Why should I have campervan insurance?
Campervans offer the ideal way to see the world whether at home or abroad - simply pack up and hit the road, avoiding all the hassle of checking in at the airport and lugging your things about by hand. So far, so good, but if something goes wrong, your standard travel insurance won’t cover everything.
That’s why specialist campervan insurance is a must. But with so many different types of campervan on the market, from classic VWs to converted panel vans, and so many countries to visit, finding the right campervan cover can be tricky - that’s where our guide to getting a campervan insurance quote can help.
Is motorhome insurance the same as campervan insurance?
In short, no. It’s very important to note that, although they do share a lot of features, motorhomes and campervans are not the same thing and there are two main differences:
- Campervans are generally smaller and more compact than Motorhomes
- Campervans don’t have a driving cab that is separate from the living area within, while motorhomes do.
Motorhomes are generally better suited for families who need a van that can comfortably sleep everyone or travellers who spend a lot of time on the road and need more space than a campervan can offer.
There are generally four main types of Motorhome:
- American RV-style
- Race Trucks.
What does my campervan insurance cover?
As with standard home and car insurance, the more comprehensive your policy, the better the level of cover. When running a campervan insurance quote, it’s important you’re aware of what is covered and any exclusions, to make sure you have the right level of cover to suit your needs.
If you take out a comprehensive campervan policy, this will cover you accidental damage, vandalism, fire, theft and any third party damage or injury you cause. Comfort Campervan insurance also covers all of the little things that other insurance providers may not include in their standard policies.
We also provide cover for personal effects and belongings, awnings, generators, audio and navigational equipment, window and windscreen breakage, gas explosions, and so much more**. We’ll even replace your locks free of charge if your keys or transmitter are stolen. Some companies may call these extras, but we like to think of these as necessities when it comes to keeping your campervan on the road.
When running a quote for campervan insurance, you should always ask if certain eventualities will be covered and then you will not get an untimely and unwanted surprise when it comes to making a claim. Insurers will always try to accommodate our customers as much as they can but be sure that you enquire for specific things you think could occur.
How old do I have to be to take out campervan insurance?
Only those over the age of 21 can apply for campervan insurance, and motorists aged between 21 and 25 years old may find that their insurance is a bit more expensive than older drivers. This is because age and driving experience is one of the key considerations when insurers compile the prices for campervan insurance.
How much can I expect to pay for Campervan insurance?
Similar to any other insurances out there, campervan insurance is priced according to a variety of factors and assumptions, including the make, model and age of the vehicle, as well as the age of the main driver, the length of time they’ve had their licence and any motoring convictions.
Should you own a campervan which is rare or unique in some way, such as a classic VW Samba or a vintage Ford Transit, you will still be able to find cover - we are specialists in VW campervan insurance.
Costs will vary depending upon all these factors, meaning you could get campervan insurance for as little as £197*, but it could top the £1,000 mark, depending upon your circumstances.
If your campervan is your only vehicle and the one you use every single day – or at least every time you are on the road – this could also have an effect on the price that you pay. If your Campervan is parked up for weeks at a time and you only use it at certain times in the year, then this should bring down the price, particularly if it’s kept in a garage when not in use.
How to cut the cost of campervan insurance
Aside from only using it occasionally and keeping it in a garage when not in use, there are a number of ways to cut the cost of cover. You might find that your premium is substantially reduced if you can provide evidence of at least a few years of claim-free driving, even if this has been accrued while driving a car.
Being a member of a camping association or a similar club could also get you cheaper quotes – but remember to have the evidence of this to ensure you receive this discount.
Other ways to save you money on your cover include:
- Paying all in one for an annual premium rather than monthly instalments
- Having the best security available for your particular campervan
You should also only add those extras to your quote which are necessary. If, for instance, you won’t be driving in Europe, you won’t need to add cover for driving on the continent.
Although price is important, it’s vital you ensure you have the correct level of cover, in case the worst ever happens and you have to make a claim.
If I have to claim, what do I do?
For many customers, this is the most important part – even more so than price. The simple reason being that regardless of how much you are paying for your insurance, you want to be safe in the knowledge that if something goes wrong, you are able to make a claim for things you are covered for – as quickly and as simply as possible.
So, whether your claim relates to an accident you have had with the Campervan, if you have been the victim of a fire or damage to it or it has been stolen, you should notify your insurer as quickly as you can with as much information as possible.
If there has been a theft, you should report this to the police immediately. They will issue you with a crime reference number, which you will be able to give to your insurer to speed things up when processing the claim.
