Touring Caravan Security Devices

With such a wide variety of security products available, it is no wonder that today’s touring caravan owners find it difficult to choose the best devices that are going to make a meaningful difference to their Touring Caravan Insurance premium.

Each of the following security devices will attract an insurance premium discount if fitted and used correctly. Some will even reduce your excess to zero!

AL-KO Secure Wheel Lock

Credited as one of the most significant anti-theft measures of the last decade, the AL-KO Secure has been available as a standard fitment to many caravans since 2006. Fitting this device removes the need for you to employ any other form of wheel clamp.

Please note: This device attracts our zero excess benefit.


A tracking system that is specifically designed for caravans, the HAL-Locate tracking system uses advanced antenna technology and a super sensitive GPS receiver. It carries Sold Secure and Thatcham approval.

Please note: This device attracts our zero excess benefit.

SAS Diamond Wheel Lock

Another wheel lock but this time designed for use with BPW chassis as commonly used by Explorer / Elddis caravans from 2004 onwards. Working in a similar fashion to the more widespread AL-KO unit, it is easy to fit, effective and provides a strong visible deterrent too.

Fitting this device removes the need for you to employ any other form of wheel clamp.

Tracking Devices

There are many different tracking devices on the market, those with and without monitoring (some times referred to as Active or ProActive).

They use Global Positioning Systems or GPS and mobile phone systems GSM and sometimes a combination of both technologies to keep your caravan secure. There is much debate about the relative merits of these systems but the fact remains that they are all likely to improve your chances of recovering your caravan in the event of a theft and we are prepared to offer a touring caravan insurance discount for all of these listed.

Check with the manufacturers for suitability for your unit and ask them about their recovery rate too.


M-Track combines GSM and RF (radio frequency) technology to pinpoint the location of your caravan and as such claims to be able to locate your unit inside buildings. It carries Sold Secure Approval.
