    Had a call from Darren at AIB this morning and he's been looking at my motorhome insurance which is due in a couple of weeks. Aviva had gone up to £350 from £310 last year so we've gone with LV who cover one of the cars, for £300 including European breakdown and 90 days abroad which is normally enough for us. Yes I suppose I could have shopped around but I was at a disadvantage as I was checking the loo at the time. :rolleyes:

    We use LV for car and scooter but not motorhome. They actually told us we'd be better going with a specialist insurer.

    But what is a specialist insurer? Comfort who I did use and many others still do, insure with Aviva as AIB do, they are not particularly specialist on motorhomes although I'm open to correction, as always. :)

    When we spoke to them they didn't seem to WANT to cover our motorhome but when they said specialist assume they meant a company like Aviva who seem to do most MH cover. Ours is with Aviva via Motorhome Facts policy.

    LV do cover motorhomes but through a subsidiary called Highway Insurance, Highway policies are only available through an authorised broker.

    They didn't say they DON'T cover motorhomes but advised us to use a specialist insurer. Like I said previously they didn't seem to WANT to cover the motorhome.

    Sorry, I was only trying to assist you if you wanted to use an LV company to insure your motorhome. :confused:

    LV staff tell you as they did me, that they don't insure motorhomes because, as LV they don't, they will suggest you use a specialist.
    However, Highway is a specialist and is an LV company, though only available through authorised brokers. I hope that clarifies things for you.
