While holiday caravans in the UK are a great way for people to plan regular holidays (or even generate an additional stream of income through holiday lets), having a caravan overseas is also proving to be increasingly popular. For savvy holidaymakers owning a mobile home or caravan abroad can be an excellent way of getting holidays in the sun for a fraction of the cost.

Wherever your caravan is based, you can be rest assured your prized possession can be safeguarded with an Intasure overseas caravan insurance policy. We’ll even provide protection for your property if you let it out to other sun-starved Brits!

What is overseas caravan insurance?

Overseas caravan insurance policies help protect you against the risks facing caravans abroad. For instance, any physical losses or damage caused to your static caravan or mobile home contents. Our policies also include protection for expenses, such as situations where you need alternative accommodation or must pay for emergency travel costs. In the next section, we’ll dig down into the other forms of protection overseas caravan insurance affords.

What does overseas caravan insurance cover?

The caravan cover you may benefit from depends on several factors, including the size of your caravan, where it’s based, and what it’s used for. Once we understand these specifics, we’re better placed to identify the risks you may want to mitigate against.

Our standard policies offer the following cover:*

  • Protection from natural disasters – such as storms, fires, and earthquakes.
  • Public liability cover – up to £2.5 million provided as standard to protect you against injury to guests or damage caused to your property.

  • Domestic appliance cover – guards against water, sewage, or oil damage caused by faulty heating or domestic items.

  • Power surge cover – provided for damage caused by electrical power surges.

  • Alternative accommodation and pitch fees – if damage to your overseas caravan renders it uninhabitable.

  • Year-round insurance – your overseas caravan will be safeguarded whether it’s unoccupied or not.

You can also extend the range of your cover with optional extras:

  • Enhanced accidental damage cover* – you can cover accidental damages caused by family or guests.

  • Enhanced liability cover* – you can extend public liability cover to £5 million.

* Please refer to your policy details, accidental damage cover and enhanced liability cover are optional extras which can be included in your policy. Read our overseas caravan insurance wording for further information about how your policy works and whether restrictions apply.

How much does overseas caravan insurance cost?

Because each policy can be tailored to your personal circumstances, it’s difficult to speculate how much your policy will cost without discussing your needs. However, you should know that it pays to be as prepared when insuring your overseas caravan. The more details we have, the more accurate and extensive your cover.

What’s more, it might benefit you to learn what factors are used to determine your insurance premium:

  • The location of your caravan – a static caravan in an area where flooding is common may attract a higher premium than a home located far from the floodplain.
  • The size of your caravan – larger properties tend to attract higher premiums than smaller static caravans.
  • The age of your caravan – a property in poor condition can be considered risky. Favourable premiums are more likely to be offered to newer properties requiring little maintenance.
  • Type of your caravan – some overseas caravans are more challenging to replace than others due to using rarer construction materials.
  • The value of your caravan – as with brick-and-mortar home insurance, larger prefabricated static caravans are costlier to insure than smaller units.

Public liability insurance means that if a person is injured or their property is damaged while in your caravan, you’re protected against compensation claims. This can be particularly important if you’re planning to rent your caravan or mobile home out to holidaymakers when you’re not there. You also have the option of increasing public liability cover to up to £5 million for additional reassurance.

As with many insurance policies, there is usually an excess charge in the event of a claim, which is detailed in your policy document. Our policy affords protection whether your property is occupied or left vacant, however the extent of your cover will depend on how long your caravan remains unoccupied. In addition, geographical restrictions may apply to your policy, such as earthquake zones.

Please read our policy wording or contact our dedicated team for further details on restrictions.
