What is campervan insurance?

Campervan insurance is specially designed for campervan owners. As with standard motor insurance, this type of cover is available at different levels. A comprehensive insurance policy covers you for accidental damage, vandalism, theft, fire, flood or other types of insured risk.

There are three categories of campervan that we cover at Comfort Insurance. We also provide insurance for three different styles of vehicle. Here is a look at the categories and styles that we can protect.

Which categories of campervan insurance can we offer?

We offer three categories of campervan cover. These are:

Professional conversions

This is designed for owners who have used a specialist company to carry out a full, expert update of their vehicle.

This type of campervan cover is bespoke, and can be individually tailored to meet your unique requirements. To get an insurance quote for your converted campervan speak to us today.

Some of the companies that we recognise as professional campervan converters include Autohaus, Camperking, East Neuk and Vanworx.

Classic campervan insurance

Our classic campervan policies cover campervans built before 1992. A typical policy includes 12 months’ fully comprehensive cover, which safeguards you against fire, theft, accidental damage, vandalism and any third-party claims for a year. It also includes legal expenses up to £100,000 and personal belongings cover up to £1,000 and can be extended to include ‘agreed value’, where we’ll agree the value of your campervan at the start of your policy, including spare parts and any claims will be dealt with on an agreed value basis.

We offer this across all styles of van, including fixed-roof and high-top campervans. Classic models that we can cover include VW T2 Split Bays, VW Devon T2s and the VW Westfalia Joker.

Self-build

If you’ve recently started a self-build campervan project, it’s likely that you’ll be excited about all that your new vehicle can offer. Whether you’ve built it from scratch or reimagined a standard van, you’ll need to seek specialist insurance.

We might be able to help. Call us on 0208 9840 666 to tell us about your vehicle. From there, we’ll let you know if we think we can insure your campervan and provide you with a quote.

Whatever the style of your campervan, whether it’s high-top, raised-roof or fixed-roof, we’ve got the cover to suit you. As with other types of insurance, the more comprehensive your high-top, raised-roof and fixed-roof campervan insurance policy is, the more protected you’ll be.

Comprehensive cover comes as standard with all of our campervan policies, as does at least 90 days European Green Card cover and legal expenses too.

What is covered by our campervan insurance?

As with standard home and car insurance, the more comprehensive your policy, the better the level of cover for your campervan. When seeking campervan cover, it’s important you’re aware of what is covered and any exclusions. This will help to make sure you have the right level of protection to suit your needs.

If you take out a comprehensive insurance policy for your campervan, this will cover you for:

  • Accidental damage
  • Vandalism
  • Fire
  • Theft
  • Any third-party damage or injury you cause

Our campervan insurance also covers all the little things other providers may not include in their standard policies, such as:

  • Personal effects and belongings
  • Awnings
  • Generators
  • Audio and navigational equipment
  • Window and windscreen breakage
  • Gas explosions
  • Replacement locks if your keys or transmitter are stolen

We also offer much more, subject to policy terms and conditions. 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.

Our insurance policies offer everything you could possibly need, from the awnings through to gas bottles. Policies also come with 90 days’ EU cover as standard, meaning you don’t have to cut your holiday short or return home in the middle of an adventure.

It’s important to note that insurers will always try to accommodate our customers as much as they can, but make sure you request the specific cover you think you may need.

* Subject to policy terms and conditions.

Exclusions on our campervan insurance policies

There are some circumstances where you will not be protected by your campervan insurance. You should always check if certain eventualities will be covered when creating your campervan insurance quote. This means you will avoid getting an untimely and unwanted surprise when it comes to making a claim.

Exclusions on our campervan policies include:

  • Loss of use, wear and tear, and depreciation
  • Loss or damage arising from theft when the keys have been left in the ignition
  • Any accident or damage caused by someone driving the vehicle without the appropriate licence
  • Damage to tyres by braking or by punctures, cuts or bursts
  • Damage to the vehicle arising from domestic animals, moth, vermin or infestation

These are just some of the exclusions on your campervan insurance. For a full list, please see your policy documents.

How much does campervan insurance cost?

If you’re looking for campervan insurance that offers great value, it’s worth getting a quote from us. Cover 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.

Costs will vary depending upon all these factors, meaning you could get a quote for as little as £220, but it could top the £1,000 mark depending upon your circumstances and the value of your campervan.

We will be transparent with you from the very start so that you’re aware of how much your policy will be.

What other factors affect insurance costs?

Should you own a campervan that is rare or unique in some way, such as a classic VW Samba, or you’re searching for VW T5 campervan insurance, you will still be able to find cover with us.

