Comprehensive Insurance:

Coverage: This all-encompassing insurance covers damages to your own campervan and any damage you might cause to other vehicles or property, including theft and fire damage.

Ideal for Comparing When: You have a high-value campervan or frequently embark on long trips.

Example: If you’re exploring the Lake District and have an accident, comprehensive insurance ensures both your campervan and any third-party damages are covered.

Third-Party, Fire and Theft:

Coverage: This policy covers damages to others caused by you, theft of your campervan, and fire damage, but not damages to your own vehicle in at-fault accidents.

Ideal for Comparing When: You own an older campervan or use it less frequently but still require significant risk protection.

Example: If your campervan is stolen while parked in Cornwall, this insurance covers the loss, but not self-inflicted damages like a dented door.

Third-Party Only:

Coverage: The most basic insurance, covering damages to other vehicles and property in accidents where you’re at fault.

Ideal for Comparing When: You’re on a tight budget or own a lower-value campervan that’s seldom used.

Example: In a minor parking mishap in Brighton, this insurance would cover the other vehicle’s repairs, but not your own campervan’s scratches.

Key Features and Add-Ons to Consider:

Breakdown Cover:

Benefits: Offers assistance ranging from roadside repairs to towing, crucial for long journeys or regular use.

Example: If you face a breakdown on the M1, this cover ensures help is at hand to get your campervan back on the road.

European Cover:

Benefits: Provides coverage when traveling in Europe, aligning with different countries’ regulations.

Example: During a tour through France, this cover acts like your UK insurance, covering minor accidents abroad.

Contents Insurance:

Benefits: Protects personal belongings inside your campervan, such as electronics or outdoor gear.

Example: If someone breaks into your campervan and steals your hiking equipment, contents insurance covers the loss.

Windscreen Cover:

Benefits: Covers windscreen damage, which is common and can be expensive to repair.

Example: A chipped windscreen from a flying stone in Scotland would be covered under this policy.

Legal Expenses Cover:

Benefits: Assists with legal costs in case of disputes following an accident.
