Saved by the Insurance
It could have been an absolute disaster for a couple of friends of mine this year when their caravan burnt down in an accidental electrical fire.
Apparently a couple of old wires got crossed and the resulting spark hit a bit of flammable material, and before either of them knew what was happening the whole caravan went up in flames.
Luckily they both escaped unhurt, and managed to grab their most precious possessions – family photographs etc – before jumping out of the van. Neighbours on the caravan park put them up for the night, and although of course it was a horrific and a terrifying experience, it was not an absolute disaster because they had the foresight to have caravan insurance.
Their caravan was sited just outside of the charming Cornish village of Looe, and their insurance paid for them to stay in a hotel in Looe for the rest of their holiday, as well as covering the costs of replacing their static caravan. So all was not lost, and my friends were pretty accepting of their fate as they took their pick of the great choice of hotels in the town.
They had spent many holidays in their caravan, so they know this lovely Cornish area quite well. Of course, normally they would have to drive or walk in from the caravan park, so this horrible accident actually allowed them to enjoy the experience of holidaying in the centre of town.
They chose a hotel on the harbour front, just for the unusual setting. In the mornings they could watch the fishermen setting off for their working day, and during the afternoons they could enjoy seeing the tourists buzzing around the harbour. And, of course, they were right on hand for the great restaurants of this wonderful village.
Having caravan insurance meant that they were rescued from a disaster to a real holiday
