24 ACCEO Membership and Services General Advice
Many people have an element of public liability indemnity included within insurance for car, caravan or home. It is essential that Clubs have such insurance to protect officers and members alike against an accident resulting from perceived negligence whilst engaged in Club activities.
Many site owners now insist on high levels of public liability indemnity and ACCEO has traditionally arranged a policy for it’s member clubs to provide these levels of cover required. Member clubs may be annexed to this policy by contributing to the overall annual premium an amount depending upon the number of caravanning or camping units within the Club.
The policy operates each year from 1st December and pro-rata premiums for new Clubs joining the scheme after that date. The premiums are very competitive within the insurance world and many Clubs join the Association to benefit from this. Contact officers of the Association for details of cover and premium contributions.
Club Equipment Insurance
Clubs acquire much equipment to aid their rallying activities, many moving this equipment about the country in trailers. ACCEO has arranged a policy with possibly the lowest premium rates available, to insure their member clubs equipment and trailers where necessary.
This policy operates from 1st March each year and pro-rata premiums are calculated for Clubs joining the scheme after this date.
