I have a 1983 Talbot Express camper and seem to be paying a lot in insurance (about £600). Can anyone recommend a company with more competitive premiums?
Thanks

Hi,
Suggest that you look at 'Motorhome Matters' part of this forum, date of 5th. June Subject - Combination Insurance/Breakdown Cover. There are lots of replies posted, most of which recommend Comfort Insurance. They might be worth a try for a quote for your Van but, if still too expensive, then there are lots of Motorhome Insurers advertising in MMM and all the other Motorhome magazines - just work your way through them!

Good luck, Greynomad.

You could try joining the Caravan Club, they do seem to get some pretty competitive quotes. [altho they can be a bit snooty about old 'vans]
Good luck, £600 does sound an awful lot to pay.

Hi Swampy,

I'm a bit slow in responding but try the Classic camper club http://classiccamperclub.tripod.com/ they should give you a pointer.

just got my renewal from Safeguard, for my 1996 elddis elite, with uk and european breakdown cover. just over 300 pounds - 2 pounds cheaper than last year - without the breakdown cover it would be 219 pounds.
Used the breakdown service in France last year when we had battery problems and they were very helpfull.
I am happy with Safeguard.

Hi everybody, this is my No1 post as we are going to get a moterhome!. We have been told that a company called Footman James is about the best for price!, Is this correct or has any of you found one better.

Having just paid £350 for insurance, I must say the £600 you quoted seems very high indeed. Mine was insured through the c&cc and includes breakdown cover as well. Another consideration is that this insurance is really comprehensive with none of the get out clauses you sometimes find with other quotes. Best to shop around. Howard.

Hi,

We are paying about £150 for Fully Comp on our 1994 Talbot Express 2.5NA. I'm 67. Unlimited use in Europe. But I have full NCB, and am a member of the CSMA which gives me a discount with Liverpool & Victoria. Also get a discount for insuring 2 vehicles.

Anybody who is or was a Civil Servant, or is related to such a person, can join the CSMA. There was something in the monthly CSMA magazine, saying something was now free....could it have been membership?

Note that the premium can vary greatly due to age of driver, his NCB, his location, and value of the van.

Just renewed with Safeguard, also personal Travel insurance. The best so far that I have seen especially with Full UK/EU Breakdown cover.
