  • Damage repair : Should the need arise to have repairs made, how quickly and who will these be carried out by?
  • Limitations of contents : The overall figure may see good, but what is the cover for individual items types. For example cover for contents GBP10,000 looks good, but what is the limit on jewelry. This may be adequate but if you have jewelry worth more than the figure covered you should look into getting high value cover. The same idea applies to any gadgets on board.
  • Windshield : Check that these are covered. if not try and get them included or take out a separate cover from a national windscreen repair specialist.

How can I lower my static caravan insurance premium

  • The more secure your caravan is seen to be then the more savings you could make on your premium. Fitting security devices like an alarm can act as a deterrent to thieves and could help you make some savings and keep down the cost of the insurance. 
  • You could also increase your excess above minimum that the insurance company is requesting. Like any insurance, the excess is the amount of money you pay towards the cost of any claim.
  • You could choose third party only cover, obviously you will have less cover than fully comprehensive option.
  • Limit drivers to over 25 and if possible only permit drivers with a good history of no claims. Drivers under 25 are seen as high risk and will raise your annual static caravan insurance premium
