Have been with them for several years. Always found them helpful, but (thankfully) I have had no claims against them.

Hi Roger
I am with them, I had a little bump in Barcelona this year, Phoned them from Spain to inform them straight away they ask if i needed to to towed etc but fortunately it was not required, when I got back home they soon sorted out the paperwork, I think they are good hope this helps. Pete:thumb:

After becoming immobilised in the New Forest I requested help from them.
A guy turned up in a small van, opened the bonnet, closed the bonnet. Looked in the fuse box.
Sucked his teeth, tutted several times. Said he would request a suitable tow truck/low loader and then vanished! So I never did get the chance to test Caravan Guard.

Being a bit (?) peeved I then contacted Fiat Camper Assistance. They were brilliant,honest.

They provided hotel accommodation, meals, taxis and a hire car.

I have been insured with Caravan Guard for some years and did have a very expensive claim. Apart from the incompetent Assessor the company were quite good at the end and I still remain with them even after my Blog I submitted on hear.::bigsmile:

PS ensure you inform them of all security measures you have as this assists with discounts don't mention them and they will not ask you.

Always learning
4 years back they refused to insure me if I pulled my car with an A frame.
They blamed the underwriters.
I thought it would be the thin end of the wedge and other insurers would follow suit but thankfully not.
Just wondered if any one else had any similar issues

Been with them 3 years and so far so good, when a Frenchman bumped me back in April I called them and they where helpful on the phone, happily I sorted the damage myself for under the excess cost.

I'm a newbie
Have received my renewal quote, I phoned to ask if my tracker warranted discount to be informed that as the new models from companies come onto the market the newer tracker systems are given policy discount and the older ones become obsolete. My vehicle is a Elddis Autoquest on a 16 plate and the tracker is out of date by at least 2 years so Caravan Guard told me today and that at present there is only 3 certain models from 3 manufacturers given tracker discount therefor no discount for mine, I was told all insurance companies do this, so why pay tracker companies yearly fees of many £ s to make less risk for the insurance company ?
Has any members got experience of this when renewing "
