Summary of insurance discounts available
|Discount||Do you Qualify?|
|Up to 52%||No claim discount||
No claim discount
You can transfer no claim discount from the previous insurer of your motorhome, car or other insured vehicle.
If you don't have any discount to transfer, you may still qualify for a large introductory discount if you have been insured and claim free on your private car, a company car, or a named driver on your partner's policy.
We can protect your motorhome no claim discount if you have 5 years or more NCD earned on another motor vehicle policy which is available for transfer to your new Caravan Guard policy. To qualify you must not have made a motor insurance claim within the last 12 months.
If you do protect your no claim discount the overall discount you receive will reduce slightly.
|2.5%||Motorhome club/magazine discount||
Motorhome club or magazine reader discount
You will qualify for an insurance discount if you are a member of any motorhome or caravan club (national, regional or owners' club).

Cat 1 Alarm systems
CAT 1 alarms generate a sound when any of the doors on a motorhome – including the boot and bonnet – are opened. The alarm can be set using either a traditional key fob, PIN code or touch key. In order for the alarm to work and detect suspicious activity, the passenger compartment in the vehicle must have interior movement monitoring. The siren on the alarm must also have its own integral power supply with a coded communication to the alarm electronic control unit. The alarm’s accompanying immobiliser also helps to alert the vehicle’s owner of any movement within the motorhome and must be engaged within 60 seconds of the ignition being switched off. When installed, CAT 1 alarms will sound within 300 seconds of a break-in occurring. If you know the name of your motorhome’s alarm system you can check if it has Thatcham’s Category 1 approval atwww.thatcham.org
|25%||Approved tracking device||
Discount for motorhome tracking devices
Such devices can help locate your stolen motorhome by guiding police to its position using GPS technology. Not all tracking devices qualify for our discount.Learn more

I'm with Caravan Guard because...
"Excellent European Breakdown Service"
In 2014 our motorhome broke down on a mountainside in Spain. A phone call to Caravan Guard led to recovery on a low loader the 120kms to Malaga, where we were provided with a hotel room with B&B for the week it took for a repair to be effected. This enabled us to get to know the Malaga area and enjoy our waiting time. We are appreciative of the excellent service provided through Caravan Guard. During our many years of insurance cover by them, it is always 'service with a smile' – Well, it sounds that way when talking with them on the phone!RamblingRoses, Review Centre
Our guide to motorhome insurance
Why do I need specialist motorhome cover?
Motorhome insurance is a legal requirement just like car or van insurance, but the cover needed is very different because of the way you use your motorhome, and the amount of equipment and facilities it contains.
What are the key things to look for when choosing a motorhome policy for your insurance?
- Only pay for the cover you need: We let you choose whether to include European Cover, and calculate premiums based on your annual mileage - so if you don't go abroad, or only drive a few thousand miles a year, you can make sure you are only paying for the insurance cover you need.
- Get all the discounts you deserve: Security devices such as Pro-Active Tracking Devices, alarm systems and immobilisers will earn you big insurance discounts with us, but simple steps such as keeping your motorhome behind 24 hour locked gates, fitting a reversing camera, or joining a motorhoming club will also drive down your insurance premium.
- UK motorhome breakdown cover is automatically included with our motorhome insurance policy and European insurance and breakdown cover is available as an optional extra. Some breakdown services have size or weight restrictions - our breakdown cover doesn't have any limits on the size or weight of the vehicle and so is suitable for large or small motorhomes.
- 'New for Old' cover is offered on motorhomes up to 2 years old (subject to you owning it from new). This means that if the motorhome is stolen or damaged beyond economic repair you will be given a brand new motorhome of the same or nearest equivalent model. 'Market Value' cover means that you will be given a cash sum which represents the lost motorhome's current 'Market Value' in such a total loss situation.
- Make sure the policy is with a reputable insurer. Our motorhome policy is underwritten by Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance plc (RSA), one of the UK's leading insurers.
