Chipping Norton Oxon, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 29, 2011 -- The announcement of the additional national holiday, taking place on June 5th 2012 to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee has led to the May bank holiday moving to the 4th June 2012, giving the British public a glorious four day holiday without needing to touch their holiday allowance. This long weekend will have many caravan owners hitting the road to destinations around the country to truly make the most out of the time off. With this in mind, appropriate caravan insurance is a must.
Taking a caravan away during busy periods can leave owners vulnerable in the face of thieves. They will be fully aware of the abundance of important and valuable belongings holiday makers will be leaving within the confines of their caravan, and with an influx of motorhomes parking up in caravan sites across the country, opportunists may strike.
David Quick, Managing Director of insurance specialist Insure My Caravan urges people to safeguard their caravan and the contents within it if they are planning to get away at any point, including the 2012 national holiday:
"The expectant surge of bookings for caravan sites up and down the country will undoubtedly lead to unwanted interest in the caravans within the grounds so with this in mind it is of great importance that your caravan and the valuables within it are protected through an appropriate insurance policy.
It is all too easy to get swept away in booking the site, preparing the caravan and buying the holiday essentials and before you know it you are on the road without appropriate insurance, leaving you at the mercy of thieves and accidental damage."
For caravan enthusiasts looking to get in early and book their preferred caravan site, the advice is clear; take a few minutes out of the day to go through an existing policy and discover its expiry date to avoid unnecessary costs and distress whilst taking advantage of 2012's extra holiday.
From Windermere to Weymouth, take the time to research security if unfamiliar with the caravan site in question and talk to fellow caravan enthusiasts to discover some the most reputable UK hotspots.
Keep personal finances and caravans protected during next year's national holiday by choosing an appropriate caravan insurance policy from a trusted and experienced provider.
