Many more caravanners are stepping up their efforts to take out insurance as a result of the recent cold weather, it has been noted.

Insure My Caravan has witnessed growth in its customer base as owners become weary of problems occurring within their properties.

Meanwhile, there is the added risk of accidents taking place on roads, with caravanners aware of the increased risk that the snowy and icy conditions pose.

Managing director of the company David Quick said: "We have found that there are many people who have suffered badly this winter with the amount of snowfall we have got here in the UK.

"People are having to make claims, or are looking for caravan insurance to ensure they have cover should conditions worsen or accidents occur on journeys."

Among the things that caravan insurance covers are theft of a vehicle, any damage caused to another caravan and the loss of any belongings kept inside.

There is also the likelihood that those who own a cheaper caravan may be able to take advantage of reduced caravan insurance quotes.
