Caravan and Motorhome Club offers variety of insurance options

UNITED KINGDOM — With 110 years of inspiring people to have adventures in the UK and abroad and 50 years insurance experience, the Caravan and Motorhome Club offers an unrivalled range of bespoke insurance policies for its million-plus members, tailored to reflect their ever changing needs. Harvey Alexander, director of marketing for the Caravan and Motorhome Club, said that a priority for the club is to make members aware of the extent of different policies available and the breadth of coverage provided. “Many members naturally think we just offer motorhome and caravan insurance. However, our range extends far beyond that to include car, breakdown/recovery and holiday insurance as well as home and pet insurance,” he said.

The most popular insurance taken out by members is Standard Caravan Insurance, which has been independently rated 5-stars by Defaqto since 2013 for its wide range of features and benefits. Premiums for the club’s standard insurance start at £49, based on a van value of £2,000, £100 excess and four years’ no-claims discount. There are no hidden admin fees, only one security device is required – many insurers demand two – and there are no storage restrictions within the UK. The club’s standard caravan insurance policy also provides personal accident cover for persons up to the age of 85. Many insurers won’t provide personal accident insurance for people aged over ...
