Which Campervan Insurance Quote to Choose?
As well as price, take time to consider everything that’s covered by a policy. Some policies include extra cover and features that will probably make your life easier.
Some features are ‘nice to have’, but not absolutely essential. These optional features might be things you need, so always check the higher quotes to see if there’s anything you’d miss if you chose a cheaper campervan insurance option. Other features should come as standard, so check what’s covered and make sure you’re happy before you make your final decision.
Look out for the following features:
Nothing is worse than breaking down on the way to your next destination. Look for policies with breakdown cover, for extra peace of mind on the road.
If you plan to expand your horizons, look for insurance that works outside the UK. You don’t want to tour the vineyards of France without the right insurance to protect you. Some insurance policies don’t come with this as standard, but European cover can sometimes be added as a short-term optional extra.
Gas Bottle and Awning Cover
Some items, like gas bottles and awnings, aren’t locked away safely in your campervan. With these outside, where they’re more likely to be stolen, do you want to make sure that they’re covered?
A crack in the windscreen can put a stop to your travel plans. Look for windscreen cover in your campervan insurance, so you don’t need to pay for repairs.
If you're in an accident that isn’t your fault, will your insurer cover your legal costs? You may need to defend yourself and show that you’re not to blame. Legal cover can provide for those out-of-pocket expenses.
We've all been there. The kids have asked ‘Are we there yet?’ one too many times, and when you stop for fuel you’re a little distracted and reach for the wrong pump. Some policies will cover you if you’ve put the wrong type of fuel in your campervan.
You’ve been hiking all afternoon, then get back to your van and discover that the keys have gone missing. If your keys are up at the top of a mountain and you’re with your van at the bottom, it helps to know that you’ve got key cover as part of your insurance.
If someone steals your car, you might be covered for contents like the handbag in the glovebox or the SatNav you safely tucked away. Campervan insurance must cover a lot more, since you’re probably travelling with home comforts like your TV, appliances and gadgets. See how your personal effects will be covered by your chosen insurer.
If the worst ever happens, and your campervan is involved in an accident that means it’s written off, you’ll need to know that your insurer will pay to cover the financial loss. Make sure that the agreed value of your van is enough to replace what you’ve lost. This can be tricky to get exactly right with classic or modified vehicles, so it’s very important to agree with the insurer about how much your vehicle is worth.
