Proper protection and peace of mind
Devon, Samba or Westfalia – you’ll need proper cover for all situations, no matter which classic VW campervan. In fact, the same applies to any other type of campervan. It’s also important to make sure all your possessions are fully insured too – whether your classic is on the drive or on the road in Europe. Things can go wrong when you least expect. But don’t let that be an issue.
We tailor our products to satisfy all our customers’ needs. At home and abroad, we’ve created a classic campervan insurance product that goes the extra mile – so your campervan can too. We know that classic campers are often rarer and higher in value. So, that’s why a policy might cost a little more than if you wanted to insure a conventional camper.
How do I get a classic campervan insurance quote?
To get a classic campervan insurance quote, you first need to let us know the type of campervan you have. Next, enter a few more details about you, your van and your driver history. We’ll then return a quote that will suit both your needs and your budget. That really is all there is to it.
Only drivers over the age of 21 can apply for classic campervan insurance. If you’re aged between 21 and 25, you might find your quote is a bit more expensive than an older motorist with that extra experience. This is because age and driving experience is one of the important factors for us and other insurers when working out the cost of classic campervan insurance.
How much is classic campervan insurance?
The cost of classic campervan insurance will depend on a number of factors. So, any quote we give will be tailored to your specific vehicle and personal situation.
As classic campervan and motorhome insurance needs to provide such specialised and bespoke cover, you may find that you’ll pay a bit more than you would for regular cover. You might also need to get an agreed value for your van. This is because your classic campervan is likely to be worth a lot more than the list price of another vehicle of the same age.
But there are some things that are treated just the same as regular campervan insurance. Your classic campervan might be your only vehicle, for example. This can have an effect on the price of your insurance if you use it every day – or at least every time that you’re on the road. This is because your chances of having an accident are higher when you spend more time on the road.
If you park your classic campervan up for weeks at a time and only use it occasionally, however, it should help to lower your premium – particularly if you keep your camper in a secure garage.
How to cut the cost of classic campervan insurance
The secure storage of your vehicle is just one factor that can help lower the cost of your classic campervan insurance. Other things that can help to reduce your insurance premium include:
- Building up at least a few years of driving without making a claim
- Being a current member of a camping association or a similar club
If either of these do apply to you, it could mean cheaper classic motorhome insurance. But it’s also important to remember we’ll need evidence before we can give you a discounted quote.
There are more things that can help you save money on your classic campervan insurance too:
- Pay in one go for an annual premium (rather than monthly instalments)
- Install the best security available for your particular classic campervan
- Obtaining advanced driving qualifications
- Only adding extras to your quote that are necessary and right for you
It can also be worth shopping around to get the best deal on your classic campervan insurance. But we’re confident that our experience and standard level of cover means that we’ll come out on top against any other provider when it comes to looking after your vintage camper.
What happens if I have to claim on my classic campervan insurance?
The cost of classic campervan insurance often isn’t the most important factor for our customers. Instead, it’s being confident that you’re fully covered when something goes wrong. And, when it does, we’re here to ensure it won’t be a hassle to make a claim as quickly and easily as possible.
If you ever need to make a claim, you should tell us as soon as possible with as many details as you can. It could be that your classic campervan is involved in an accident or you’re the victim of a fire. If it’s stolen or damaged too, we need to know at the earliest opportunity.
No matter the reason for making a claim, call the Comfort claims line on 0800 0280 038 and give us a full rundown of what’s happened to support your claim. We ask for your vehicle registration number too, which helps us locate your policy information quickly and easily.
If you’re the victim of a theft, it is essential that you tell the police immediately. You’ll be given a crime reference number – and that’s something that we’ll need as part of your claims process.
