What types of caravan insurance are available?

  • Touring caravan insurance. This is relevant for anyone towing a caravan on the roads for leisure. This is not a legal requirement but worth considering to keep a caravan protected whilst being towed.
  • Static caravan insurance. This type of insurance is best suited to a caravan that is permanently fixed in one place. Although this is not a legal requirement, most holiday parks will require a basic level of protection in the form of caravan liability insurance.

How to save on your caravan insurance policy with Staveley Head

  • Increase security. Fitting security alarms, immobilisers, tracking devices or cameras could be a good way to deter thieves and earn discounts on you premium.
  • 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.
  • Increase safety. Installing devices such as electronic anti-snaking devices, axle wheel locks to the caravan chassis or tyre pressure monitoring systems to caravan tyres, could result in additional discounts.
  • Join a club. Some insurers offer discounts if you become a member of a camping, touring or caravanning club or association.

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.

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