Compulsory fire insurance for caravans
According to information that has already been sent to you, your caravan parked on our campsite must be insured in the canton of Vaud. Indeed, the law (LAI) mentions in article 27:
Anyone in possession of movable property located in the canton is required to insure it with the Cantonal Insurance Establishment (ECA). This obligation does not extend to movable property brought into the canton and already insured with concessionary companies in Switzerland, provided that the owner presents the policy to the ECA which will validate it or not. In the event of non-validation, these goods must be insured with the ECA. When the policy expires and at the latest five years after their introduction in the canton, they must be insured with the ECA.
Persons who are not in a situation as mentioned above and who refuse the establishment of a movables insurance policy are liable to a fine of CHF 50.- to CHF 5000.-.
Persons who have not yet insured their equipment are requested to take out insurance as prescribed. Forms are available at the campsite reception. The premium rate is particularly advantageous: CHF 4.- per year, for CHF 1000.- of insured value.
