We've just insured our new to us van with Comfort. We've been with them for five years and think their quotes are pretty good. This time, for the first time, they asked if we were planning to rent out our house and travel for long periods. They also said that our insurance only covers us for 90 days outside of the UK. We're planning to cross over to France mid September and just come back when we've had enough. We're not likely to want to stay away for more than 90 days so I didn't want to pay extra on the off chance but who knows? We might love it so much that we stay longer. Does it work to phone the insurers and ask for an extension if we do want to stay longer?
