    Hi Alan,

    We do!

    Our standard introductory no claims discount on touring caravan insurance is 10%, but because we recognise the driving experience and skill of HGV drivers we can offer our maximum no claims discount of 20% straight away, providing you have at least 5 years HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle) driving experience and haven’t had any caravan insurance claims.

    hope that helps,

    Caravan Guard

    I have a HGV licence does that cover me for a 10% discount been driving lorries for 30+ years.

    These are very good tips but the most important one is people should go on a caravan towing course. The additional benefit is you can get 10% discount with some insurers and this can repay the course fee ( approx £90 ) in three years.
    We now own our second caravan having had a 10 year spell without one, first time round I did not go on a course but was always sensible while driving, however with the increase in traffic etc on our roads today we all agreed on the course it should be made compulsory and it was surprising what new tips one picked up from the course.
