When you are looking for caravan insurance quotes, it is important that you differentiate between the different types of caravans.
There are two types of caravans. The first one is a static caravan. This is a caravan that is generally situated in a fixed location throughout the year, such as in a camping site. The point here is that it is not really subject to road accidents. Instead it is at risk similar to houses. It has the main facilities such as power, water etc which is provided by the camping site. However, it is also subject to adverse weather conditions, falling trees or debris that are blown around in heavy finds and other more long term damage such as weathering, decay etc. Therefore, it has its own type of insurance.
A touring caravan is often on the road throughout the holiday season and therefore is subject to the same risks, such as accidents, as a car. Therefore, additional insurance cover will have to be taken out before moving a touring caravan on the road. With some insurance policies, you will be able to amend the existing cover and add the touring caravan on it for the time period needed. That is obviously best and would work out cheapest. So the first place to check whether this is the case is with your existing insurance company. Otherwise, you will have to take out an insurance policy that is separate to your car insurance for your touring caravan.
