Visit the Saga Summer Caf at the Boat, Caravan & Outdoor Show

19-27 February at Birmingham NEC for a chance to win an Outdoor Sports Holiday in Tuscany

Saga offer free security guides for boat and caravan owners

Heading for the open road or sailing off into the sunset is becoming increasingly popular with caravan sales showing an increase of over 22% in 2004, against the same period in 2003,* and over half a million people in the UK now owning leisure boats**. Celebrities such as Jamie Oliver and Melinda Messenger have helped to make touring 'cool' again while the traditional view of the UK as a seafaring nation has never been so true.

This year as many as 150,000 enthusiasts are expected to visit the Boat, Caravan & Outdoor Show at the NEC, Birmingham, 19-27 February and Saga is inviting visitors to this year's show to visit the Saga Summer Caf and enter a free prize draw for an Outdoor Sports Holiday in Tuscany***.

For those thinking of buying a new boat or caravan Saga has produced two free guides on security and maintenance and includes advice on recommended security devices and the best way to identify your property by security markings.

For information on Saga Caravan Insurance or to request a copy of the Caravan Security Guide call 0800 015 4407 or call 0800 015 3360 for information on Saga Boat Insurance or to request a copy of the Boat Security Guide. Information can also be found on
