    They win awards every year and are a family concern

    I've insured with them for years, they seem very good, especially if you have any questions about things like Toads. Some insurers don't seem to know anything about motorhomes (or even the English language sometimes) though they will still take your premium.

    AFAIK , they also understand the term 'fulltiming' and will consider cover, (albeit pricey), on a 'case by case' basis ... No other insurer that I am aware of will even consider a 'fulltimer'

    That's good news, I went with them when I bought the MH two years ago and they certainly impressed me on price and cover and their pleasant telephone manner. :thumb:

    This company have taken over the business from Aviva. Aviva act as the underwriters and the policy document is on Aviva/Comfort headed paper.

    I C Choice a site sponsor use them as an Insurer.

    Just renewed with Comfort last week, for the third time. Premium had gone up about £10 compared to last year, but nonetheless very competitive. Have full breakdown, incl Continental use, with them and the total bill was just over £300.

    I wonder if Jim has looked into a discount for members on insurance?

    I have been very satisfied with NFU for about six years and I check prices each renewal. :thumb:

    Fortunately, so far I have not had to put them to the test over a claim ... he says touching wood !

    They also include our toad on the same policy.:BigGrin:

    I've had NFU for donkeys years, and did have an accident while abroad in the RV .. not my fault but the other car was very badly damaged..probably a write off. It was difficult explaining what happened to the French Police and you know how excitable the French can be .. anyways..
    The claim was handled without fuss or bother and I didn't lose any NCD ..

    Still with them with my present car.. they are more expensive than some.. but from my past good experience with them I figured it was worth the bit extra ... you get what you pay for .. and cheap car insurance may not turn out cheap if you have a claim.

    Comfort insurance

    Hi, just reduced my insurance bill for the Hymer from £470 to £253 using Comfort, even managed to get breakdown cover for £58 which is brilliant. :BigGrin:
    Many thanks to the funsters this info..
    Hope this helps others who are looking to renew soon.

    Thanks again:thumb:

    Been with Comfort for years, including the Toad. Once had to claim for a breakdown in France and they were excellent. They also don't seem to penalise existing customers to give discounts to new business.

    We are with Safeguard, they were brilliant last year when someone reversed into the side of us, two big dents in the bodywork, plus cracked window unit.
    They also provide full UK and European breakdown cover and we found them very easy to deal with. If you're a member of any clubs (CC or otherwise) you might get a good deal.
    Safeguard were recommended to us when we bought the mh and they certainly fulfilled our requirements professionally:thumb:
    Also, no annoying "menu options" when you call them either, you get straight through to an operator quickly:thumb:

    Your statement above is not correct.

    http://www.comfort-insurance.co.uk/
    Victor Millwell Insurance is a brokers trading as Comfort Insurance. The cover is underwritten by AVIVA (formerly known as Norwich Union). (AVIVA also own the RAC)


    I have been with them for 5 years. This is my third year full timing. I have found them excellent. The claims are handled will and I have used both the UK and Continental breakdown service and can not fault either.
    We have the Motorhome ans Smart Car insured with them. We also had household insurance with them before we went full time

    comparisons

    Have had 3 quotes today
    1. Safeguard----£350
    2. Saga-----£440
    3 Comfort----£359
    these include European travel and breakdown cover.

    Think saga have priced themselves out of it so its Safeguard or Comfort but I leave decisions to ""she who must be obayed"" (Then if it goes wrong I can blame her)

    Can only vouch for Safeguard as they were brilliant with us last year (see earlier post:cry:) and got us sorted out.

    always read the small print

    Having read the small print for both Safeguard and Comfort, I have opted for Comfort WHY hidden away in small type for Safeguard was the excess, £200 compulsary plus £100 voluntary If I reduced the voluntary the price went up considerably. at least Comfort had it in bold lettering £200 compulsary and thats it.
