    We're picking up our new to us MH next week - 2008 Swift Bolero 630EW:D:D:D. We've caravanned since God was a boy insuring with the Caravan Club. Has anyone any experience of insuring a motorhome with them? Their quote was pretty competitive.

    Caravan Club always come out extremely expensive for us.
    So on that basis, no, not got any experience.

    We're insured with Caravan Guard

    Last time I checked with CC the quote was competitive but the excess was a lot higher than elsewhere.

    We're insured through CC having changed from C&CC the year before.
    From memory, CC were the cheapest of around 10 - 12 we tried by not far off £100.

    We caravaned for 20 plus years and had insurance through CC, when we got the new mh in March we tried to go through Comfort but they wouldn't insure as the mh is kept on a site, so we are back withCC.

    Caravan Club do their own excellent insurance for caravans (especially loved the NCD) but for motorhome insurance they just forward you to a broker so not so good. About time they looked after their growing number of motorhome members the same way as they do those with caravans!
    Ironically we are insured with Caravanguard who do good motorhome insurance.

    Just had 3 quotes for my renewal

    Comfort £368 including European breakdown
    Safeguard £444 including European breakdown (my current provider)
    CC £338 not including European breakdown cover (which I can purchase elsewhere for circa £60)

    So for me Comfort are cheapest

    It's good that Caravan Club motorhome insurance works for some but for our area & the level of cover we needed the policy offered wasn't good or cheap but that was late 2013 so may be better now. Obviously a good idea to ring round all the ones suggested & compare prices but watch the small print to make sure that you have the best cover that suits your needs.:)

    When I needed cover for longer trips the guy at Caravan Guard, without refusing to quote, suggested that they don't like long trip cover so I shopped around and found Comfort offered the best deal. CC were extortionate! Comfort have since sorted out a couple of problems for me and are still competitive. I'd rather deal with someone I trust than change for the sake of a few pounds. However everybody's circumstances are different so I would still advocate checking round (though I was told by one broker that many use the same underwriters).

    Still mooching around trying to get a quote from a number of Insurance companies. Cheapest by far was AIB Insurance - I worked my way through the usual online quote and they inturn said they would reply by phone. 24 hours later they called back and after going through the information again offered me a very good quote less than £300. However, and this is the bit that bothers me, when I asked for confirmation of the quote and details by email and they said that they do not email quotes and were happy to confirm said quote if I called again ? Why in this day and age would a company that ask you to request a quote online then refuse to confirm the results online...? Still searching here....

    Had the same issue with AIB who refused to provide written confirmation of their quote.(n)
    When they advised this I moved on. They subsequently phoned back two or three times and refused on every occasion to provide written confirmation.:confused:
    Glad they did as got cheaper elsewhere.:)
