Mrs Wilkins - Self-Drive Hire Insurance

Motorhome and Campervan Self-Drive Hire Insurance in detail

Our comprehensive cover sets us apart:

  • Competitive premiums The price will reflect the risks associated with insuring motorhomes and campervans, rather than other self-drive hire vehicles.
  • Discounts available For fleets of motorhomes and campervans and for most multi-vehicle risks.
  • Overhead cabin cover Provided as standard.
  • Fire damage Cover for damage to the motorhome caused by cooking and heating appliances is covered as standard (subject to a 25% co-insurance clause).
  • Theft cover Included as standard (subject to a 25% co-insurance clause)
  • Unlimited hires Maximise the income from your motorhome or campervan by hiring it out as often as possible without being charged more by your insurer.
  • International cover available Allowing your motorhome to be used abroad at sensible rates.
  • Free 'pleasure' use for owners/operators So you can enjoy your vehicle.
  • Full annual cover for motorhomes Vehicles are insured whether out on rental or parked at your premises ("off-hire" cover).

  • Yes. Insurers normally expect an electronic tracking device to be fitted to a motorhome valued in excess of £40,000.

  • We can arrange self-drive hire insurance for all kinds of motorhome, motor caravan and campervan.

  • Insurers generally restrict cover on motor home self-drive hire to those aged between 21 to 75 and those who have held a Full UK or EU licence for two years. As usual, exceptions to these restrictions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

  • A co-insurance clause makes you responsible for a proportion of any loss. For example, a 25% co-insurance clause would mean that you are responsible for a quarter of any loss with the insurer covering the remaining 75%. On self-drive hire insurance policies, a co-insurance clause is always applied to theft-by-hirer cover and for fire damage claims caused by cooking or heating appliances.

  • Excesses start from £500 and applies to all damage claims (including glass breakage).

  • Yes. Some insurers have approved groups you can hire to instantly. In some cases you will need to seek approval from the insurer before you can complete the hire contract.

  • The most important factor in the rating of motorhomes is the value of the vehicle. A midrange motorhome will generally cost less to insure than an A-class motorhome. Full written quotations are available on request.

  • Yes. Some insurers will exclude use at festivals but we can provide this valuable cover.
