    We chose Safeguard (0113 258 1614) as they offered fully comp for our Kontiki, 365 days cover for European travel and free breakdown and recovery service with the AA all for just over £300 I think. Seem fine.

    Insurance

    Hi, Comfort Insurance was the cheapest quote I could find. We changed to them last year while visiting the Shepton Mallet Show and they saved us £100 on Saga prices which we use for all other insurances and which we had used for a couple of years for the van. This year they have saved us nearly another £100 because we are not doing the same mileage only 6,000 miles instead of 8,000 as last year. Fully comprehensive with full AA European breakdown cover, windscreen cover (£75 excess), but for us that is cheap considering the size of our windscreen. The underwriters are Aviva (Norwich Union) all for £262.98. There is an automatic £3000 personal effect and camping equipment cover built in as well. Why not give them a call?

    I went for Safeguard on return to the UK, for all the good reasons stated above plus they accepted my French no claims bonus.

    I have just bought a camper based on a citroen relay and was converted by vehicle and marine windows in birmingham. I tried caravan guard for insurance and was told that they would not cover it as it was not converted by a known name.


    I then contacted IC insurance and was very pleased with their responce and subsequently took it out with them.

    Hi, having phoned around several companies, you need to make sure that if you want breakdown cover, they will take your size vehicle, some had differents lengths of cover for abroad and some covered different values.
    I think to need to make sure that the cover is suited to your needs!!!
    I went with Camping and caravan club, as although the premium was within about £20 of the different companies I spoke to, their excess was only £100, whereas the others was £250. And I have full breakdown cover home and abroad including home start.
    One company said that If i was withing 5 miles from home, they would not come out!

    Also, worth going with a good company, even if it costs a few quid more, so you should have no problems if you need to claim.

    Just got my 1st van, have zero no claims bonus becuase I have had a company car for 8 years and was told to try Frank Pickles. They did fully comp without eurpean travel (i'm not ready yet) for £158. I snatched their arm off ::bigsmile:

    The van is a Fiat Ducato CI1000, slow I know but i'm not Schumacher

    Our Motorhome insurance is due soon and I'm having a bit of trouble getting quotes due to the fact I will be 90 in July. I am awaiting the renewal notice from SAGA who I am with at the moment but I would like to get a few comparisons if anyone has any suggestions please. Billy & Gwen

    Hi Joe & Denise. Nice to hear from you. We'll have to meet up again somewhere, sometime as they say Tempus Fugit.
    All the best

    We started off with Caravan Guard (came as a package with the van) who were fine - until we wanted to increase our annual mileage when they started wanting silly money. To be fair, without "refusing" insurance the guy did suggest that for higher mileage use we'd probably get a better deal elsewhere, Caravan Guard weren't keen on high mileages. Tried Comfort, very pleased with quote so changed over and they have been excellent - even going a few miles further when I had to change the van storage and the premium suddenly escalated, which they sorted out.

    But I have noticed on the various insurance threads that every case seems to be different so my advice is to ring round them all, although I believe many (most?) are underwritten by Aviva.
