Why get static caravan insurance?

Let's talk about static caravan insurance

Why static caravan insurance?

Static caravan insurance in Ireland keeps your holiday home covered and is closer to a home insurance policy given the static nature of the structure. A static caravan is a semi-permanent structure, which is fitted with an external water and electricity supply, and usually kept on a caravan site. A static caravan is a signifiant investment, with some statics and lodges costing in excess of €100k and come with double glazing, a pitched roof, and all the comforts now as standard. Therefore it is important to ensure that you have the right cover in place.

Are you a static caravan owner?

What type of cover do I need?

A static caravan insurance policy in Ireland is somewhat similar to a home insurance policy, and if your caravan is located on a dedicated caravan site or park, you may need to have insurance in place from the day it is positioned on the site as part of the terms and conditions. The typical policy will cover for fire, theft, and storm and flood damage. You can also obtain cover for your contents that will protect your fixtures and fittings and appliances. Our partner caravan specialists cover all makes and models to include ABI, Willerby, Swift, and Carnaby.

What is covered?

There are two main cover options for your static caravan. Firstly, New for old, if your caravan is damaged beyond repair or stolen, the policy will pay out the equivalent cost of the brand new caravan provided the sum insured reflects that value. Market value cover will pay out the market rate for a caravan of similar age and condition at the time of damage or when it is stolen. Contents cover is a common optional extra.

How much does static caravan insurance cost?

The cost of static caravan insurance can be as little as €150 per annum but will depend on a number of factors such as: the make and model of the caravan; the age of your caravan; the contents in your caravan; the length of cover you choose; the excess amount on your policy; where your caravan is parked; the claim history; and its security features.

How do I make caravan insurance cheaper?

Caravan insurance can be expensive but there are ways to try and reduce the cost. You may be eligible to get a discount on your caravan insurance if you have had no previous claims and have built up a no claims bonus.
