motorhomee insurance

Posted before on this subject.. After Saga we contacted NFU, (we have a local branch - brilliant. Just renewed and noticed they didn't have details of our tracker, phoned and got another £40 off.

KeiththeBigUn It must be simply the new vans cost to insure? I am with Comfort and change vans this coming Tuesday. Last year for the Rapido I paid £396 fully comp, no breakdown cover. To change and renew my brand new van with 12 days before my renewal was due my premium for the Swift Kon-tiki was only £280.60p! :P Again no breakdown cover as the new van is covered by Fiat. And to top off the deal they did not charge me an admin fee for changing vans. Bargin I think.....

xgx Check on your 'no claims bonus' (ncb) with your current insurer!

Comfort and as far as I'm aware, MHF ins policies have no ncb element ... I've changed this year simply because if I hadn't, I'd have lost my acquired ncb!!

Techno100 Yep we pay £326 for same Dave with safeguard and still don't have full no claims

DTPCHEMICALS Thats business.

Screw em when you have chance.

Premiums have increased during the last 6 months, world catastophes etc.
We pay aprox £360 which includes eu breakdown and recovery

i think that is not too bad.

Yes but I can't shop around for the swap can I? Entirely in their hands. Probably cheaper to go for a new policy if I go for the deal now I'm home again, (it's still for sale).

I think it's a pity the insurance is called Motorhomefacts because I like and respect everything Dave has done and the value this site brings to us all, but even though I'm sure it's not really HIM, it's his name over the door.

JustRadio Don't think so but in the end trying to do a deal in the two days I had available has proved too hard so if it's still for sale when I get back at the end of the month I'll go for it.

Why are all motorhomes for sale in the North! (Don't answer this but it always seems that way).

Apparently it's a higher cost vehicle to repair but it seems strange to me. Anyway I suppose that since I'd probably get sixpence back if I went for a refund it's still my best option, but not very happy.

I don't know why I'm buying it anyway really, just caught my eye as a neat little bundle. Perhaps I won't...
I'd be stunned as well. Is it worth contacting them again just in case whoever you spoke to has got it wrong?
