    motorhome insurance

    its best to do a compare first and see who comes out with the best price Saga came out best for us this year and if your in camping and caravan club RAC arrival can also be the best you just have to get a few quotes good luck :Smile:

    As I've just found out it varies a lot depending on what YOU need.
    Insurance is no problem, I can get fully comp european for abot £200, but the breakdown is a minefield.
    Rac (Arrival) has no prob with age/weight/pets but recovery after an accident is a no no.
    ADAC is no prob with age/weight/ accident recovery, but it seems they only do pets if the driver is dead or too ill to drive?
    Lifesure is cheep insurance & recovery is no prob with weight/ accident etc. but NO pets.
    So it looks like Caravan Guard at the moment, I'm waiting for them to send me the "small print".
    Good luck & let me know if I'm missing something.

    Worth mentioning that RAC Arival you have to be C&CC members so another 35/40 quid for that :Eek!: ADAC only costs £72/3 for full recovery and repatriation flights if too ill to drive -AA provide the cover for them in UK

    We,ve just changed to Suregaurd, its a bit expensive but it comes with AA cover and comes via a recommendation from another motorhomer, who had a lot of touble last year and they, Suregaurd, came up trumps.

    Pleasantly surprised...

    ..how cheap running costs for motorhome are, after the initial purchase shock. Insurance £230 with Comfort. Britannia Rescue cover motorhomes up to 8m. Cover for three vehicles, inc continental for the motorhome, is £120 all-in.

    Thanks to everyone for the input and the results are as follows.

    C&CC joined
    CC joined
    Insurance with Saga (yes we are of that age:Sad:)
    ADAC joined (Barbara was very helpful)

    Now just have to hose down the credit card as it is a bit hot:Sad:

    We were meant to pick up the motorhome today but has been delayed because the towbar has not yet been fitted:Doh:
    Another few days yet

    Caravanguard put me at £631 this year. That is with 3 drivers covered, only me with one SP30, and they couldn't offer better. I've just gone with Campton Insurance for £331 for 3 drivers, recovery and a low excess. :BigGrin:
