    Wow, exciting times (y)(y)
    I use Stavely Head for my insurance and they have given me a good price for the new van being picked up in June.

    Comfort are recommend by many here but ring round several. Each person's circumstances are different.

    For a year trip in Europe you will obviously need a policy that covers that time abroad.. and preferably with breakdown cover..

    I have just insured with Comfort, they provide 365 EU cover and Europe wide breakdown assistance with the RAC assist..

    I also had quotes from AIB, Safeguard and NFU.. Comfort gave the best cover , NFU was very expensive..

    try them all, and don't forget you need to tell them if you are living in your van continuously for a year.. that may consider that is full time and bump the premium up.. not disclosing may void the policy..

    I'm also with Caravan guard, I think European breakdown cover is an extra with them

    It was, but it was still cheaper than others although we have been with them for years so get a discount plus a discount for the tracker

    I use Direct Line as I had 2 years no claims on my second car which I sold and transferred to the new MoHo. £194 with£350 excess or £234 at £0 excess. No concerns about alarm, tracker or where I parked as long as it was in the same AB10 postcode. I park on my drive but there will be times that I need to park it overnight close by so I made that clear. Caravan Club wanted something in the region of £500 after their discount. Aye, right!!!

    You need to check that the cover is what you require :)
