One of the first things you may want to remember when looking for your motorhome insurance policy is that not all policies offer the same. Here are some of the many things that you may want to consider.
You have the freedom to travel anywhere and at anytime, but do you have European cover and how many days coverage do you have? European cover is offered by providers based on days with some offering you more than others so always check in the benefits on offer. Is such as your portable TV, your DVD player or radio covered in your insurance policy and if so up to how much may you be able to claim back in the event they were stolen or damaged? Should the worst happen and your motorhome was damaged to the extent that you could not stay in it may your insurance policy pay out towards a stay in alternative accommodation? If this is included then remember to find out how many days and up to how much per day. Does the insurance provider you are considering going with for your motorhome insurance offer you lower premiums if you are the member of a specialist motorhome club? If not, consider looking for one that does if you have a membership. Is legal cover included in with the cost of your insurance or may the insurance provider allow you to add it in for a little extra each month? This can come in very handy if you are the victim in an accident which you were injured in and which caused you to have to take time from work. You could claim up to so much towards recovering costs. Does the insurance company offer a UK helpline that is operated 24/7? If you had to make a claim out of regular office hours and they were closed, it could add to the stress of the accident if you had to wait to make a claim. Check to find out if the provider you are considering offers limited mileage insurance. You could make savings on your insurance when your motorhome is off the road; say during the winter months if you take limited mileage cover. You may state how many miles you may travel with your motorhome during the year and stick under this limit. Check to find out if the provider offers you the option of adding in breakdown cover for a little more each month. Breakdown cover can be very valuable and if you have it added in with the same provider you could save a great deal of money compared to taking it out on its own.
These are just a few of the considerations you may want to take into account when looking into taking out your motorhome insurance. Whichever policy you take out always make sure that you have checked over the small print thoroughly as this is where you may be able to find out the limits on the cover and what you were and were not protected against.
