    i have been with safeguard since getting the motorhome and have had no problems they seem to be very helpful and its almost a personal service you receive from them.
    break down cover is included free with my policy with them.

    toss up

    It was a toss up between Comfort and Safeguard but we chose Comfort:thumb: Price was roughly the same but I think it was the amount of excess that swung it Always read the small print!!:thumb:

    were with safeguard and have been for years with excellent service...if you dont claim in the first few months they actually give you cash back. This varies if they have a promotion or if you haggle for more on renewal or taking out the policy. most ive had is £75 and the least £25, but its often between £40 and £50. so in effect you can discount that from the cost of the years premium

    Just left Caravan guard to Comfort, after 2 years from new they banged my premium up £50 despite my m/h moving from the new for old bracket, 2000 miles per annum an another years no claims and whacking up the excess from 200 to £300. When the renewal came in and I said I would shop around their attitude was you must do what you must do, don't believe in customer loyalty, I just saved £70 by switching!!

    We're with Safeguard, we missed out on a promotion that they had by a couple of days when we bought the van new. But upon renewal, we mentioned this to them and they discounted ours by £25 to make it £320 per year, this covers breakdown for the UK and Europe, Homestart, Relay

    They were excellent when a van carrying ladders, reversed into the side of us. We needed a new side window, panel beating on the side, new decals etc. All in all, we've been very pleased with them.:thumb:

    Comfort

    I looked up Comfort on line and got a decent quote but as the renewal was a month away I didn't take However I saved it and when I tried again nearer to the date, it had gone up. I phoned therm and they honoured the first quote as it was inside the 14 day period. So far I haven't had to use them (Touch wood):thumb:
