How to find the best caravan insurance
Whenever you’re looking for insurance cover, your first step should be to compare policies. Our table below will help.
When comparing policies, don’t just look at the price. Cheapest doesn’t mean best, so make sure the policy you go with has all the elements you require. For example, if you want a static caravan policy that offers cover for public liability (in case someone is injured or their property is damaged in the caravan), make sure you take out a policy that includes this as standard.
When you’ve chosen your provider, go through the application process. You’ll need to give full, accurate information when answering every question, as failing to do so can invalidate your whole policy.
When you’ve taken out the cover, download your policy documents and keep them in a safe place (whether that’s on your desktop or as hard copies in your home or office). Keep them somewhere you can access in case you need to make a query or a claim.
Make a note of the claim line number for your provider in your phone or on a piece of paper in your caravan (preferably both), for use in case of an emergency.

Frequently asked questions
This will depend on the type of caravan you want to insure, the model, how much it’s worth and what you keep inside it. Bigger, more expensive caravans will likely cost more to insure.
For static caravans, where it’s located will also affect the cost, whereas touring caravan premiums will be affected by where you are planning to travel with it.
When comparing caravan insurance, remember that cheapest isn’t always best. Make sure you take out a policy that offers sufficient cover for your needs, not just the one with the lowest premium.
Most insurers will let you pay for your insurance in monthly instalments, but this might work out to be more expensive overall as interest may apply to the payments.
A static caravan is located somewhere specific on a permanent basis, usually a holiday caravan park. It functions like a holiday home, though most static caravans can be moved if needed.
Touring caravans are designed to be hitched to the back of a car and driven around on holiday with you. They allow you to have some of the creature comforts of home while on the road.
