When looking for motorhome cover there are many points that you might want to consider. You will of course want to make sure you get the cheapest insurance possible. However at the same time it is essential that you ensure you have got the right cover for your needs. Take out a policy without comparing the features along with the cost and you could find yourself unable to make a claim on the policy.
The first choice you have for taking out motorhome cover is whether you need fully comprehensive insurance or third party fire and theft. This would depend of course on how much you have paid out for your motorhome or how much it is worth. If you have a brand new motorhome or it is over a certain amount then you would have no alternative but to pay out for fully comprehensive insurance. If your motorhome is old or you are buying a second hand vehicle then you might want to consider third party fire and theft as this is the cheapest way to cover your vehicle.
If you are taking fully comprehensive motorhome insurance then there are many features that you would need to check. The first of these would relate as to how you plan on using your motorhome. If you are going to be touring around Europe then you would need to ensure that European protection was added into your policy. This is essential as if you were to break down or be involved in an accident or suffer any kind of loss while in Europe and did not have protection, you would not be able to claim on the insurance. With cover you would be able to claim for recovery of your vehicles and for repairs. The insurance company would generally pay out for you to stay in alternative accommodation while your motorhome was being repaired, up to a certain amount.
A fully comprehensive policy would payout for loss of belongings in the motorhome. Some providers will payout new for old and others could take depreciation into account. If you are offered new for old protection then your belongings would be replaced brand new of course. You would have to go around your motorhome and make an inventory of your belongings so that you would be able to state the amount you want to insure.
This amount would be paid back in the event that you lost everything.
To keep down the cost of your motorhome cover you could offer to pay out more in excess than what the insurance providers asks for. The excess is what all insurance companies will ask that you pay towards any claim that you have to make. The amount you choose would have to come out of your own pocket in a lump sum so be aware of this when choosing the amount. You could also boost up the security of your campervan in order to keep down the cost of the premiums. By installing steering and wheel locks or a tracking device you can make savings on the premiums.
