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,

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.

I was surprised at the cost of caravan insurance compared to motorhome cover, I was hoping for some cost saving. We went with Towergate in the end.
We were in the CC for about three years when we had the motorhome, but let our membership lapse. The reason for joining CC was for the discounts, but we could never get the same cover cheaper then Adrian flux.

Hi Nick

I have a claim in at the present time, my van sides were scored when another vehicle forced me over, although the scoring has not punctured the skin and filling can remedy the problem the estimate is just over 1000.00. I shudder to think what it would have cost if the damage had been more extensive. I am upgrading the van and would have lost a lot of trade in value, so i am glad of insurance.




As you were forced off the road I hope your insurance company will claim from that driver's insurance.

We camped for many years and in 2012 we bought a caravan. We love the freedom of camping or caravanning.

I have just insured my folding caravan (Rapido Orline) with Shield Total insurance - they cover all types of caravan, trailer tents, etc. it only cost 50 for me, and that was worth the peace of mind. I have even done it monthly for 6 over ten months, so I haven't even felt an outlay. :)
