Caravan and Motorhome Club highlights 50 years of insurance expertise with products reflecting members’ changing requirements

With 110 years of inspiring people to have adventures in the UK and abroad and 50 years insurance experience, the Caravan and Motorhome Club offers an unrivalled range of bespoke insurance policies for its million-plus members, tailored to reflect their ever changing needs.
 
Harvey Alexander, Director of Marketing for the Caravan and Motorhome Club, said that a priority for the Club is to make members aware of the extent of different policies available and the breadth of coverage provided. “Many members naturally think we just offer motorhome and caravan insurance.  However, our range extends far beyond that to include car, breakdown/recovery and holiday insurance as well as home and pet insurance,” he said.
 

Controlling Legionella in Caravan and Holiday Parks

Controlling Legionella in Caravan and Holiday Parks

Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia. It is caused by the legionella bacteria which can develop in any system where water is stored at temperatures favourable to its growth; water tanks, calorifiers, hot and cold-water systems, pools and spas.

On caravan and holiday parks, the statutory duty holder for the premises is responsible for making sure the site is risk assessed, and ensuring that regular checks are carried out to prevent the conditions occurring that might allow the bacteria to grow. Failing to comply can result in serious health implications and even death in some cases. Businesses also risk severe fines or, in the worst cases, prosecution for involuntary manslaughter.
