Campervan Insurance FAQs
  • Do I need campervan insurance?
    • Yes. Insurance is a legal requirement if you own a campervan.

    How do I estimate my mileage?
    • If you drive your campervan regularly, you can simply take the typical number of miles you drive in a week and multiply by 52 to get your annual mileage. If you use your campervan for occasional longer trips, you will have to figure out the distance in miles you will be travelling for each planned trip. Apps like Google Maps can be helpful for figure out the estimated mileage of each journey.

    Can I drive a campervan on my car insurance?
    • You’ll usually need specialist campervan insurance if you drive a campervan. This is because you will use your campervan for sleeping and cooking as well as driving, whereas you only need to drive your car.

    Does my home contents insurance cover items in my campervan?
    • Some items in your campervan may be covered by contents insurance if you have out-of-home cover included in your policy. However, if you have items that are in your campervan full-time, they will not be covered by home contents insurance.

    What’s the difference between a motorhome and a campervan?
    • Campervans are generally small and have very basic facilities. Motorhomes on the other hand have permanent fixtures and clearly defined areas for living and driving.
