Bringing a caravan or motorhome
The current legislation put in place by the Jersey authorities requires that all visitors travelling to the Island with a caravan or motorhome must be in possession of a valid permit. In order to obtain a quote or make a reservation, passengers must go through one of the campsites in Jersey participating in the scheme or, if a registered member, via the Camping and Caravan Club.
Duration of Stay
Maximum of one month per caravan/motorhome
Type of Unit/Size
Width: Towed caravan including the towing vehicle or motor home 2.3m (this includes any fitting on or attached to the vehicle but excludes mirrors and indicators).
Length: Caravan 6.7m (excluding the means of attachment to the towing vehicle). Motorhome 9.3m. Caravans exceeding 6.7m in length may be considered for carriage on the traditional ferry, but this is not guaranteed.
Length of Combination: Caravan and towing vehicle 16.5m (to include any projection to the front or rear of the vehicle).
Circulation on Island: Visiting Caravans on a permit are restricted to one journey to and one journey from the campsite to the harbour. Caravans must remain on the designated site for the period of the permit.
Special dispensation has been given allowing motor homes to circulate in the Island on a daily basis but must return to the designated campsite each night. Drivers should be aware that many of Jersey’s roads are narrow and may have limited access. Cars used for towing caravans may be used in the normal way on the Island’s roads.
Display of Permit: The permit must be displayed in the window of the unit clearly showing the dates for which the permit is valid.
Ownership/Insurance: Full third party insurance must be in force for the full duration of the stay and documents proving ownership must be carried.
Sewage: Jersey campsites do not currently have ‘drive over’ drains for blackwater sewage
