    I've just renewed my insurance for the Moho. Got a brilliant deal with Equity but with enquiring I got a call from Grove & Dean and their quote was with Highway. As a bonus, and temptation, they included breakdown both UK and up to 30 days abroad (90 days max) but the reason I didn't go ahead was there was a £600 maximum windscreen cover but the cost was under £300.00 including legal and protected no claim.

    Comfort quoted me over £540 for no better cover.

    Got ours through CaravanGuard as they had the best value for European travel, £2k windscreen cover and the usual stuff - we did have a Tracker fitted but having no no-claims that we could transfer over it kind of balanced out.

    From memory I thought that comfort only offered 120 days in Europe unless you take out a fulltime policy. I know sometimes though that it does depend on the specifics of maybe the m/h and ages of the drivers as to what they offer.

    Hi
    Try AIB, I tried the others listed above but they didn't come close to AIB. I arranged European breakdown separately through LV Brittania who were a Which Best Buy and are able to repatriate vehicles in excess of 5 tonnes..Good luck

    Thanks for all your help. Having checked most we have decided to stay with Devitts the insurance company through the caravan club as they gave us the cheapest quote.

    ERS via AiB. Had a claim a couple of years ago because of storm damage and they were quick and efficient. Also it did not affect the following year's premium :) They have also been very helpful with my license being revoked ...... instead of a policy change they have made a note on the present policy and will do any changed (if needed) when we renew.

    Interested as to what they charge for the 365 day cover whilst abroad, or is it just included as standard on the policy?

    It's in the standard policy but not for full timing
