If a shiny new motorhome is top of your Christmas list this year, it might be useful to know how much you could save when the time comes to insure it.
Several new 2014 models come with various safety and security features as standard or as optional extras which will reduce your insurance premium. We’ve put a handful of 2014’s most anticipated motorhomes under the spotlight to find out which save you the most money…
Here’s a selection of motorhome insurance discounts we offer that relate to common standard or optional security or safety features found on 2014 motorhomes:
Each motorhome in Swift Group’s Swift, Bessacarr, Escape and Autocruise ranges is fitted with the Battery Powered Tracker Retrieve tracking device.
Caravan Guard customers who have an approved tracking device fitted to their motorhome receive a 25% insurance discount – so if you’ve recently invested in any of the Swift Group models mentioned you too could enjoy this huge saving!
If you’re unsure whether your motorhome’s tracker offers this great saving, simply check the Caravan Guard list of approved tracking devices.

Each Elddis Aspire is fitted with a Thatcham Category 1 alarm security system and reversing camera as standard, which both attract insurance discounts.
Owners looking to insure a Swift Kontiki motorhome can also benefit from a reversing camera discount on top of a tracking device discount for the standard fit Tracker Retrieve device.
Reversing cameras offer a 2.5% insurance discount with Caravan Guard
Beyond that we have noticed several manufacturers offering security and safety devices as options.
Elddis, for example, offers both Thatcham Category 1 alarm systems and tracking devices across its Autoquest and Accordo ranges.
Look out also for security and safety features amongst popular optional accessory packs. If a motorhome buyer chooses the “Comfort Pack” from Autocruise, the “Premium Pack” from Auto-Sleepers, the “Media Pack” from Auto-Trail, or the “Vogue Pack” from Swift, they will, amongst other fantastic goodies, get a reversing camera which will lower their insurance costs. European motorhome manufacturers such as Hymer and several van converters also offer reversing cameras amongst a host of options.

Please note the maximum Caravan Guard motorhome insurance security device discount available is 25%. Secure storage and reversing camera discounts can be achieved on top of this. Swift Group motorhomes come with an initial 3 month free Tracker Retrieve subscription – if taking a policy with Caravan Guard AND wish to benefit from the tracking device discount you must maintain an active subscription for the duration of your policy.
