    I intend to cancel and replace my present insurance with AIB shortly, since I will soon exceed their 10k mileage limit. They told me that Arriva do not offer any insurance for MHs above 12k pa, and that between 10k and 12k the excess becomes, well, excessive. I live in the south west, safe area. Someone mentioned NFU, so will try them, but there are so many companies I thought I could use a short list. Thanks in anticipation.

    I believe Saga do 365 days European cover and unlimited mileage as well, similar to Safeguard mentioned by klaatu.

    I sincerely hope not otherwise there are going to be very many of us looking for new insurance. I've got a no-limits policy underwritten by Aviva (that's who you mean isn't it? Arriva is a bus company) and I'm sure there are many more of us the same. Yes, the premium is higher for unlimited mileage but "excessive"? Suggest you try a couple of others - Comfort, who I use, are underwritten by Aviva and have always been competitive.

    Yes, of course Aviva, silly mistake, I had wrongly corrected my spelling. They would not offer me unlimited mileage or even higher mileage at any price, the excessive reference was that the excess between 10k-12k was over £1,000. They definitely stated that Aviva did not offer unlimited. It's bizarre. Perhaps I should speak with AIB again before I cancel.

    I use the sat nag always to check speed, since I cannot read the Fiat dash read out. But I think perhaps the days have gone by where you could simply undo the spring clip on the engine. Not that I ever did that, of course.
