What insurance risks do holiday park customers face in winter?

holiday park in the winter, insurance risks

This month, Leisuredays Business Development Manager Steve Parker looks at the insurance risks faced by holiday park customers in winter.

Each winter, both park owners and insurance brokers often brace themselves for stormy weather or freezing temperatures.

Unfortunately holiday caravans are not as well insulated as our homes and seaside parks can bear the brunt of turbulent weather.

Here at Leisuredays, our most common winter insurance claims are almost always weather-related. Storm damage was the top holiday caravan insurance claim last winter, accounting for 20 per cent of all holiday caravan claims.

Protecting key people

Protecting key people

Any organisation in the caravan and holiday park sectors will have its physical assets insured, that’s a no brainer. But it’s surprising how many haven’t thought about key person insurance.But the loss of a senior employee, director or shareholder could have just as big an impact on the business as fraud, vandalism, fire or theft.


Business protection insurance is there to safeguard the business against the effects of the loss of a key person.If someone dies suddenly or has a serious illness or accident, there will be an undoubted impact on profits and day to day trading.And in addition to all this disruption, the organisation might not be able to repay a business loan.

London, UK - Two in five caravanners and campers have admitted taking enormous risks with their lives by bringing outdoor gas appliances inside as a result of the unpredictable British weather, according to a new survey by CORGI Homeplan.  


Millions are bringing lit barbecues inside their caravans, revealing a shocking lack of understanding of the risks involved when using gas cookers and barbecues. Even when their flames are extinguished, these appliances can all emit deadly carbon monoxide. A further two thirds of caravanners did not know that carbon monoxide can still be produced after a flame is extinguished.
