Carry On Caravanning
Posted on 20th March 2022 at 14:07
Caravan and camping sites are preparing for a bumper year, after this type of holiday became one of the most popular options for UK holidaymakers in 2021.
We have some tips and tricks to make your caravan holiday a home-from-home experience and can recommend making a list of things to pack, to ensure you have the best camping experience possible.
You will need to take more than just your holiday clothes, pots and pans. So we've suggested some essential items, to help you get to your destination and make it through the days and nights.
Firstly, test your equipment, replace batteries, remember spares and torches.
Food often takes longer to cook in a caravan so pre-preparing some items can make for a hassle-free experience. Top tip — cook sausages before you go and store in a cool box, then you can just re-heat without the wait at breakfast.
Other essentials include:
Towing mirrors, spare number plate and wheel clamps
Water carriers and water waste carriers
Electric hook up lead, gas bottle and gas spanner
Smoke/carbon dioxide alarms and fire extinguisher
Toilet chemicals and rinse — Eco-friendly options are available
Awning, BBQ and camping chairs
Tool kit and first aid kit
Having a trial-run before you leave for your hols is always a good idea and remembering these essentials can make time away with loved ones much more relaxing.
Hedon Insurance is very competitive on caravan insurance. We have lots of satisfied clients who renew their insurance year after year and as a thank you to our new clients at Skirlington Leisure Park, we have donated £500 to Hornsea Inshore Rescue, whose volunteers save hundreds of lives at sea throughout the year.
Earlier this year, storms left caravan owners high and not-so-dry, after trees fell down onto their mobile holiday homes in open spaces. These accidents are not usually covered by the caravan park insurance. However, you would be able to claim from your own insurer.
Standard caravan insurance policies usually cover:
Accidental damage: If your touring caravan is damaged in an accident, whilst being towed. For an additional premium you can extend this cover to include accidental damage whilst detached.
Third-party liability: If someone’s property is damaged following an accident or someone is injured.
Malicious damage: If your caravan is damaged as a result of criminal activity.
Extreme weather: If your caravan gets damaged in severe weather or a storm.
Theft: If your caravan is stolen at a caravan, park, campsite or from your home.
Remember, if anything goes wrong while you’re away on holiday, our team of insurance advisers is only a phone call away. Call us on 01482 707800.
