Our plan has always been to extend the CaravanID community beyond the UK and into mainland Europe. To facilitate this, we have added a country prefix to the membership ID numbers. The numeric part will still be six unique digits, but it will be prefixed with a two-letter international identification code ie: GB-123456 for Great Britain, FR-123456 for France and so on. This will enable us to reissue numbers in each country, avoiding the need for additional numeric digits and maintaining a simple to read and remember format.
All countries will use the same website and lookup with automatic language translations available. This ensures that members in Europe will be able to check your van when you are abroad, likewise you will be able to check European vans visiting the UK making the CaravanID community truly international.
For those of you who’s numbers were issued prior to the prefix there is no need to worry. Your current number will continue to function as normal on lookups etc. If you change your van in the future and need new decals, we will add the suffix to your number (if you wish). There will also be an option for existing members to purchase the new decal packs at a discounted price from the CaravanID shop.
Once again, we have listened to the feedback from our members and made a few enhancements. Some of you suggested our original decals were a bit too ‘industrial’ looking, that they needed to mention CaravanID so people knew where to look them up and that they were simply too big for some vans. So, for 2021 we will be offering our new and compact decal designs with a resized option for smaller campervans. They now incorporate the website and of course the new country prefix: –
These will continue to be made from high quality, tamper resistant, UV resistant and reflective vinyl in a choice of colours to suit your van’s livery.
Many of you have asked for specific or bespoke decals that whilst practical, would not be to everyone’s taste and would add unnecessary cost if included in the standards packs. That said we don’t want to deprive you so we will now be offering a number of optional decals and stickers via our online shop that you can purchase and add to your van.
This is just a sample of what is available so be sure to check out our shop at
We do have scope to provide something completely bespoke, just ask.
Another addition to all packs is a CID Dot. Using NFC technology simply hide this somewhere accessible in your van. Tap it with your mobile phone (NFC must be turned on) and it will take you directly to your CaravanID lookup page.
You can securely store the location of your dot on your profile page, this has the advantage of letting the police know where it is as an additional means of identification.
Does not require batteries, recharging or expensive scanning equipment.
If any existing member would like a CID Dot please send us a request via the contact page. There is no charge.
We’ve been working closely with UK police forces and other relevant agencies to make CaravanID a workable tool for them in their battle against theft prevention and detection.
Although it will not affect your experience of using CaravanID, we have agreed to provide the police with secure access to members contact details enabling them to contact you quickly should the need arise.
Access is granted to specific people within each force or agency, not to individual officers and is subject to ‘acceptable use’ and ‘confidentiality’ agreements.
The information available to the police are the contact details you have supplied so we would ask that you ensure your profile is complete and up to date.
Taking advantage of our new decals, we are now offering a choice of memberships packs with decals and prices to suit your particular van and budget starting from just £45. For example, the decals for campervans are a more appropriate size for smaller vehicles. There are also a selection of additional decals available from our online shop to truly make your pack bespoke.
