The caravan insurance search

Searching for the right caravan is one thing, performing a caravan insurance search is something else.

The caravan type

Caravan insurance is typically divided by the classic generic caravan categories:

  • statics (caravans occupied for holiday purposes and typically semi-permanently located on a single site);
  • tourers;
  • trailer-tents;
  • motorhomes;
  • park homes (typically a permanently located dwelling on a licensed park home location, which you occupy permanently as your principle home);
  • caravan-campers (some insurers may treat these as a separate category, others may regard them as effectively motorhomes).

Your caravan insurance search will typically be through the category that applies to your particular caravan.

The variables

The cost of your caravan insurance protection will obviously vary upon a number of things but a few that may not be obvious might include:

  • how often you plan to take your mobile caravan overseas and for how long;
  • the types and varieties of security devices you have fitted;
  • where you park a mobile caravan when you’re not using it (if that’s just on a public road then your premiums will typically be higher);
  • whether or not your static is parked on a registered and secure site;
  • the ages and experience of any drivers of a mobile caravan (typically some insurers may enforce restrictions in those areas).

The requirements

Typically all insurance policies carry conditions. In Read more…

What is park home caravan insurance?

Park home caravan insurance is a form of insurance protection that applies to a special category of non-traditional dwelling.

If that sounds to be something of a clumsy definition, let’s explain why.

Static caravans and park homes

A static caravan typically conforms to certain expectations in terms of its insurance characteristics:

  • even if it has wheels and is theoretically mobile, it is typically semi-permanently secured and anchored at a single site;
  • it is used by the owners or their guests for a few weeks or months per year as a holiday home or weekend retreat etc.

A park home is typically quite different:

  • it is sited on a registered and council approved park home site;
  • it may be specially constructed and designated as a park home and typically can’t be seen as being mobile;
  • you inhabit it as your normal and permanent place of residence.

Why is this distinction important and lead to the need for specific park home caravan insurance?


Of course, some static caravans are equipped to very high standard in terms of their fixtures and fittings. The Read more…
