Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is a motorhome?
    • A motorhome is a vehicle that can be used for both transport and accommodation. They come in a variety of sizes, from large A-class models to smaller models, such as micro motorhomes or campervans.

    Do I need motorhome insurance?
    • Yes. It’s a legal requirement that you have insurance if you own a motorhome.

    Can I drive a motorhome using my car insurance?
    • Some motorhomes can be covered under car insurance if they are quite small. However, the vast majority of insurers will require you to take out specialist insurance. Contact your car insurance provider if you require more information.

    Do I need a special licence to drive a motorhome?
    • The type of licence you need to drive a motorhome depends on the weight of the vehicle and when you obtained your driving licence.

      If you passed your driving test before 1st January 1997, then you will be able to drive the vast majority of motorhomes without a special licence. However, if you passed after 1st January 1997, you can only drive vehicles that weigh up to 3,500kg with a trailer weighing a maximum of 750kg.

      If your licence is not valid to drive your motorhome, then you need to obtain an entry-level HGV licence.

    Does my home contents insurance cover items in my motorhome?
    • If you have out-of-home cover included in your contents insurance, then some items will be insured while inside your motorhome. However, this does not apply to everything and won’t usually cover items that are in your motorhome full-time (e.g., TVs, dishes and plates, etc.)

    What’s the difference between a motorhome and a campervan?
    • Motorhomes have permanent fixtures and clearly defined areas for driving and living. On the other hand, campervans tend to have very basic facilities and are a lot smaller.

    How would I be covered if I crashed my motorhome?
    • To be protected by your insurance in the event of an accident, you will need comprehensive cover. This cover could also include arrangements to get you, your motorhome and your possessions home is your vehicle is written off. However, cover can vary, so make sure you check your policy documents carefully.
