TV Licensing have issued a reminder to caravan and mobile home owners to check their TV licence is valid for their holiday accommodation. A number of holidaymakers may be using TVs in their caravans, unaware that they are not covered.

While touring caravans are often covered by the owner’s home TV licence, those planning to watch live television programmes in their caravan, static caravan, motorhome, mobile home or moveable chalet will need to take care. The owner’s home TV licence is only valid for use in these types of holiday accommodation when the home TV will never be used at the same time as that in the caravan. For example, if a family member is staying at home and will use the TV, a separate licence will be required for use in the holiday home. If the home TV will not be used during the holiday, a declaration form must be filled in and returned to TV Licensing.

TV Licensing decided to take action to raise awareness of the terms and conditions following a 25% increase in caravan holidays in May. With the penalties for watching TV without a valid licence currently set at a fine of up to £1,000 or prosecution, confirmation should be sought from TV Licensing if the holidaymaker is in any doubt.

Be warned we don't want a fine while enjoying our holidys........
