    Hi All you wonderful and knowledgeable people “right that’s got the creeping out of the way”

    I am in the process of re-insuring my Motor Home at the moment I’m with Adrian Flux.

    I’m looking for a company who will allow me to be abroad more than 90 days and allows me more than 6000 millage a year. I’ve looked through some insurance threads but without reading War & Peace I can’t find anything to do with these two terms I want.

    I know some people must get them as they go to Spain for 4 or 5 months at a time.

    Also the last one, it has to be cheap LOL, Now that’s a contradiction in terms when talking about Motorhome Insurance.

    Many Thanks Tony

    Have a look at Caravan and Motorhome Club. Can't remember exact details but I think from memory they will meet most if not all of what you are looking for. One thing I cannot comment on is price, we all know there is no rhyme or reason to how that is calculated. But CMC is the best for my needs and very competitive price.
    Worth having a look, good luck.

    Safeguard give me 365 days European cover and unlimited mileage. For me, they were also one of the cheapest.

    Another (y) for Safeguard, not the absolute cheapest, but for us, the best cover, also unlimited windscreen cover

    We’ve just renewed with a Caravan and a Motorhome Club ....we fully expected the price to rocket as last year was on a special deal but it’s actually gone down in price:)

    Do you know if any of the above repatriate your vehicle if neccesary, and do they do NCD as Adrian Flux does not.
    Best Wishes Tony

    As I said no rhyme or reason with regard to price, far to many variables. The only constant being the provision of cover and policy limitations the price will vary greatly between us all.

    That’s because you asked for Business use, try Social, Domestic and Pleasure and you’ll get a realistic figure. Just renewed mine with them, £40k value £285.(y)

    Been with Comfort for 8 years for us £200 cheaper than Safeguard. 365 day cover but if you are abroad for more than 9 months they want you to take out full time cover.
    Require an alarm or tracker over £40k or a tracker over £75k value, windscreen limited to £3k, breakdown cover is approx £60.
    They don't have NCD but have a net policy so you start at the best price.

    Today I've just received a quote from Comfort for £527 and it has been said each have their own problems, illnesses, poor post code regions, where you store your vehicle, it goes on and on so there is no way we could expect me or anyother person to get the same price unless we were twins lived in the same house had the same vehicle you get the picture.
    Best Wishes Tony
