CRYSTAL is the latest membership option from CaravanID, introduced in direct response to feedback from existing and potential members who expressed the need for a less overt solution that maintains the core security benefits of CaravanID membership. Competitively priced at just £15 for as long as you own your van,
Crystal is a ‘registration only’ package that opens up the community to many more people. Crystal not only address a gap between existing CaravanID protection and other ‘registration only’ schemes, it betters them.
Crystal is a whole lot more than adding your van to a list, it provides active, real-time protection, unique identification, fast free lookup and more.Crystal does not include the usual decals of other membership levels but it does include a set of discreet, smart window stickers, our smart dot and tag, and a registration / membership ID card that also serves as photo ID in times of need. Of course information about your van will be added to the CaravanID database.
Because your membership ID comprises of the last 6 digits of your VIN, existing external VIN markings in addition to the window stickers can be used to identify and lookup your van quickly and easily.
Smart Window Stickers
Your pack will include 8 new style stickers that attach to the inside if your windows. Reverse printed in black on a clear adhesive background, these are extremely discreet yet totally legible, even through tinted windows. The secure QR code on the stickers can easily be scanned with a compatible mobile phone instantly displaying the public information for your van.
You will also receive a secure Near Field Communication (NFC) tag and dot. The larger tag is typically displayed on the inside of your habitation door window serving as a visual deterrent and providing a scannable ID point, even through the window. The smaller dot should be hidden somewhere accessible inside your van as a covert ID point. If you wish you can put your dot location in the private area of your profile so the police know where to look.
Registration / ID Card
Instead of a cumbersome paper registration document, CaravanID provides all the essential registration information for you and your van on a more practical card that fits in your wallet or purse, what’s more it shows your name and photograph, enabling you to confirm your identity if required.
Database / Web Presence
Your van will be added to the CaravanID database. Essential, non-sensitive information about your van will be included in the public area of our website providing fast and free lookup. Your personal and contact information will never be shown publicly but may be securely accessed by the police in an emergency.
YOU choose what information is shown publicly or shared with the police when you join. Unlike full memberships the information you submit cannot be updated live but changes may be requested at any time, subject to a small administration fee. These are typically completed within 48 hours of your request being received.
