Long trip van insurance

Postby smallvanbigplan » 29 Apr 2016, 14:07

Hi there, we are planning a 12-month trip across Europe in our T3, and having problems finding comprehensive insurance because of the vehicle’s age ('88). We’d like to insure for fire and theft as well as 3rd party for the whole trip, but can’t find anyone who’ll provide it. Any advice on this?

There must be specialist insurers that will cover this, but it will bliming cost, years ago when I did a long cross continental adventure we had our 30 day Europe cover & then nothing for the remaining 8 months. A risk but then life is risk! Have a great time.

I don't know who does cover the overlanding market but drop Nene or similar company an email they must have customers who do this in much more valuable vehicles and manage it
I know my Kiwi friends had problems getting insurance as they were leaving the country and thus had no UK residential address but they did manage to get 6 months cover for their europe tour, but it cost them more than the previous 2 years in the UK had done and they ended up having to register the vehicle to his mum's in York to get around the UK address issue

Give Glynwoods a call and ask to be put through to Paul in classic cars department, he will probably be able to help.
