That is how I understand it, Audsley1, but I am no expert, nor am I involved with any insurance company, excepts as a customer.

I would suggest that your partner's daughter should check with their car insurance to make sure they are covered for towing a caravan. They also need to check whether their driving licence covers it, particularly if they have passed their test since 1997. If they have passed their test since that date, their licence will only cover them up to a combined weight (car+caravan) of 3.5 tonnes, and some car & caravan combinations can be over 3.5 tonnes. Pre 1997 car licences covered up to 7.5 tonnes,

Best Regards,
Colin D.

So trying to choose what to do about my caravan insurance that's coming up for renewal. I am with CC&C at present but I no longer want to be a club member as even though use their sites never asked for card. The CC want 400+, Caravan Guard just under 300.On the face of it Caravan Guard looks favourite but what extra am I getting with the CC? I can't seem to tell. Any advice gratefully received.

Will proabably depend what security you have. My full rate is 784 but I pay 302 a year with CC.
Have alarm discount, tracking device discount, alko wheel lock discount, electronic trailer control discount. Have some contents cover, voluntary excess, no claims discount of 4 years, NCD is protected. Pay monthly so there is installment charge and also have legal cover.
Also depends on vans value and new for old cover, which with standard is 5 years, which we have.
This is on a new van and because it came with tracker we activated it which then gave us another discount and made it cheaper that our 2012 van.
We also had a claim last year and was dealt with very efficiently, which didnt affect renewal as it was protected.
Guess look around and decide what you want covered and how much security you are prepared to use.
Ours also has tilt sensor which along with alarm is standard on the van.
