Storing your caravan overseas

If you would like to store your caravan overseas, you should check your insurance cover first as the majority of policies will only cover caravans that are stored in the UK.

The following company provides cover for caravans stored overseas: Canpius UK Speciality Limited (formerly K. Drewe Insurance Brokers Ltd)

Telephone: 0345 456 57 58
www.canopiusbrokeruk.com

Most European countries require caravans/trailers to be registered in their own right and to have their own registration number. This means that you will find it very difficult to sell your caravan unless you bring back to the UK.

Officially caravans can only be left in another EU country for a maximum of six months (before they need to be registered). If you plan to leave your caravan for longer than six months without officially registering it you need to ensure that you have paperwork to prove that you paid VAT when you originally purchased the caravan in the UK.

There is also the question of validity of the manufacturer's warranty for caravans less than three years old if the supplying dealer does not carry out annual servicing.

We have provided some information on storage facilities in France and Spain below, however if you are looking to store your caravan in other European countries, or in an area of France or Spain that is not covered by our list, you will need to contact the campsites directly to ask if storage facilities are available.

You can also ask for recommendations and suggestions on our overseas touring community pages on Club Together.

Inclusion in the following list does not signify that these sites have either been vetted or approved by The Caravan Club. Some, but not all, will offer bed and breakfast facilities, meals, advance siting, etc. Members will need to contact the sites directly regarding availability, facilities, charges, etc.
