What to look for when choosing camping insurance

Before you buy camping insurance, you'll want to make sure that the option you choose provides the peace of mind that you're looking for.

Whether you need tent insurance for a small shelter or trailer tent insurance for a larger structure that provides various home comforts, E&L's policies are the perfect choice.

You should also make sure that the policy you choose covers you for every eventuality. Here at E&L, all of our policies include personal accident and public liability, as well as new-for-old replacement on items less than two years old.

If replacement equipment is required, we'll also reimburse you for any rental costs incurred.

And if you are planning a trip outside of the UK, our camping insurance policies provide European cover for up to 90 days per year. You can also extend your plan to include destinations worldwide for a nominal fee.

There are two payment options available with our camping insurance: yearly and monthly. The monthly option is based on the lunar calendar (28 days) and offers a higher level of cover than the annual plan.
