    Hi i went with comfort this year and they are very competitive,and i bought a good european breakdown cover of them aswell. After a month i upgraded my van and there was no increase in premium only a standard £15 charge for change of policy.:Smile: And the english speaking girl sounded a real sweetheart too. Good Luck:thumb:

    Ray! Safeguard!!

    Go down and ask the guy on the middle row with the Bel Air! He is with them and if you remember he had no end of problems last year and they came up trumps!

    We're with them too and pay less than £600 and ours is an A class! ( silly price windscreen and it's 100% covered!) :Smile:

    What you need is a maximum no claims discount I.E. 70%. if you have not got that its going to cost.

    We're now with (I think) Aviva (what used to be NU) via Frank Pickles, who are brokers - and who are ace. They were about £150 cheaper than whoever we were originally with, I know the cover was RSA but not sure who the broker was, possibly Safeguard?

    I left SAGA as they had no loyalty for long time clients, just keeps going up. went to Caravan Gaurd, Real good price.
    The problem with all insurance companies is that they do not reward loyalty, would rather give discounts to attract new customers.

    My Son in law was with LV when he first bought his van. He had a run in with a Bus and lost his door mirror. Three different Garages turned up and left saying" too big", LV not set up for Mobile Homes.

    i also insure via comfort ,my policy is underwritten by aviva,
    even though we had a claim year before, due to a breakin in spain
    our premium remained within a few pound on renewal.
    claim was dealt with very well.
    currently paying around £400 fully comp 2 drivers ,including breakdown cover in europe.
