Discover trailer tent insurance from Towergate:

365 day European cover

We don’t want you to feel restricted when you travel so if you feel like touring the Europe in your trailer tent then our insurance covers most countries within the EEA. Our cover in Europe is for the full 365 days of the year but there are still a few countries where we can’t provide cover so it’s best to check your policy wording to be sure. If you choose a new for old policy you can go a little further afield but again, make sure you check the geographical exclusions before you travel.

Storm damage

Storm damage may be one of the most common claims on trailer tent insurance so it’s good to know when those rain clouds start grouping overhead; our policy provides cover for damage. This will include damage from weather such as strong winds, lightening, hail stones and more.

RAC towing cover

Imagine an accident on the road which causes damage to your trailer tent. It may leave you unable to tow it back home however, our policy includes RAC for emergency towing assistance. You’ll find the contact number in your policy booklet or you can double check with one of our helpful team, either way we recommend jotting it down before you travel. Please be aware this cover does not extend to towing your car if you have a breakdown.

Accidental damage

It may be a little easier to tow a trailer tent than a full size caravan but accidents can still happen. Our trailer tent policy is designed to cover miss-haps too, if you accidentally bump or scrape yours, the policy will cover repairs.It’s important to remember that like most folding caravan insurance policies, our cover does not include wear and tear or mechanical breakdown but with a little care and maintenance you can usually avoid these kinds of repair.

These are just some of the key features and exclusions, full details will be found in your policy wording. Show policy documents

If you're able to find your way with your trailer tent in tow but you're a little lost when it comes to insuring it, our guide can point you in the right direction. Read on to get to grips with what it all means and find out how to get the most out of your insurance.



UK summer caravanning destinations

Self-sufficiency allows caravan owners to dictate the pace and destination of their holidays more than any other kind of traveller is able to, but being protected is vital.

Trailer Tent Insurance FAQs

What security do I need to cover my trailer tent?

Whilst left unattended you'll be required to protect your trailer tent using one or more security devices. The level of security we recommend depends on the value of your trailer tent, so:
-Under £5k = A wheel clamp
-Between £5k - £15k = A wheel clamp + 1 other security device i.e. a hitch-lock
-£15k plus = We recommend you speak with an adviser, though you still need just 2 devices, 1 or more of them must be considered to be a category 2 device depending on other details like where it's stored.

What is an excess and what are my options?

An excess is the first amount you would pay towards your claim. Our trailer tent insurance policy gives you options to set your excess at £0, £100 or £250. Your excess will also be insured, so if your claim relates to accidental damage, theft, fire or vandalism you will not pay towards the claim. This cover is limited to £250 of excess per year.

Where can I store my trailer tent?

There are several locations where our insurance can cover your trailer tent whilst stored. If you choose to store it at your home then in your garden, on your driveway or in your garage are all suitable but you cannot store your trailer tent on a public road as your insurance will no longer be valid if it gets stolen. If you store it on a site we have some requirements the site must meet so it is deemed secure enough. We ask that parks and caravan storage sites must have a perimeter fence around the storage area and locked gates onto the site. It's often worth speaking with the team to ensure we can help.

What kinds of touring van can you insure?

We can cover; caravans, Airstreams, pop-ups, folding campers, trailer tents and 5th wheelers, just ask our helpful caravan team. In addition we can cover horse trailers but through a different part of Towergate. Click here to view the page.

Can I pay in instalments?

If you would prefer to spread the cost of your policy you have the option of setting up a Direct Debit to pay your premium in equal monthly instalments through our preferred provider, Premium Credit Limited (PCL).

To find out more about PCL and direct debit payments, select Direct Debit.

To understand more about how PCL work together with Towergate, please read our Regulatory Information.
