Sometimes, you need a place where you can truly unwind. Somewhere remote or simply secluded and peaceful where you’ll have little in the way of disruption.

As wonderful as kids are - whether they’re your own children, grandchildren or someone else's - it’s nice to know you can, in fact, have a break from them altogether.

In the world of campervans and motorhomes, this is known as an adult-only campsite. Secluded, well-maintained sites that are quiet, peaceful and, most importantly, exclusively for adults.

From beautiful walking trails, immaculately kept grounds and luxury-like amenities in the form of lodges and heated toilets, most of these places offer a brilliant mix of both the camping and glamping experience.

Some even feature private luxury trailers and lodges that you can rent if you’re keen to try the RV life on for size. And, what better place to do this than on a clean, quiet and perhaps less hectic campsite?

You’ve found the place; now find the right motorhome insurance!

Motorhoming is a unique way of life that offers so many rewarding and wonderful experiences. As such, a motorhome is not your usual run-of-the-mill vehicle.

Not only does it ensure you get from A to B, it also carries your precious belongings that you’ll need on the way.

Regular car insurance wouldn’t give you the extended coverage you need for a vehicle of this type.

That’s where specialist motorhome insurance comes in.

These kinds of policies offer cover specifically for recreational vehicles, which are heavier on the road, and also contents insurance to protect the valuables you take along for the ride.

Additional features of these policies can include*:

  • Unlimited cover for EU countries
  • Club membership discounts
  • Personal effects cover of up to £3,000
