Picture the scene – you’re towing your caravan to a campsite on your long-awaited and well-earned tour.

Suddenly, another driver makes a foolish error and clips the side of your caravan, resulting in damage to your home-from-home.

It’s a pain, but not to worry, your caravan insurance will take care of it – at least, that’s what you might think.

But choose the wrong insurance plan – or worse still, don’t take out any caravan insurance at all – and you could be left high and dry with expensive repairs and a ruined holiday.

Go with a cut-price provider and you might feel as though you’ve got a great bargain. But will it seem such a good deal when you need to make a claim, and you find you’re not fully covered?

Experts in the caravan insurance field

That’s why Practical Caravan would always recommend going with an insurance provider who understands caravanners and their specific needs, and who has a great history of offering caravanners the right cover.

Shield Total Insurance – formerly known as Shield Direct – was born in 1993, and was one of the UK’s first specialist caravan insurance intermediaries.

Over the past 30 years it’s given caravanners true peace of mind thanks to its specialist policies.

What’s more, it’s been Defaqto 5* rated for 12 years. Single-axle, twin-axle, British and Continental-style caravans can all be covered, too.
