No one could ever blame you for trying to find the best caravan insurance cover that you can, to help you protect the investment that you may have made in your vehicle.
Whether talking about touring caravans, statics or park homes etc, seeing a product advertised as the best caravan insurance cover may be misleading.
That’s because what may be the best caravan insurance cover for you and your caravan may not be best for someone else who may have different views on what an ideal caravan insurance policy may provide.
Where and how often you use your caravan, your views on caravan security and what you can do to help keep your caravan a bit safer, may all influence the type of caravan cover that may be most appropriate for you.
Where and how
With a touring caravan, for example, you may fall into one of two broad categories.
- do all of your touring in the UK;
- occasionally (or frequently) cross the channel and tour the continent.
If you are in the first group, a caravan insurance policy, which does not include continental cover, may be perfectly acceptable to you.
On the other hand, if you do prefer to venture further afield, then continental cover as standard may be a feature of tourer insurance that you actively seek out.
You may also take a special interest in the number of days cover or mileage allowance actually provided by a policy, as this may limit your freedom to travel where and when you choose.
If you use our services to help you find a solution to your touring caravan needs, then we may be able to provide you with details of policies where the providers may ask that you take some fairly common sense steps to improve tourer security.
These providers may also be able to offer discounts in certain circumstances if you can adopt some additional security measures.
- you may find that there are some policies for touring caravans where you may be required to fit a wheel clamp if you leave your caravan unsupervised whilst it is still attached to your towing vehicle – if you unhitch the caravan you may be asked to additionally fit a hitchlock;
- discounts may be available if you are able to park your tourer in your driveway when you are not using it (rather than leaving it on the roadside) or fit security alarms or a tracking device.
The best caravan insurance cover for you may be the policy that provides you with the cover you need and at a price that you are happy with. We will be more than happy to help you find what you are looking for, so please feel free to get in touch!
