Caravan insurance is no diverse and in the occasion of a claim you require to know that you are backed up by a professional service that treats you fairly, swiftly and appropriately. It is critical when purchasing caravan insurance to preserve a copy of the documents and policy wording and to take this with you when travelling. These documents will give a manual as to what to do in the event that something goes incorrect, and the important numbers to make contact with.

With your insurance you will typically have purchased the cover by way of an insurance broker or by way of a direct insurer, this is essential as this will have an effect on who you want to contact. With an insurance broker or intermediary you can either contact them as your agent, or in the majority of instances you will be passed straight to the insurer. This will mean that you get instant advice from the caravan insurance provider as to the greatest program of action and generally a claim kind will be sent to you to comprehensive. It is also general practice that you will need to have to offer 2 estimates for the repair of the caravan to show the costs are accurate.

One of the far more prevalent claims, especially in the winter months is for harm to awnings, and it is vital to note that if you are not with your caravan you need to take any awnings down.

The basic suggestions that we would give is to check your policy documents really carefully and query something that you are not clear on, it is very best to ease your mind on these issues.

There is considerably far more that we could compose about claims, but in real terms as talked about at the beginning, the best caravan insurers place claims at the leading of their agenda and show a genuine dedication to service, immediately after all what are you paying for otherwise?

    I’ve never been to the US. I never really thought of going there until last year. I’ve visited many cities around the world, and I consider myself to be a city person. But I’ve never really been interested in visiting the metropolitan areas in the US (although I’m sure they’re fabulous). I’ve always been interested in native American lands, and road trips in a caravan. Is that crazy? I see that a lot in movies and it’s almost like you can’t do that stuff anywhere else.

    I hear there are plenty of caravan parks – are they places you can live in overnight with your caravan?

    How much will I need for a holiday like this (per person), if I am in the US for about 3 weeks?

    Thanks! 🙂
    Thank you Nola & Kanien for your answers, I really appreciate them. Don’t worry Kanien, I won’t touch anyone, haha. I am actually just interested to see the nature & lands. I’m sure the native Americans have integrated into the modern Western world. I really don’t want to go there and offend anyone, that’s not my intention. I do intend to follow all the rules, and just have a good time exploring. 🙂

    I don’t want to sound personal but I am wondering what everyone pays in car insurance. I happen to live in Michigan which has the highest car insurances rates in the country. I am planning to move soon and was wondering how much people are paying across the country. Please don’t feel a need to give me the exact number, a range is fine. Also, please tell me the car type because I know that matters. Again with car type you don’t have to tell the car. Example if you drive a 911 Porsche you could say, 2 door, luxury sports car. Any other information would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Our current home insurers say that if we site a caravan for letting, our home insurance will be invalid. Have tried many insurers and none will offer house insurance with additional public liability for letting caravan. Business insurers say they don’t cover.. Caravan insurers say “only if on licensed park” There MUST be someone out there who has a static caravan sited on land adjacent to their home and who knows how to ensure that their home and their visitors are covered by insurance! Help!

    My husband and I are looking into getting two different vehicles and I am just trying to get an estimate on how much its going to cost to register them and how much I may need up front for insurance. I am 24 years old, my husband is 23 and a former truck driver. The two cars are a 1996 grand caravan (red if needed) and a 1980 Chevette (black if needed). I do not know mileage yet for either one.
    I live in La Verkin, Utah. I would just need liability. We both have clean driving records.

    The insurance company is going to ‘total out’ my minivan. 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan SE w/ 109000 miles. They are going to get back with me on the payout amount that is “fair market value”
    I do not want to get ripped off,so I need to know should I search kelley blue book under trade in value, private party value, or retail value? All help appreciated.

    We need to replace our 2000 Dodge Caravan minivan. It’d be nice to find something that is more fuel efficient. I need something that will be inexpensive to buy (under $10,000, preferably lower) and maintain (low insurance, repairs, etc.) We currently have a toddler but we’d like to have more children eventually. I don’t know much about hatchbacks, wagons, and sedans, nor SUVs. Need advice ASAP. Thanks!
