Are there any restrictions to where I can keep my caravan?
Cover is available at normal terms for touring caravans kept at home, on a registered caravan site or in a dedicated caravan compound. However, we do understand that this set-up isn’t always possible. So with a little extra information from you, we’ll consider any UK location provided it’s secure and doesn’t significantly increase the risk of theft or damage.
Can you insure my caravan if it’s permanently sited?
Absolutely, as long as you caravan is permanently resident in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Island, Channel Islands or the Isle of Man.
If I store my touring caravan in Europe would my caravan still be covered?
We do not cover caravans stored outside of the UK. However policies do include a maximum of 90 days European cover.
I keep my caravan on a CaSSOA registered site. Will this bring my premium down?
Absolutely. We work in partnership with CaSSOA and recognise the standard of security on these sites. In fact, whether it’s a bronze, silver or gold CaSSOA site, we’ll give you generous discounts to reflect the reduced theft risk.
Will my caravan motor mover be covered by insurance?
Yes, this is classed as caravan equipment and is covered in your policy.
What is meant by “Personal Possessions”?

What is CRiS or VIN/Chassis number?
The Caravan Registration Identification Scheme (CRiS) is a database of all caravans manufactured since 1992 by National Caravan Council (NCC).
Pre-1992 or imported caravans will have a VIN number or chassis number instead. It is possible to register your caravan with CRiS yourself.
Where can I find the CRiS or VIN/Chassis number?
The CRiS number is edged into the windows of the caravan and is 17 digits long.
Pre-1992 or imported caravans can find the VIN or chassis number either on the ‘A’ plate or by the door.
Do you insure Static Caravans?
Yes, as long as they are situated in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Island, Isle of Man or Channel Islands.
Whether you own a touring or a static caravan, wherever you’re based in the UK or want to travel throughout Europe, we get how important your caravan is to you so we’ll always make sure you have the options to ensure your home-from-home is protected the way you want it to be.
