AA launches caravan insurance

23 August 2006
Although caravanning holidays have had their fair share of criticisms from various quarters, AA has announced it will be catering towards the 620,000 caravan owners in Britain with a new insurance policy.

Recently, Jeremy Clarkson, one of the presenters of BBC's Top Gear programme, described caravanning in Dorset as "like a concentration camp" and claimed "there is no upside to caravanning".

However, despite this high-profile jibe at the industry, it remains a popular and relatively cheap form of holidaying for many Britons, even if it is one that can lead to several potential problems, noted Gerry Barrett, AA's head of caravan insurance.

"Upturned caravans, branch-shaped dents and contents scattered down the M4 are just some of the claims made by Britain's caravanners but the most common mistake is not checking for cover in mainland Europe," he said.

"AA caravan insurance offers European or worldwide cover and [a] 'new for old' policy, so should the unthinkable happen you can rest assured your home away from home is fully covered, wherever that may be."
