The National Caravan Council (NCC), the caravan industry’s trade body, estimates that some two million additional caravan holidays could be taken in the UK this year.
Furthermore, they say that bookings are up by as much as 50% on UK holiday and touring caravan sites as people opt for low cost self catering ‘staycationing’
A solid touring caravan insurance policy covers you for fire or theft, as well as accidental damage to your caravan, whilst on the road, on site or in storage.
It’s worth bearing in mind that a standard car insurance policy only covers damage to your car and your liability for third party injury or damage to third party property – it won’t pay for your caravan to be repaired or replaced if you have an accident whilst towing.
If you’ve decided to invest in a static caravan, holiday home or lodge in the UK, then caravan Guard’s sister brand Leisuredays can offer you extensive “all risks” cover all year round, including an option for “replacement with new cover” for units less than 10 years old and many other benefits.
Unlike static and touring caravan insurance, motorhome insurance is a legal requirement just like car insurance. Peter Wilby, Managing Director at Caravan Guard and an experienced caravan and motorhomer, explains more,
“If you’re thinking of investing in a motorhome you have a legal responsibility to arrange cover before you can drive it. Caravan Guard offer comprehensive “all risks” cover, including damage to windscreens and UK breakdown as standard, with European breakdown an optional extra.”
