    I have travelled many times from UK to Greece in a VW camper. I now need to insure a small, low mileage, 1997 Nu-Venture motorhome for this year. My partner & I are both over 60 and we intend for our motorhome to stay in Europe for between 6 & 11 months. From experience, our mileage will be about 8000 miles per annum. Where do I start looking for an insurance company that will help me?

    Agree with Carol.. Comfort are are good place to start .. they also do insurance for fulltimers.. but that requires a UK address .. as do all UK insurers..

    Your info says you are located in Greece ?

    Several people have recommended Comfort so that's a good place to start. I like to get more than one quote, so other ideas would be helpful too. Any dealt with Adrianflux?

    I live much of the year in Greece and my partner lives in Scotland. She is the registered owner.

    Try Safeguard but don't use the fulltime word! They give 365 days a year cover in Europe so if you have a UK address no problems!

    Amazing advice

    I'm not 65, but am looking for long term trip insurance to travel around Europe and go climbing! The tips above are SO helpful! I had already tried Adrian Flux, who won't do long term/full time, and was already verging on despair as the trip begins imminently and insurance could be a major spanner in the works. Will try the companies suggested above and report back for anyone else in this position. Horray for FUN. :Laughing:
