Touring caravan insurance FAQs

Can you park a caravan on the road/street?

It is not illegal to park your caravan on the road, but some insurance companies will not be able to insure the caravan if it is stored on the road due higher risk than storing it off road.

If you are parking the caravan on the road it must be lit at night and comply with the other normal parking rules (the nearside must face the pavement so the rear lights are at the rear for approaching traffic).

The caravan should not block anybody’s driveway or create a hazard to other road users, such as blocking visibility around a tight bend.

Some Local Councils also take a strong line on the nuisance value of caravans and do, in some cases, take legal action. It’s worth checking with the Council before parking on the road and your insurer to confirm whether you would be covered.
