    Hi ours is due in the next few days.I have been quoted a renewal premium of £222 inc legal expenses (£21) with £100 xs -- how is this comparing to what you are paying ?
    No overseas or recovery needed --seems reasonable to me unless you know different :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Sounds very reasonable, I paid £380 in Feb with Safeguard, who are owned by Swinton I believe. This includes legal, overseas and breakdown. I wonder why I'm paying so much after 9 years with them and no claims. Must look around next Feb for something cheaper.

    M/H insurance ??

    Hi Terry I tried Safeguard and Caravan Guard.
    Caravand Guard was double my renewal
    I rang SAGA back and they dopped my renewal by £35 so at £ 230 its not too bad. :thumb:
    We are in CCC I would not give CC :Angry: house room so cannot try them.

    Hi Alf and all, a quick update -- Insurance Choice were £19 dearer,Saga are £1 cheaper but if you get a quote for another product (not take it out,just quote) they give a £30 discount on top so saving £31.Only problem they do not and cannot offer the same level of cover,so it may well be CC for us, but then again Saga probably gives us enough cover for what we need::bigsmile:

    BTW Saga covers 365 days euro,CC 270 days in any one trip and IC was 30 days per trip.

    edit Alf you do not need to join CC to take out insurance ?

    I looked in the August MMM for the CC phone no their ad is on page 233 it states this insurance is for CC members only so took it at face value and did not ring :Sad:

    Insurance

    We are in the same situation> I am ringing round now. We had our Insurance with Saga last year and they have come in at £336.45 with no breakdown cover as we still have Fiat Assist for our 2nd year. The C Club have quoted me £309.74 so think I will now go back to Saga and see if they can match it, only thing we didn,t like about Saga was they charged us extra last year for putting the van in storage although this years quote does cover that. I have tried Swinton who transfered me to Safeguard they were £320. Adrian Flux who people seem to reccomend told me "IF YOU CAN GET THAT PRICE I WOULD TAKE IT WE CAN,T MATCH IT"

    Any more ideas maybe i can get a quote with a 2 in it would be nice- Sue

    Hi Sue the CC promise to beat your renal quote by £25 so it should be a little cheaper :thumb:
    BTW the INSURANCE CHOICE was only 240 for us -- both to drive, clean licences over ten yrs, full no claims, legal cover 100xs and van @ 17,000 agreed value so keep shopping around

    I tried SAGA after a reccomendation in CCC magazine. They quoted GBP 1200!!

    I'm with AxA, and they charge GBP 230 with a protected bonus, and GBP 150 damage/theft excess.
