Why should I use a price comparison service?
It’s fast, simple and cost effective. Complete one form to receive and compare multiple insurance quotes, in addition to the cover on offer, and help ensure you find the right policy for your needs.
How does it work?
Fill out one form and we generate a range of competitive insurance prices. The prices are then displayed on a panel which compares the premium, level of excess and, dependant on the line of business, legal cover, European cover and breakdown cover too.
How long does it take?
Once you’ve submitted your details online, which usually takes no more than 5 minutes, the prices will begin to appear on the quote panel. Dependant on your details and your internet connection, you should usually have all available quotes returned within a minute.
Do you only search and compare caravan insurance?
We search and compare insurance for touring caravans, static caravans, motorhomes, park homes and trailer tents.
Won’t I pay more if I use a middleman?
No. We ensure that the prices you see are the same as if you had gone direct to the insurer/provider, either by phone or online. This is, of course, dependent on you providing the same risk details in each instance.
What happens to the personal information I provide?
What if I have a question about the policy?
If you require any specific information, details or advice about the cover provided by a particular policy, please contact the relevant insurance provider. A contact phone number is provided in the ‘More Info’ section on the CaravanQuoter.co.uk quote page, and by ringing and quoting the reference number, the relevant insurer will be able to assist you further.
Do I need to disclose any non-motoring convictions?
Yes. All non-motoring convictions are required when prompted by the quote form. Withholding or supplying false information could result in the policy becoming void or result in additional premiums.
What is motorhome insurance?
Motorhome insurance is a legal requirement that will, dependant on the policy that you buy, insure you against accidental damage to your motorhome or toward another party, and insure you against fire and theft. Other benefits that are often available to add to your motorhome insurance policy, or are sometimes included in your policy, are legal expense cover, European cover and breakdown cover. For full details on what your motorhome insurance policy covers, please read the policy documents.
What is caravan insurance?
Caravan Insurance is there to protect you and your investment against unforeseen large expense. For example, if you are involved in an accident or subject to a fire, theft or vandalism, the cost of repairs and/or replacement could be extortionate. Even worse, if you should be involved in an accident involving a third party, you could face legal proceedings and a huge financial loss. Caravan Insurance is there to give you that peace of mind and security.
How much is caravan insurance?
Caravan insurance premiums vary depending on many factors including but not restricted to the level of cover, the age of your caravan, the value of your caravan, the security devices on your caravan and the storage location of your caravan.
How much is motorhome insurance?
Motorhome insurance premiums vary depending on many factors including but not restricted to the level of cover, the age and value of your motorhome, the level of security devices used and the storage location of your motorhome.
Why can’t I find my make/model?
If you are unable to find your make/model of caravan it may be that it’s a new model and has not yet been updated on our system. Please send us an e-mail at email@example.com detailing the make/model and we will endeavour to get it updated on the system as soon as possible.
Can I get new for old cover?
We give you the opportunity to select either ‘new for old’ or ‘market value’ cover on the quote form. Any insurers which provide a price will have covered you for that option.
Is my caravan covered when I am in Europe?
On the quote page there is a column for ‘European Cover’, next to the relevant insurer will either be a tick or cross, indicating whether European cover is included in the premium. The length of time that cover is provided varies per insurance policy. For full terms and conditions and full cover details please read the relevant insurer’s policy details.
Are the contents and associated equipment covered?
When filling in the quote form, there is an option for contents cover and other cover such as ‘personal effects’, ‘awning cover’. Enter here the amount of cover required. For full cover details and to ensure that specific high value items are covered, please read the full policy details or ring the relevant insurance provider, quoting the reference number, where they will be able to assist you further.
Do you cover Static Caravans abroad?
No. Unfortunately, none of our partners provide cover for static caravans located outside the UK.
Do I need a wheel clamp and hitchlock?
Most insurers will not provide cover if your caravan does not have both a wheel clamp and a hitchlock. Remember, the more secure your caravan appears to be, the lower the risk of theft and therefore the premium reduces with the risk.
Can I choose the level of excess?
On the quote form, CaravanQuoter.co.uk gives you the option to select a preferred excess. If the insurance provider has a compulsory excess, and if the insurer allows for voluntary excess, your chosen excess will be split between voluntary and compulsory excess to form one total excess. The quote table page will detail the total excess (both compulsory and voluntary). It is not always the case that your requested excess amount will be fulfilled by a provider. Please refer to an individual policy document for confirmation.
How do I reset my password?
