Leisure Warranties

Buying or renewing leisure warranties for caravans is easy. What isn’t so easy is knowing which caravan warranty to buy, which warranty companies to buy from and which one’s will meet your needs when the unthinkable happens.

So, Engineer Aftercare caravan warranty have considered two key areas for some advice to help you.

what is a claim limit?

The ‘Claim limit’ is the maximum amount you can claim under your caravan warranty. The most important things are how much can you claim and how often can you claim that, because sometimes what you see is not what you get. Firstly lets look at the claim value. One leisure warranties company displayed up to £2000 claim limit, which looks good until you read in the details that you can only claim once! Not so good if you claim £300 for a floor de-lamination problem in April and cant claim again if you need to in October, so the limit is only good if you can claim more than once. Also, there is very little in a Caravan you cant repair or replace for under £1000, even using an AWS approved workshop. Secondly, find a leisure warranties provider that permits multiple claims in any year, because then you have real peace of mind.

Who can repair my caravan?

This is another really important aspect of leisure warranties, because when the caravan was new the manufacturer only allowed an AWS approved workshop to affect any repairs to the Habitation section. So, especially for the Habitation section, use a company that only uses an approved and properly trained engineer. Some leisure warranties allow anyone who is VAT registered to repair things in a caravan, now that is fine for a Motorhome engine, gearbox or electrics but a caravan habitation section includes things like gas heating and cooking, lighting, and water, wastewater systems and more which a car mechanic will not understand or be familiar with.

So, these two important aspects should be considered when buying a leisure warranty for your caravan. For more guidance or to get in touch go to www.engineerinsuranceandaftercare.com contacts page and get in touch.