If your campervan is your only vehicle and the one you use whenever you’re on the road, this could also affect the price you pay. If your campervan is parked up for weeks at a time and you only use it at certain times of the year, this should bring down the price, particularly if it’s kept in a garage when not in use.

To find out how much a policy may cost you can get a campervan insurance quote online, or you can give us a call on 0208 9840 666.

How to get your campervan insurance quote

Whether you have a classic Westfalia or a brand new California, you’ll need a campervan insurance policy that covers you for every eventuality. You need to ensure all your possessions are fully protected, whether your vehicle is being kept on the drive or is cruising around Europe.

With Comfort Insurance, your insurance are perfectly simple to obtain. All you need to do is select your type of vehicle and provide us with a few details, including its make and mileage as well as the level of cover you desire.

The next step is to fill out some personal information on our easy-to-use online form, and you’ll have your campervan insurance quote within a few moments. If you prefer a more personal touch, you can always give our experts a call on 0208 9840 666.

What we need to provide you with campervan conversion insurance or other forms of cover

There are some instances where we can’t give you a campervan insurance quote straight away. This is because, while we have policies from selected insurance underwriters, there is some information we will need from you to process your request for a quote.

This applies to campervan conversions that have an engine size of 3500cc or more, bespoke campervan conversions carried out by a professional converter, imported Japanese campervans and self-built/home-built campervans. If this applies to your campervan, we will need the following things:

  • Images of your vehicle. We require four photos of the inside and four of the outside of your vehicle
  • A copy of your gas certificate or your habitation check

Additionally, your vehicle will need to be registered as a motorcaravan or a van with side windows. Should you not be able to register your campervan conversion as a motorcaravan or a van with side windows with the DVLA, it’s still possible for us to consider you for self-build cover. However, this is done on a case-by-case basis, so we suggest you call us on 0208 9840 666 and we’ll take you through the process.

What are the benefits of insuring your campervan with Comfort Insurance?

One of the major benefits of choosing Comfort Insurance for your campervan cover is the level of protection you can get. We’re proud to include the things that other insurance providers may not have in their standard policies.

We provide cover for personal effects and belongings, awnings, generators, audio and navigational equipment, child seats, window and windscreen breakage, gas explosions, legal expenses and so much more. We’ll even replace your locks 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 safely on the road.

Making a claim on your campervan insurance

For many customers, this is the most important part – even more so than price. Regardless of how much you are paying for your insurance policy, you want to be safe in the knowledge that if something goes wrong you are able to make a claim as quickly and as simply as possible.

Once you have a policy with us, you’re covered if things go wrong. So, whether your claim relates to an accident, fire, theft or other damage, you can begin the process by calling the Comfort claims line on 0800 0280 038 or the claims reporting number detailed in your policy. You’ll speak to a personal incident manager who will ask you to give them as much information as possible. We also ask that you have your vehicle registration number to hand so your policy records can be found quickly.

If your campervan has been stolen, 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 the insurer to speed things up when processing the claim.

Campervan Insurance FAQs

Still have questions about campervan insurance? Here are some of the queries we get asked most often:

Campervan insurance will depend on the value of the vehicle but typically, comprehensive cover under a specialist policy like the one Comfort Insurance offers where it has additional benefits of a Green Card, Gas and Explosion and Personal Effects cover to list but a few.

Typically, Campervan insurance is cheaper than general van or car insurance. This will depend on the mileage that is being used by the vehicle and the NCB that is available but here at Comfort Insurance we can match NCB if you don’t have spare bonus to transfer to the campervan.

Most motorcaravans are under the plated weight of 3,500 kg so can be driven on a private car licence but always check your licence categories of entitlement to drive against the plated weight of the vehicle.

Comfort Insurance do not offer a 6 monthly policy but we do offer limited mileage contracts which keeps the vehicle fully insured for the year. Normally with the value involved fully comprehensive insurance is required and if there is HPI on the vehicle then there is also the requirement to keep the vehicle insured at all times so we would always recommend selecting a mileage band that would suit the annual needs to provide the best premium.

There are a number of factors that can help reduce the cost of insurance as listed below.

  • Evidence of claim-free driving, even if this has been accrued while driving a car
  • Mileage with Comfort Insurance offering different mileage bands
  • Being a member of a camping association
  • Paying the premium as a one off rather than monthly instalments
  • Good security

    In essence, yes but campervans are generally smaller and don’t have a driving cab that is separate from the living area.

    Comfort Insurance only insure drivers aged 21 or above.
