First post on the forum but have definitely benefitted from resources on here before so thanks.
I will try to do this concisely;
I've owned a lwb 18 plate t6 for 2.5 years. Bought it off a friend as a work van. It was great, loved driving it every day. At the start of this year, my...
Hello thank you for accepting me to the group.
We don’t have a camper van just yet , going to look at one next week but thought we would look at insurance quotes in preparation.
On a comparison site we were quoted between £3200 and £6000 .
Tried kampers , them quoted £4200.
A bit gob smacked...
Hi, Apologies for asking obvious questions.
Any advice on insurance companies that are more T6/ Europe Travel friendly?
Quotes for the 2021 model all around the same amount. So just wanted to see if there are knes to ignore.
So first time van cover went to the default compare website - Quote via Go Compare - £2667.85.
Ooh let me think...
Called A Plan Thatcham - spoke with Callum & Harry - both really knowledgable, £570 inc breakdown and legal cover.
Also quoted Van Cave - as had seen in another post and got a...
Just thought I'd share my first time van insurance info as a newbie to campervan life. Its likely already been discussed many times, but for what is worth, he's some info that hopefully will help others in similar situation.
I have only previously insured cars, so not had any issues, both me...
Hi all, I just wanted to flag this up in case it helps anyone who is shopping around for insurance quotes.
The van is a 2020 reg T6.1 High Line Panel Van that I bought last August(2021) I have since worked through the process of converting to a camper, all the usual mods, including Kitchen with...
I have a brand new van arriving on Thursday. After shopping around for insurance, A-plan came up best for me - additional modifications at no cost was attractive as well.
When I mentioned this forum, they told me they could apply a 10% discount, which saved me £35ish.
Thank you to the...
Hello more experienced T6 enthusiasts.
I am in the initial stages of buying a 2017 T6 Highline, and converting myself. I thought I would try and save myself some time and ask you who the best insurers are for a fully converted T6 camper.
The first quote I received was from a company called...
I made the mistake of taking out a policy with Adrian Flux in the belief that I would get the very best deal from them because they “specialise” in camper van insurance. The policy was due to start effective from 1st Oct 2020 when the conversion will be complete.
I foolishly didn’t even check...
Soon to get my first ever van...so excited! albeit cheesed off because of my process so far :(
I'll keep it brief but in short I've had a new van and extensive build on order since early March. After being messed around by the modification company I finally decided last week to...
I thought I'd give anyone who's looking for insurance the heads up what these clowns did to me.
I applied online through compare the market and got a quote I was happy with. Continued and paid by credit card. Received insurance documents with a few errors on e.g Van was down as a manual and its...
Got my van insurance renewal quote a few weeks ago and did the rounds on the comparison websites.
Renewal £350 Admiral.
Cheapest comparison £230 Hastings Direct!
So checked earlier this week, Hastings want over £750.
Had another go today and its over £1000!
So at the age of 65, I bought a van. I then ask Direct line about insurance and they just transferred over from my car until 17th Feb.
I phoned up again to renew and to cut a very long story short, they shouldn’t have.
If I modify the van, they can’t insure.
CVD quote £550 with mods, £410...
I’ve just finished a six month ban under the totting up rules (minor speeding offences). My wife’s multi-vehicle policy now won’t touch me and nor will my camper insurers. I’ve had to pay over 2k on the car and I’m getting some proper ludicrous quotes on the van, despite me stating I’ll only...
I’m currently in the market for a camper and currently looking at T6 conversions and stock californias. What’s the advice on approaching insurance? I’ve had costs in for a California from a few places and the price range is insane. Through the standard comparison websites I’d use for car...
Got my renewal from A Plan, £535 for me and the missus, fully comp. Rung brentacre and they said £510. Rung back A plan , they couldnt beat it but they matched it. We stuck with A Plan for another 12 months :thumbsup:
