Breakdown Insurance for Caravan and Car

If you’re about to embark on a caravan holiday, it’s wise to be prepared for anything that could befall you. Your car isn’t infallible and there’s always the possibility that it could break down on the journey, so you need to make sure that you have adequate breakdown insurance in place before you set off.

This is even more important when you consider that towing a caravan can put an awful lot of strain on the car, so you need to make sure that if it does break down you’re not going to be stuck in the middle of the road. Most car insurance policies will be able to offer additional cover for touring caravans as standard, so always make sure that it’s included and if not invest in a separate caravan insurance policy.

Your breakdown cover should ideally include breakdown assistance if the worst were to happen. Breaking down is bad enough at the best of times, but if you’ve got a caravan behind you it can be an even bigger disaster. You need to make sure that assistance is always included so you can get off the hard shoulder and back on the road as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately, not all insurance policies (car or caravan) will offer caravan breakdown assistance as standard. You need to check the small print and if it isn’t there always buy it as an addition to your policy, as while this could mean a slight increase in the price of your premiums the extra money spent will be well worth it.

So, you really do need breakdown insurance when you’re towing a caravan to make sure that you’re completely prepared. You wouldn’t want to be stranded on public roads with no chance of getting a cost-effective pick up, so always make sure you have adequate cover in place and you can start your holiday with added peace of mind.
