    Take cover under canvas says Shield Insurance

    Camping is on the increase with recent figures from Shield Total Insurance suggesting around 1.2 million people will book into a campsite this summer.

    Whilst the British public’s renewed interest in camping can, in part, be attributed to a need to find cheaper ways to holiday, we shouldn’t underestimate the pleasure of spending sunny days in the great outdoors and balmy nights under canvas.

    Camping generally costs less than most family package holidays abroad but the initial outlay can be considerable, particularly if you’re investing in good quality equipment to see you through several Summers.

    Tent sales have seen a year-on-year increase from pop-up two man tents used (and abused) at festivals to large ten-berth luxury ‘domes’ with separate bedrooms and living quarters. Tents can cost anything from between £30 to £1000, then there is a plethora of other equipment required such as stoves, pans, kettles, cooking utensils, portable fridges, generators, seating, tables and sleeping bags.

    Whilst good quality equipment is built to last nothing is immune to accidental damage caused by floods, storms or fire, or from theft or vandalism.

    Taking out tent or camping insurance will safeguard your investment and also your holiday. Cover provided by Shield includes the cost of emergency overnight accommodation and hire of a replacement tent if yours becomes unusable after an insured incident.

    Even items that are the most vulnerable to damage, such as awnings, poles and pegs, can be included within the policy, as well as personal possessions such as luggage, audio equipment, general household goods and personal possessions.

    Tent Insurance or Camping Insurance starts from just £31.80. For more information or to obtain a no obligation on line quote visit www.shieldtotalinsurance.co.uk

    • Vango Nemesis 200
      By marlonbarlow · Posted
      Hi all, I'm buying a new mid range 4 season tent this week, I've looked at the Wild Country Trisar 2d which I liked, but I've found the vango nemesis 200 with a hundred pounds off, in a deal online I can buy it with a vango inflatable mat and a footprint for 180, I feel this is a bargain but I can't find any reviews online for the tent, does anyone know anything about it?
