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.
  • Caravan holiday home insurance. This type of insurance is best suited to a caravan that is permanently fixed in one place such as a static caravan, chalet, park lodge or log cabin. 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 The Camping and Caravanning Club

  • Increase security. Fit security alarms and immobilisers to deter thieves. Fitting a security camera or tracking device may also be a good idea.
  • 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 the club. The Camping and Caravanning Club has a huge range of discounts that can be applied to your premium.

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.

All the caravan insurance policies that are provided by Club Care come with £100 excess as standard. This excess would increase if the caravan was stolen however, there would be no excess to pay if the stolen caravan had appropriate safety and security measures in place beforehand.

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

What is the claims process for The Camping and Caravanning Club?

You will need to call the Club Care claims line on 01277 243 001 to make a claim.

It’s worth having your insurance policy details as well as all facts about any incident to hand before calling.

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.
