Whether you’re travelling in a different part of the UK or in the EU, you’ll need affordable cover. Call us for our best campervan insurance quotes. We also cover motorhomes.
What’s the difference between campervans and motorhomes?
One of the biggest differences is that motorhomes are built onto the original vehicle chassis and the back of a motorhome is designed and built by a coach-builder company such as Auto-Sleeper, Swift, or Autotrail.
A campervan, on the other hand, is a van modified for camping. This could range from a bed being added to the back of the van all the way up to a full conversion with everything you would get in a coach-built motorhome added to the van.
Do I need special insurance for a campervan?
Campervans usually need specialist campervan insurance because insurers will want to know if you’re not driving a standard van. This is because taking out van insurance for a campervan would not provide adequate cover as campervans need cover for camping equipment, awnings, cover abroad, mirroring NCB from your first car, etc.
How much is campervan insurance?
Campervan insurance doesn’t have to be expensive, and we can often tailor cover to meet your needs and budget. Just give us a call for a quote – cover starts from £175, and we can offer discounts if you don’t use your camper for long periods or you’re part of a campervan club.
Limited mileage: we offer a discount on the cost of your campervan insurance policy if you only drive a few thousand miles a year. This usually works for customers who use their campervan a few times a year in the UK or Europe.
Camper owners club or forum member: we work in association with a number of clubs and forums. This could knock off an extra 15% from your policy price.
Do I need campervan contents insurance?
