I'm with Caravan Guard because...
"Platinum standard service"
We were unfortunate recently to have our porch awning damaged beyond economical repair. We decided to place a claim against our insurance to have it replaced. We contacted the claims dept on 19th May at about 09:30 am. We provided the information requested, and we were advised that we would be contacted within 24/48 hrs.
On the 20th at 10am or thereabouts we had the word that the claim was approved. By 3pm, we had our replacement awning ready for our next trip out. That can only be classed as PLATINUM standard service. The claims handler Cheryl was extremely professional when dealing with our claim, taking us through the process effortlessly.
We are now in our fourth year with CG it's our first claim but be sure we will always recommend them when ever we can.
Our guide to insuring your touring caravan
Why is having insurance for your caravan a good idea?
A specialist insurance policy for your touring caravan ensures that in the event of the caravan being badly damaged or stolen you aren't left out of pocket.
What to look out for when buying insurance for your touring caravan
- What's covered? Our policy covers you for damage to the caravan itself, plus fixed kitchen equipment such as fridges, freezers and cookers, as well as 'caravan equipment' which includes things such as Aquarolls and security devices, and any items which are used solely in the caravan, such as televisions or radios.
- Removable items such as clothes and toys are known as 'personal possessions' and are often covered by your household policy. These can be covered on our caravan insurance policy but be sure to check with your home contents insurer first to avoid paying for the same cover twice.
High risk items such as laptops, tablets, e-readers, MP3 players, fishing equipment, and pedal or electric cycles cannot be covered on this policy. However, we can insure such items on our exclusive gadget and leisure equipment policy.
- 'New for old' cover means that if your caravan is stolen or damaged beyond economic repair you will be provided a brand new caravan of the same or equivalent specification. Our policy offers replacement with new cover for caravans up to 15 years old.
- Discounts are offered to customers who join a camping or caravan club or read a caravanning magazine. Plus we offer excellent caravan security discounts for satellite tracking devices, alarms, axle wheel locks and secure storage sites.
Does my car insurance policy cover my caravan?
In the event of a road accident whilst towing your caravan which is your fault, your car insurance policy only covers you for damage sustained to a third party, it does not cover any damage sustained to your caravan. Also your caravan is just as likely to be damaged or stolen when detached from your towing vehicle - and in this instance there is absolutely no cover provided by a car insurance policy.Get a
Top ten caravan insurance FAQs
Insurance can be a bit of a minefield, does my policy cover this, what should I do if that and everything else inbetween, to help you find the answers to your questions we've provided you with our top 10 most common and most read caravan related questions.
For touring caravans manufactured before 1992 you should find the VIN or chassis number on a plate on the ‘A’ frame or by the door.
For caravans manufactured after 1992 in addition to the above, you should also find a 17 digit identification number etched on the windows. This is your CRiS number.
The costs to insure a caravan will vary depending on individual circumstances and needs, for example the make and model of the caravan, the value of the caravan, where it’s stored and the amount of security and safety devices on the caravan.
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.
The full list of touring caravan tracking devices which we accept and give discounts for can be found via the link below. These include: Phantom Pro Active, Hal-Locate and Tracker Monitor etc.
If you are unsure as to the current ‘market value’ or ‘new for old’ replacement value of your caravan, our friendly and knowledgeable team will be happy to lend a hand, as they have access to the latest Glass’s Guide valuations. Just call us on 01422 396 769 for assistance or provide us with details for your caravan.
Our minimum security requirements are that your caravan is fitted with a hitchlock, plus a wheel clamp (covering at least one wheel nut) or axle wheel lock (e.g. Al-Ko Secure) when left unattended and detached from your towing vehicle. These devices must be made by a reputable manufacturer.
‘New for old’ cover means that we will replace your insured caravan with the most recent model (or equivalent) if it is stolen and not recovered, or damaged beyond economic repair.
Caravan insurance by law is not a legal requirement. However, without it you’ll likely have to pay for repairs or a replacement out of your own pocket following accident damage you cause, of after storm damage or theft.
