What types of caravan insurance policies are there in Victoria?

There are three main types of caravan insurance policies to choose from:

  • Comprehensive: This type of policy covers you for a lot, including accidental and intentional damage, storm, flood, fire (including bushfires), towing costs, locks and keys and much more.
  • Third Party Fire & Theft: This mid-range policy covers you if you damage someone else's property with your caravan and for fire and theft. However, this is the bare minimum most policies will cover you for and many also include services like earthquake cover, emergency accommodation if you breakdown, and even cover for solar panels and TV antennas.
  • Third Party Property Only: If you hit or damage someone's property with your caravan, this type of policy can provide up to $20 million in legal liability. It doesn't generally cover you for much else, for instance, damage to your own caravan.

What affects the cost of caravan insurance in Victoria?

Caravan insurance costs vary depending on factors such as where you live, the value of your caravan, the level of cover you choose and how often you use your caravan. Other reasons include but are not limited to:

  • The age of the caravan
  • What the caravan is used for
  • The address of where you normally park the caravan
  • The value of any extra benefits you've included in your policy, such as annexe-cover.
  • Your claims history
  • Your previous insurance history

What is the best caravan insurance policy in Victoria?

Unfortunately, there's no one "best" policy, especially when it comes to caravans. That's because everyone's needs are different. However, the following list outlines some of the common features drivers in Victoria should consider getting covered.

  • Collisions. Accidents are common in Victoria, so if you have an expensive caravan, it might be worth getting comprehensive cover to properly protect your caravan.
  • Natural disaster. From bushfires to storms, Victoria's weather can be unpredictable, and with global warming, it's only getting worse. Protect your caravan from the elements with comprehensive or third party fire and theft cover.
  • Theft. Victorians reported 53,831 incidents of theft from a motor vehicle in the last 12 months, according to 2020 statistics. The most common areas for theft were Reservoir, Dandenong and Frankston. Protecting your caravan and its contents then, could provide the peace of mind you need.
  • Lay-up. If your caravan sits in the garage for any extended period of time, you might be eligible for lay-up cover. This is a good way to lower your premiums when you're not on the road.
