when I insured my motor home for the first time they transfered my no claims from my car to it so it didnt cost some much,on renewing it the following year with other companys I told them of my car plus the 1 year no claims on the motor home.
hope that helps.

Hiu billy and welcome.
I can't speak for everyone but this is what happened with us.

We were given an introductory offer of discount on the motorhome on proof that we had NCB for the car. If you do as you suggest then you would lose discount on one of the vechiles.
If it is your first insurance policy for the MH you should get a discount anyway.

You will be completely amazed at how cheap motorhome insurance is. We only pay£250 ish per year. This year £300 inclusive of full european breakdown cover.:thumb:

We are with Saga we contacted them before buying the motorhome with this issue and were quite happy to clone the 60% no claims bonus we had on the car:thumb:

Shop Around.

You'll get a deal that will pleasantly surprise you.

In this crazy world it seems to pay to change insurers every year. With my bike a couple of years ago I was quoted £200 ish for renewal, went to biggest competitor and got it best part of £100 less. When I got the policy it was the same NU one. Crazy.

As others have said, I don't know why MH policies are so cheap considering all the contents risk we have.

We insured our first motorhome with safeguard and they mirrored our 60% No Claims Discount that we had on the car. Dont know if they still do that though.

We got full no claims discount on both mh and car on the grounds that you can't be at the wheel of two vehicles at once. Worth a try - NFU are good.

No.

When shopping around for a quote on your mh you will be asked the standard set of questions, one of which is how many years ncb you have. If you then also decide to run a car independently of your mh, the ncb is applicable to that insurance as well.

A point worth noting though is mh insurance companies are not as plentiful as car insurance so competition is not as fierce. Also there are some mh insurance companies which won't insure unless you have access to a second vehicle, such as a car. In fact some make it compulsory in that they will only insure your mh for leisure purpose which means you cannot use it to nip down to the supermarket or go to work in it. This reduces the risk to the company of course, but also limits your use.

I fell foul of what I consider a misleading offer.

When I bought my first motorhome I spoke to the AA Team ( !!! :cry: ) and the oik suggested that as I had a smarty I could switch the full max no claims to the M H and they would then match the NCB for the Smarty..
Ok, sounds like a good deal

Except recently I discovered I had not actually been given the NCB, merely an 'introductory offer equalling the NCB'
Which meant that when I changed the Smarty recently I found I actually only had 1 full years NCB ! Not good when you are insuring a Range Rover, believe me !!!

So do be sure ( and double treble and quadruple check ! ) that it really is NCB you are being given and not just an 'introductory offer' !

Hi I bought my bessacar 465, 2 years ago, if you contact caravan guard for insurance they will mirror your no claims on to your van so you will have the same discount on both vehicles,
You will find them on the web or most dealers have brochures hope this helps you out.:thumb::thumb:
