    insurance is due next week, just doing the phoning round for the best price.

    Currently with the c&c club, but just spoke to safeguard & they seem to offer so much
    more for the same money.

    Anybody have good or bad experiences with Safeguard? Too good to be true?

    I'm with them and think they offer a good deal. They allow me to park in secure storage OR on the road outside my house... And offer AA cover including European for just an xtra £80.

    Was with them for 12 years... Good all in package with the breakdown etc..
    Had to use breakdown twice, one in Spain and one in Germany.. No problems, got sorted and it was a good thing to be able to call safeguard direct and they helped liase between me and the breakdown.
    Also had a large claim when a stolen car was driving into the side of our van.. Everything sorted and premiums never moved the year after....
    Moved to Comfort (aviva) 2 years ago and only because offer a claim back on breakdowns for Morocco.. Their package is the same and actually slightly cheaper (£30) for me.. But never had to claim off them...

    OUCH !!!

    Have used them for years also. Good when you need to claim..friendly and professional. I stick with them as they are one of the only insurers that will cover on VIN number when Importing a camper. They also cover for 30 days when others only offer 14. With the DVLA move to Swansea it can take the month to get a van registered

    I started with Safeguard in 2005. Went to MHF in 2010 to save money on a then older van. Back with Safeguard again now, for the same reasons as Judgemental. Only quibble is their sales/new policy staff can give inconsistent misleading information over the phone.

    That last is a particular gripe of mine and seems to pervade phone customer services everywhere - they must recruit people who are both pleasant on the phone and can speak rubbish with authority.

    Have had to claim twice for accidents to Safeguard and sorted with no problems. They are one of the better ones. Currently with them but always shop around usually between caravanguard, saga and safeguard
    Cheaper isn't always best!

    Yes , have been with Safeguard for a few years now, a complete cover including European rescue etc. Have never made a claim , touch wood , not the cheapest but fewer restrictions.

    On this subject, I've just sent a PM to Chippy because in the current MMM there is an offer by Safeguard to NEW CUSTOMERS ONLY of £50 back 90 days after taking out their Insurance. Thought it might be of interest to others looking to change.
    You have to quote FIFTY MMM. This is 'exclusively to MMM readers Ahhm . and over the phone only.

    Another code (from NEC show) for new customers only is NEC14 which may work out better for some at 25% off - need to call on 08009951415 for this. Have read good & bad on here about Safeguard so not endorsing them but may be handy for some of you if this is who you choose having compared all the options.
