Motorhome and Campervan Insurance
Before you set off make sure you have the right insurance in place for your campervan
Motorhome and Campervan Insurance
Motorhomes have always been popular with families and couples of all ages. They give flexibility and the freedom of the open road. With all amenities and comfortable beds on board, what could be better? You can pull over for lunch to take in a view or find a campsite that you like the look of and stop for the night.
But before you set off, you need to make sure you have the right insurance in place for your campervan.
What is Motorhome and Campervan Insurance?
Motorhome and Campervan Insurance is a type of motor insurance specifically designed for residential vehicles (RVs). Like other motor policies, it covers you if you are involved in an accident. However, unlike car or van insurance, it can also cover the personal possessions you have on board, as well as any awnings or equipment specific to your campervan.
This means you can take to the road, knowing you are fully covered if anything goes wrong.

How Much does Motorhome Insurance Cost?
The cost of Motorhome and Campervan insurance will depend on a number of factors:
• The size of your motorhome or campervan (motorhomes are generally larger than campervans so the cost of insurance may be higher to reflect this).
• The size of the engine in your motorhome or campervan
• The age and model of your motorhome or campervan
• Where your motorhome or campervan is stored when you’re not using it
• The age of the driver
• Your claims history (insurers may take into account any recent accidents in your car or other vehicle, as well as any in your campervan).

When might I need High Net Worth insurance rather than a standard Home insurance policy?
If you have personal assets (excluding the value of your home) over £100,000, it’s likely that a High Net Worth insurance product would give you better protection than a standard Home insurance policy. This is particularly true if you have a number of high value items in your home, such as a jewellery or watch collection, antiques or a classic car.
