Calling All Thrill Seekers – Caravan Holidays A Security Risk

It may once have been considered a sedate pastime but specialist caravan insurance brokers, has some surprising news for caravan enthusiasts; caravanning can be a security risk!

According to news reports, UK foreign secretary Margaret Beckett has been asked to forgo her usual caravan holidays to the south of France by police officials because of the logistical problems of organising security.

Caravan holidays are not normally considered a security hazard for holiday makers, comments Richard Burgess, Director of Alan Blunden and Co Ltd. The problem for high profile caravan fans is the need for security on the journey and then at the holiday parks.

Luckily for most caravan fans, keeping a lower profile means police protection is not likely to cast a shadow over the popular summer profile. This just goes to show that being a well known face does come with a downside! says Burgess. On a more serious note, all caravan owners run the risk of theft and damage so both new and old caravans should be insured to their full value.

Even the most secure of caravan parks are unable to guarantee 24 hour protection for their campers and unfortunately theft and break ins do sometimes occur. So even though you probably dont need a police motorcade to enjoy a caravan break on the continent this year, taking adequate measures to protect your static or touring caravan guarantees peace of mind.
