Unfortunately they did say "No", but Comfort seem pretty good for motorhome insurance. The original quote from Swinton for the car was more than the motorhome premium from Comfort!!! That was what wound me up in the first place, specially as the car is a very ordinary Skoda Roomster.

I think they act more or less as brokers, but as Webby (almost) said, they are not as greedy as some! Insurance is provided by Liverpool Victoria, but beyond that I know no more.

Out of interest I just asked for a couple of quotes

1/ Jans Ford Fiesta ST..............£160.13

2/ My Ford Ranger double cab pick-up £159.73

I may well be moving at the appropriate time

But the do cover Motorhomes, their web site and telephone operatives just don't know it!

I phoned today and the girl said that they cover Motorhomes and motor caravans so I hung up to get all my info together and went back to do it via their website. All Ok till it tried to match the car make to the registration which it naturally couldnt do, so I phoned them. All OK till it came to engine being Diesel then it went pear shaped as their system tells them it must be petrol.

So I quizzed him about different chassis makes and such as Fiat, Peugeot, Hymer and Renault and none would be accepted if they were not Petrol. When I explained that this cuts out 90% of Motorhomes he offered to check up with the higher powers and said it was a system mistake and they would accept mine.

They have given me a quote which is competitive with one from COMFORT and both of which are £100 cheaper that Swinton who I am trying to get away from. I dont want to go into details of amount as I want to check some others. Suggestions welcome?

I am with NW Flex plus as I get Travel insurance and breakdown cover on my MH included anyway.

Hope this helps. I have been off this site for over six months and only just manged to crack the log on procedure to get back. The password stuff is more difficult thank my banks

regards

That's interesting ! They've got 6 months to iron out their system then I'll give them a go at insuring my new van, otherwise it will be back to Comfort.

Don't take it personally Andrew. Some of us have had similar problems.


Thanks for the heads up on how to navigate Nationwide.

"Why?" he asked. (Ahhhhh - the naivete of youth!!!) So I said, "If your company can offer a lower quote after I've complained, why wasn't it offered in the first place?"

Totally agree, this type of business is akin to theft.

Ken.

Ps. Welcome back

I had quotes from Safeguard £485, Caravan Club £483, Nationwide £410 and went with Comfort at £306. I excluded the breakdown cover as I get this and my travel insurance on my NW Flex plus account. Thanks for the Comfort tip.
