Touring caravan insurance FAQs

What is a CaSSOA site?

CaSSOA is a recognised membership body providing security accreditations for secure caravan storage sites. Some insurance companies offer policy discounts for caravans stored on secure CaSSOA sites due to their high levels of security features.  It stands for the Caravan Storage Site Owners’ Association and was formed in 1999 in an effort to combat caravan theft.  Since then, the organisation has grown significantly and is now a nationally recognised name.

A CaSSOA storage site gives you peace of mind by minimising security risks to your caravan and will likely have features like perimeter fencing, lockable gates, CCTV and monitored entry and exit, to and from the site. A CaSSOA accreditation is given following an independent survey and the site will be awarded Gold, Silver or Bronze status depending on the security features at the site.

  • Bronze accreditationis the CaSSOA entry-level award. To achieve a bronze award, the site must meet minimum security requirements, including perimeter protection and lockable gates.
  • Silver accreditationis a step up in security, so as well as having the standard security measures in place, a silver accredited site has enhanced security in place such as CCTV and monitored entry and exit of the site.
  • Gold accreditationis the highest award, with these sites offering the highest levels of security. More than 50 per cent of CaSSOA members have a Gold accreditation.
