here are Shield we believe in offering high quality cover, to make sure that your touring caravan is properly protected should the worst happen. Unlike some other touring caravan insurance providers, we don't believe in penalising you with a limited choice of options. We therefore offer three types of cover:
- New for old (also known as reinstatement) This gives you cover for a like-for-like replacement caravan (or the closest available match); up to the value of the sum insured you have bought; in the event of a total loss e.g. an unrecoverable theft or irreparable accident.
- Market value (also known as indemnity) Your touring caravan insurance will cover the cost of an equivalent caravan, taking account of its age and condition.
- Agreed value (also known as guaranteed value) Assuming you are in possession of a receipt or proof of purchase from a recognised UK dealer that is less than 7 years old, we can agree to insure it for the amount shown in your Evidence of Insurance (provided the sum insured is no more than the price you paid for the touring caravan).
