How do I begin to get a quote for my Classic Campervan?

To get a classic campervan insurance quote, you’ll first need to let us know the type of campervan you have and then enter a few more details about your van, yourself and your driver history. We’ll then return a quote that will suit both your needs and your budget. It really is that simple.

Only drivers over the age of 21 can apply for classic campervan insurance and anyone aged between 21 and 25-years-old may find their insurance is a bit more expensive than older, more experienced motorists. This is because age and driving experience is one of the important factors considered when insurers compile the prices for classic campervan insurance.

How much is classic campervan insurance?

The price you pay for campervan insurance depends upon a number of factors, and so any classic campervan insurance quote we give will be tailored to your specific vehicle and circumstances.

As classic campervan insurance needs to offer such specialised and bespoke cover, you may find that you are paying a bit more than you would for regular campervan insurance, and you may need to get an agreed valuation for your van. This is because your classic campervan will most likely be worth a lot more than the list price of another vehicle of the same age.

However, there are certain things which are treated the same and still factored in as they would be with regular campervan insurance. For example, if your classic campervan is your only vehicle and the one that you use every single day – or at least every time that you are on the road – this could also have an effect on the price that you pay. This is because the more time you spend on the road, the more likely you are to have an accident.

If, on the other hand, your classic campervan is parked up for weeks at a time and you only use it at certain times of the year, then you should see a reduction in the premium price, particularly if it is kept in a secure garage.

How to cut the cost of classic campervan insurance

 Your premium may also be reduced if you can provide evidence of at least a few years claim-free driving, and being a member of a camping association or a similar club could enable you cheaper quotes – but remember to have the evidence of this to hand to ensure that you receive this discount.

Other things that can help can save you money, are paying all in one for an annual premium rather than monthly instalments, having the best security available for your particular Classic Campervan, getting advanced driving qualifications, making sure your Classic Campervan is always parked somewhere safe, only adding those extras to your quote which are necessary and of course, shopping around to the get the best deal.

Whatever happens, though, always make sure that the coverage you get will be the best that the insurance market can offer you.
