    Sorry, John - much as I dis-like having to burst your balloon - but you will not get insurance as a full-timer!

    No post-code means no quote - quite simple. :Angry:

    You have to learn to bend the truth and borrow someone's post code. :Eek!:

    And beware telling anybody about becoming a full-timer - insurance companies read this forum as well as the rest of us. :Eeek:

    Hi John ..

    have to agree with Dick.. also if you mention 'full time' to any insurance company the information is then on file and it may be available to other insurance companies and brokers.

    Comfort Insurance have said they will consider insuring a full timer on a 'case by case basis' .. the last quote I saw from them would have bought tears to a glass eye .. :Eeek:

    Search 'Comfort Insurance' it should throw the thread up ..

    Good luck.. and welcome to the 'bent world' of the full timer :Cool:

    Jim

    Never mind 'full time' anyone want to recommend the best insurer for 3 months in UK (At permanent address with post code and landline) and 9 months on 'Le Continent'

    The two I've tried so far have said 8 months abroad only, wondering if this is some kind of insurance industry 'standard'

    Safeguard told me today when i took our insurance out that they cover upto 12 months abroad, not that i wanted it but i specfically said coversure offer 8 months what is yours and their reply was, our is 12 months you can stay abroad if you like.

    Dont quote me on it but that was what they said, plus they came out £30 cheaper than the others in the end.

    I spoke to Safeguard last month when we renewed our insurance and they confirmed that as long as our van is legal we can stay in Europe for as long as we want. Obviously if you need an MOT you need to be in UK for at least 1 day a year. That is all they require.
    Some insurance companies wil give you about 8 months but with each trip having a limited stay of 90 or so days but Safeguard have no such limitations.

    You need to have a residential address in UK but you don't need to spend the majority of your time there.

    all insurance taken out in eorope covers you all year in other euro territory. but may only be the minimum for that country. its a sham,e here in uk only a few insurers even acknowledge the fact. even less will give fully comp. if you are over the magic 50. try saga. i can recomend them for sorting out foreign accident probs. but ashame now dont c over 5ers. very prompt n friendly service. mine got hit 2 winters ago in portugal by drunk driver, we found the car took details n police report n drove home saga repaired quickly n satisfactory. now sorted other drivers fault. give them a try .:thumb::thumb:
