Hello, I've just bought my first T5 and was surprised that insurance bus so expensive. I'm paying over £600 per year for up to 5,000 miles in a 2003 van. I'm in central London, don't have any no claims discount and no other vehicle. Any recommendations? Some firms refused to even quote.

Hi ehurst!

The above in bold will certainly be your problem, we do have some really good schemes available for these vans so by all means drop me a PM with your details and I'll give you a call to see what we can do. T:

Kind regards
Dan.

Something to look out for - i found out too late. i have been with Scenic insurance for 7 years. I couldnt transfer my no claims bonus to the new van when I starte with them , so i started out with 0 no claims. anyway after 7 years I moved as they couldn't insure me whilst the van is being converted.
When i asked for my no claims letter, they said I only have two years no claims. when I asked them to explain I didnt get a convincing answer; except that the policies that the broker put me on did not accrue any no claims apart from the last insurer which I had for 2 years.
Apparently some of the classic insurance policies and motor home policies do not acrue any no claims. So with 30 years of no accidents I now find myself with only two years no claims. Not only that even though Adrian flux phoned my insurance company and verified my years of no claims driving - they could only give me a no claims letter for 2 years; they then charged me an admin fee on top of the extra payment - all within the 14 day period!
the other thing to watch out for is that you only get your no-claims letter after you cancel your insurance - so if there is a difference then you have to pay the fee!
so in summary there is a difference between no claims driving and no claims bonus - they arent the same!

Dan at A Plan

Tried A Plan once again for insurance. This will be the third year in a row I have tried them. As usual, they cannot insure me. I have decided not to bother trying them anymore.

Hello Ray,

There must be a reason as our schemes are designed to cover modified and campers.

Can I check that you called us on the 01635 office. ?. A standard A-Plan branch might not have the schemes we do.

If you want to PM me your details, I can see why we were not able to help.

All the best

AVOID 2Gether insurance,

I had a bad experience with them. Pushy sales rep, talked me into some useless club I had to join, which I didn't need. Realised it was a lame deal and cancelled the next day, but they cleverly steer around standard policy of a free cancellation by telling you there will be a fee to cancel, somewhere amongst all the standard words they read out to you over the phone. Naughty really, as it's a telephone sale you should be entitled to a free change of mind, especially within 24 like I was trying to do.

They even threaten to play back the recording of the call when they told me. Like I said, too clever, too sly, AVOID. If they are being sneaky like this, they will be sneaky in many other ways too.

Went with A-Plan. Seem a more reasonable bunch of people.

Thank you :)

We have a great relationship with our clients and like to give back.

Proudly sponsored the Camperjam and show and shine and spent time with our clients admiring the vans and campers.

A good friend even won best T5 at the show and we posed for a photo.

If you need anything during the year then let me know.

I'm with A-Plan and I'd just like to thank Dan for taking the time to get me what seems like absolutely the right level of cover and for dealing with me in a transparent and professional manner. (quite unlike at least one other well known specialist insurer who I'd been dealing with)

A-Plan for a second year, first time in all my years insuring vehicles any insurer ever played straight and fair with a renewal, and I have used one of the other insurers advertising here notorious for price hiking.

But beyond that straight talking and good cover.

Thanks for the great feedback and I passed this on to David :)

David is a regular at Busfest and Camperjam and so knows the vans and scene really well.

All the best
