Husband and dog were remov d to a distance. Two policemen with guns and a large dog searched van
We were last on and nearly miss d the boat !
I also have them in printed format, although usually printed off e-mail, and in transparent pockets on a ring binder.

I think that having documents organised is likely to persuade authorities that one is 'conforming' to rules/laws.

Once in Slowakia though I was stopped on a downhill slip-road for about 5kph over 50kph, asked for 'Papers' and could not remember which cupboard the binder was in. Not a problem as it was only a 'warning' and he was very pleasant.

I couldnt agree more Geoff. That is what we do also.

I don’t use the firm you name. I am with the RAC in a scheme called Arrival which is a partnership with the Camping and Caravan club.
The reason I mention this is that the Arrival scheme, whilst depending on you being a member of the c&cc has the invaluable conditions which are that there is no restriction on age, length and I think weight. We add European cover for possible breakdown but more importantly for repatriation.

Do read the small print on any scheme you contemplate to ensure you have the cover you need.

Welcome to the forum.

Hi Krystian, welcome.

I don't know the people you mention I'm afraid and nor is mine a purely online affair (Dolmen.ie)

I'm just wondering why this thread was in my Subscribed list (before I actually responded!)

Has anyone else noticed an anomaly?

New Insurance Policy

I have just tried to renew my Ford Motorhome insurance with Aviva - Comfort & was told that all Ford vehicles must be fitted with a Tracker otherwise they will not renew my policy. Can anyone enlighten me on this?

There has been a lot of information in the media for a while now about how easy it is to break into Transits, I would think this is why they want a tracker fitted.

New Insurance Policy

Result today after many calls with Aviva- Comfort. As we have CCTV on our car park it will NOT be necessary to have a Tracker fitted to my Ford Motorhome. They even covered me outside my policy end date to solve the problem.
So thank you Comfort Insurance I am now covered for another 12 mths. BTW, policy increase from last year was a whopping £1.83 extra incl. European break down!!!

Aren't they worried that you just might not leave it parked in the CP 24/7 365 days a year.

Or have they realised that they are losing business to other companies which do not have the stipulation?
