Saving money!

We have also just bought our insurance from Motorhome facts (Aviva) and saved approx £180 as opposed to Caravan Guard. Really pleased!

March of last year, Aviva, through Comfort, quoted £240 to renew.

Aviva, through MHF, I was quoted £212. Increased mileage took it to £229. Then I added a satellite dome which added about £45 more = £274.

Aviva, through the Caravan Club, quoted £591!


For this year, the quotes underwritten by Aviva are:

Renewal through MHFacts Insurance: £255.57

Through the Caravan Club: £667 and no they will not keep the promise of beating a renewal by £25!!

So MHF Insurance saved me £417.43 compared to the CC, who "work hard for its members!" !!!!!!!!!!!!!

As a PS: by paying MHF Insurance £311, I moved to the platinum level which includes UK breakdown through the RAC, plus European breakdown.

I have just changed to MHF/Aviva and saved £140, almost the cost of the road fund licence

Glad majority of you are getting cheaper quotes than elsewhere but the benefit is really that its a superb policy underwritten by Aviva and supported on UK Call centres

Dave,
The only question I have is regarding windscreen cover can it be increased from the £3000 limit? Even if there is an additional premium I am sure those like me who have an A class van would appreciate it and it may increase business for you

direct from the broker:

"The windscreen limit is set at £3000 per claim and it cannot be increased even for an additional premium."

If the glass is a concern then IMO it should be reviewed, when the overall facility with AVIVA is due.

My highest glass claim was AVIVA for a replacement sunroof on a 4X4 Porsche £6,800, £75 XS and no loss of no claims. The AVIVA private car wording had no limit, but you can see why insurers like a limit!

You could argue if it is many thousands for a new screen, you could make a normal claim under Accidental Damage, pay your excess, lose a life on your protected No Claims and still be better off!
