I was with Saga, then moved to Comfort for a lower price.
Last year, I got a better deal back at Saga and I have just renewed again with Saga for an even lower price and a higher cover.
My bargaining power was that both our car and M/H renewed at the same time.
You do need to shop around, but I have found that Saga NOW seem to be looking at loyalty, but you DO need to mention it!

they use the same underwriter, Aviva, and to all extents and purposes are the same policies - if you look at the policy cover of Comfort and MHF insurances they are almost identical, but the pricing does differ between the 2.

Insurance

We are with MHF insurance as we thought any commission earned would go towards MHF.......................but thinking now of changing to Comfort.

I have always thought that they were exactly the same and all part of Victor Milwall..................can anyone confirm that prices and policies are indeed the same.

Peter and Carmel

Spooky travelled with us for 5 years and over 20,000 miles.He died aged 11 and is buried in Delphi in Greece.
Now that's a great age and a great adventure for a rabbit and I think he deserves a mention.

The best things in Life...........................are not Things !!

Life is really, really great …...........sometimes it's a bit sh*t............and then you die !!

It's like buying a large box of Persil from Tesco and another identical box from Lidl. The boxes of Persil can be identical but obviously Tesco is not the same as Lidl - and nor are their prices.

and I did say that pricing does differ between the Comfort and MHF policies - not much but a bit - so is in line with your analogy

Comfort Insurance is a trading name of Victor Millwell Insurance Agency Limited whereas Fusion Concepts (Trading as Motorhome Facts) is an Introducer Appointed Representative of Victor Millwell. MHF prices have in the past been about 10% less than Comfort's. Whether that is still the same now or not I don't know. Best way to find out is to get quotes.

I was considering it, too many petty comments on here for my liking but I can put up with them for 10% off the premium which is more than the subscription
