How to save on your caravan insurance policy with Leisuredays

  • Increase security. Fitting security alarms or cameras could be a good way to deter thieves.
  • Increase the excess. Agreeing to pay a bigger voluntary excess could make your overall premium cheaper. But remember that your insurer won’t pay out for a claim that costs less than your excess. So be careful about making it too high, as it could leave you out of pocket if damage occurs.
  • Join a club. It’s worth checking whether you can get a discount by joining a national or regional caravan owners’ club.

What is my excess?

Your insurance excess is the amount of money you have to pay towards a claim. Your insurer won’t pay out for a claim that costs less than this amount.

A voluntary excess is normally an amount set by you when taking out a policy. You’ll have the option of adding or increasing a voluntary excess, which could in turn reduce your premium.

Meanwhile, a compulsory excess amount might vary depending on the age and standard of your caravan or your driving experience.

With Leisuredays static caravan insurance, there is a minimum excess of £75, which could be increased in order to reduce the premium.

You’ll find details about any compulsory or voluntary excesses in your policy document.

What is the claims process for Leisuredays?

You can call the Leisuredays claims line on 01422 501 085 to make a claim. This 24-hour claims line is open seven days a week.

You’ll need to have your insurance policy details as well as all facts about any incident to hand.

It’s important that you let your insurer know about an incident as soon as possible, even if it’s not your fault. A delay in reporting an incident or failure to report it could result in a rejected claim later on.
