Why do I need caravan insurance?

Although it’s not compulsory by law to have insurance to keep or use a touring caravan in the UK, even the most careful owner can encounter an unexpected accident, often through no fault of their own, leaving them exposed to substantial repair or replacement costs and emotional distress.

Hardy caravanners are used to braving the changeable British weather, but floods, high winds, storms and heavy snowfall can cause significant and lasting damage to your caravan. The caravanning community is also especially vulnerable to theft, with most caravans containing expensive equipment and fittings. Most caravan insurance claims relating to road accidents are the result of snaking and crashing, or instances where caravans have become detached from the towing vehicle.

Did you know that 1 in 20 caravanners found cause to claim on their insurance policy? The average caravan claims cost is equal to 16 times the annual insurance premium, so taking out quality cover is a cost effective way to protect your investment.

What to look for in a caravan insurance policy

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. Only specialist insurers fully understand how caravanners use their product, and tailor their policies to suit such use. When buying insurance for your caravan, be sure to check the basis of cover and watch out for hidden policy excesses.

It’s important to check you have the appropriate cover in place, as your car insurance will not cover the cost of repairing or replacing your caravan and its contents. It’s illegal to tow a caravan in some European countries unless you have bought specific insurance, so having the flexibility to adjust the continental cover, personal accident and public liability to suit your needs is also important. Whether you have a caravan, touring caravan, static caravan or even a folding caravan, Shield can help find you the best possible insurance policy to meet your needs.
