You may not realise it, but did you know that the premium differences in caravan insurance are large? This also applies to the differences in coverage. Is your caravan already insured and do you want to know if you are insured well and cheap? Compare your caravan insurance and be surprised about the savings and wide coverage with some insurers.

Often owners only find out when their caravan is damaged that it is not properly insured. Unfortunately, this is too late. You would do well to take action before you suffer any damage. We are happy to explain the differences between insurances.

What cover does your caravan insurance offer?

A caravan insurance offers standard coverage against fire and theft. Often the insurer will also pay out for storm damage. Hail damage is a completely different story. The weather is becoming more and more severe. That means more frequent storms and heavy rainfall. Many caravan owners are convinced that their caravan insurance will also cover them for hail damage. This may indeed be the case, but with more and more insurers this is optional. The damage caused by hailstorms can run into thousands of euros. It is therefore advisable to choose a good caravan insurance.

What to look out for when buying caravan insurance?

Especially policyholders who have been with the same insurer for years can save a lot of money by switching. You can also be over- or underinsured in your current caravan insurance. For instance, you might have insured an awning that you no longer use or you may have recently bought a mover for moving your caravan without insuring it. Therefore it is important to check your caravan insurance on a regular basis.

How do I compare my caravan insurance?

Comparing caravan insurance is easy. On Alpina.nl answer a few questions and within minutes you will see what you can save. These are generally questions that can be answered off the top of your head. To avoid overlooking anything, we also ask you about the value of the:

  • Awning
  • Possible extension
  • Contents
  • Mover

What is the best caravan insurance?

We then provide you with an overview of the premiums that insurers charge. We distinguish between:

  • Standard coverage
  • Comprehensive coverage
  • Extra comprehensive cover

We do this to simplify the choice. Under the button "info" you will find more information about the coverage in the policy. This way you can select the cheapest caravan insurance with the coverage that suits your caravan best. Of course you want the widest possible cover, but the premium has to be reasonable.

Hail damage co-insurance and the amount of the deductible

These are important points where caravan insurance policies differ. That is why we give these differences, next to the premiums, a prominent place in the comparison. Including or excluding hail damage insurance makes a big difference. This also applies to the height of the excess. It is better to pay € 10 per year more for a caravan insurance without excess, than to pay € 150 risk in case of damage. In practice, the cheapest insurers often offer the best coverage in comparison.

Separate green card for a trailer

Are you going abroad with a trailer or caravan? Then you may have to apply for a second green card for your trailer or caravan. In the Netherlands, trailers and caravans are (co-)insured on the WA insurance of the towing vehicle. On your green card the code AF is mentioned. Are you going to Germany, Poland or Spain with a trailer or caravan? Then you need a second green card if your trailer or caravan is heavier than 750 kg. These heavy trailers or caravans have their own registration number. Therefore, in these countries you need a second green card with the trailer's or caravan's licence plate. If you need a separate green card for your trailer or caravan, we advise you to apply for a (separate) green card early. Click here for the 8 things you need to know about a green card.

Cancelling your current caravan insurance

Was your current caravan insurance taken out more than one year ago? In that case you can cancel the insurance immediately. You can do this by sending a letter to the insurer in which you indicate that you want to cancel the policy. Officially, this has to be done by registered mail, but these days an e-mail is often sufficient. A few days after cancellation, call the insurer to find out if they have received the cancellation. This will save you the cost of sending it by registered post.

Frequently asked questions about caravan insurance

Is caravan insurance mandatory?

In the Netherlands, insurance is compulsory for motor vehicles, but a caravan cannot propel itself. Therefore, there is no insurance obligation for a caravan. However, it is wise to take out an insurance because in most cases you have paid a considerable amount of money for the caravan. Read more about caravan insurance mandatory>>

What does the new and daily value cover include?

If you cause damage to others with your caravan, this is covered by your WA car insurance. Damage to your caravan caused by fire, explosion, self combustion or storm and hail is not covered. For this you need a separate caravan insurance. For new caravans (till about 5 years old) you can take out a caravan insurance with new value coverage, this can be seen as the All Risks insurance for caravans. For caravans between 5-15 years old you can take out a current value policy. In such case you are maximally insured for the amount your caravan is worth at that time.

Is a green card for a caravan obligatory?

When you take out a car insurance you will always receive a green card, which counts as an international insurance certificate. When you go on holiday abroad with your caravan, it is possible that you need an extra green card for your caravan. Read more about this>

At the ANWB I had to have my self-built camper van inspected before I could take out a camper insurance, this would cost me €200,-. At Diks I have without any problems closed a very good affordable insurance. I recommend them to take out an insurance.
