Innovative AL-KO caravan towing safety aid attracts cut in CIL  insurance premiums

AL-KO International said today that CIL Insurance now offers a 10 percent discount on a CIL caravan insurance* premium if an AL-KO Electronic Stability Control system isfitted to the caravan.

AL-KO ESC is now available for fitment to new caravans and will be available for retrofit to existing caravans with AL-KO brakes, axles and suspension by early 2013.

By CIL Insurance encouraging their members to install AL-KO ESC via cheaper premiums, we see this as a big step in the right direction for safety on our roads, he said.

The revolutionary new AL-KO ESC system is similar to ESC in cars.With the system installed the stability of a caravan under tow is monitored and controlled automatically.
