There are three levels of cover you can choose from for your motorhome:

  • Fully comprehensive: This covers accidental damage, vandalism, fire, theft and any third party damage or injury you cause.

  • Third party, fire and theft: This covers any third party damage or injury as well as damage caused by fire, or if your motorhome is stolen.

  • Third party only: This only covers third party damage or injury you cause while driving your motorhome. Not all insurers offer this level of cover.

These levels are the same as those offered by a car insurance policy. Here is how to work out which level you should choose.

It is a legal requirement to insure your motorhome, and you must have at least third party only cover to drive it on the road.

  • Foreign use cover: This covers you to drive your motorhome in Europe for a set number of days during the policy, e.g. 90 days each year.

  • Contents cover: This covers the personal belongings you keep in your motorhome up to a set amount, e.g. 5,000. Find out what contents are covered here.

  • New for old cover: This means your motorhome or any contents will be replaced with a new model if they are stolen or damaged beyond repair.

  • Extra cover options: You can add policy extra like breakdown cover, excess protection and travel insurance to extend your cover.

You can then use this comparison to find motorhome insurance policies that offer the protection you need, and choose the best cover at the cheapest price.
