Shield Total Insurance Receives 10th Consecutive Defaqto 5 Star Rating

Written by Grant Ellis on 4th February 2022

We are delighted to announce that our Touring Caravan Insurance product, has received a Defaqto 5 Star Rating for the 10th consecutive year.  This 5 Star Rating demonstrates that Shield Total Touring Caravan Insurance is one of the highest quality offerings on the market when rated by Dafaqto.

We are committed to delivering high quality products to our customers, so that they have peace of mind when enjoying their travels.  For the past 10 years, we have been providing our customers with a Defatqo 5 Star rated Touring Caravan product, Which they deem to be a product that has a comprehensive level of features and benefits.

What is Defaqto?

Defaqto is an entirely independent organisation, its unbiased product information, provided as Star Ratings, helps consumers, financial institutions and financial advisers make better informed decisions on whether the company they’re buying a service from is any good. A Defaqto rating is not based solely on price, focusing much more on the overall quality of the product.

As you’d probably guess, a five star rating is the best score and it shows that the product with that rating is a comprehensive one.

Shield Total Insurance is a brand owned by Kingfisher Insurance Services.

Stuart Craig, Head of Leisure at Kingfisher Insurance, comments: “We are very proud of our Touring Caravan insurance product and the level of cover it provides.  The ratings from Defaqto mean a lot to our product development team who have worked very hard to continue to provide some of the highest quality cover in the market. But even more important than that, it makes it easier for customers to choose their insurance cover and identify products that provide the level of cover required.”

Why Choose a 5 Star Rated product?

It’s all too easy to be lured in by a low-price tag, but if it sounds too good to be true then it probably is. When it comes to caravan insurance, choosing a specialist provider like Shield Total Insurance could save you a lot of hassle further down the line. Specialist caravan insurers fully understand how caravanners use their product, and therefore tailor their policies to suit such use – so it’s no surprise that our product is Defaqto 5 Star rated.

  • Is the basis of cover the same – are you comparing like with like? If caravan insurance strikes you as cheap, or there is a significant difference in premium between one provider and the other, this should set alarm bells ringing
  • Is the excess the same? Insurance companies – particularly those with online propositions – often drive down the price by giving customers a larger excess in the event of a claim. With Shield’s fully flexible cover, we believe that decision should rest with the consumer
  • Are you being adequately rewarded – both in terms of price and excess – for taking every possible measure to protect your caravan from accident or theft?

In our opinion, Defaqto looks at all of these issues to make the buying decision easier for the consumer. 5 Stars means exactly that!
