    Thatcham ratings improving but systems available still seem inferior to outsmart the thief product and this is not recognised in your insurance approved ratings. Outsmart the thief have never lost a caravan or motorhome!

    • Hi John
      Thanks for your comment. Outsmart The Thief is accepted as a tracking device on our touring caravan policy. Due to the values of motorhomes at which we need a tracking device (over £60,000 in value) our underwriters RSA want to make sure a device has been tested. As they are not in a position to test devices themselves, they rely on Thatcham as an independent body. Unfortunately as you say Outsmart The Thief does not currently carry a Thatcham accreditation. We are currently working with Outsmart The Thief to resolve this. Note RSA do allow us to recognise the Outsmart The Thief device as additional security on motorhomes valued above £45,000 and award a 19% premium discount.
