    After buying my first motorhome today I trawled through all the web sites to try to find a policy that would include my 22 year old daughter. Lots of old posts and dead links on the way. I tried the NFU....... no they don't want to know. adrianflux had a reasonable offer providing the motorhome was in my daughters name. But the best deal I found was with http://www.safeguarduk.co.uk/ . It included unlimited europe cover. And Europe breakdown cover and in my name as the owner/proposer.

    From your trawling's you will have noticed that somewhere in the annals of time a law was passed preventing under 25s from owning or driving a Motor home:Doh:
    No one knows who wrote it, just that insurance companies follow it to the letter

    WHY???? they cant have a bad record driving them cos it seems it's always been like that:RollEyes:

    A rare find well done:thumb:

    That's really interesting because when I rang Safeguard earlier this year the woman on the phone categorically told me that they won't insure under 25's!! We had our new motorhome changed to 3.5T especially so that our daughter would be able to drive it on her licence, she is also 22. Could you pm me some details, cost ? Regards Michelle

    I have just done an online quote with Safeguard adding my daughter as a named driver.......£400 extra. Don't think I will bother for the sake of a few journeys that she would be driving on. She will have to remain as navigator :Laughing:
