    Just got a great quote from Academy Insurance - less than £500 for a 2010 T5 Camper, 3 additional named drivers, breakdown cover and free legal cover. £170 cheaper than my renewal quote and literally 5 minutes on the phone and no hassle compared to other insurers I have dealt with, where they...
  3. T5 Conversions
    Hi Guys, I'm looking for a decent insurer for my van / camper. Trouble is it probably won't get converted by the DVLA because the only thing it doesn't have is a fixed hob, everything else is there though. So, it's somewhere in between. Any recommendations for a decent insurer I can contact...

    Been finding out that not all insurance companies do cover for 8 seater vehicles. "They don't do vans!" Yes i've tried to explain it's not a van - it's a bus! And secondly it's a factory fitted standard Caravelle interior. They won't listen! :( Anyway, just wondered if there were any...

    Does anyone have campervan insurance that does not limit their mileage? My current insurers only cover me for 9000 a year and I am nearly on 8000 after 4 months. I have been offered the chance to move to another company that will cover me for 12000. I have paid £275 for 9000 which may last...
