The Caravan and Motorhome Club is offering leisure vehicle owners insurance to give them peace of mind while heading off on trips in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

It has highlighted the varying needs of owners due to the many differences in circumstances and motorhomes throughout the caravanning community.

One thing all of them have in common, however, is the desire to protect their vehicles against theft and damage, so the Club has designed its Caravan Cover with its members' priorities in mind.

The benefits include new-for-old replacement of the caravan and equipment in the event of loss; cover for storm and flood damage to awnings; and up to £50,000 personal accident cover.

As the Caravan and Motorhome Club is member owned, purchasers of its cover can rest assured any profit will be channelled into its sites and services.

Harvey Alexander, director of marketing at the Caravan and Motorhome Club, said: "As we are a membership organisation, and caravan cover is not a legal requirement, we have been able to establish a product just for our members where all aspects of cover are dealt with by the Club and we have a wide and inclusive acceptance criteria.

"We want to reassure members we're here to help, every mile of the journey, and to help provide peace of mind with ensuring their caravans and trailer tents are covered against loss, theft and damage. We have decades of experience in providing insurance and cover products for our members."

Caravan Cover starts at £59 and there is a Super Cover option available. The Caravan and Motorhome Club was founded in 1907 and has been offering insurance for more than 45 years.

It has a claims handling customer satisfaction score of 9.1 out of ten and 4.95 out of five for service and resolution.

The Caravan and Motorhome Club represents the interests of some one million members and operates more than 200 sites in the UK.
