Well, AL have phoned to say our Triton has arrived! We can't pick it up until the weekend after Easter, as we're busy, but that gives me chance to sort the insurance out. Fortunately, the T5 insurance runs out at the end of April, so I can sort both out together. I have approached the both the Caravan Club and the C&C Club and they have both given competitive quotes for both the caravan and the T5. Do any forum members use either of these? Have any preferences as to which for membership benefits? Or can suggest alternative companies to ask for quotes?

Had the Westfalia towbar fitted Monday, with dedicated VW electrics...ouchie at 645 (sorry, I don't seem to have a pound symbol on my tablet keyboard).

Once we pick it up, I dare say I will have to start up a dedicated thread for my education of all thing Eriba! (and all my stoopid questions!).

Wow how exciting We were wondering how you were getting on. LindaJ's must be ready by now then as she was a few weeks ahead of you.

For insurance, we use Towergate at Cheltenham. I think we found them through the AA and as we are AA members we get a discount.

I used Towergate then they tried to boost the premium because of losses due to bad payers,
I left them and went to SAGA

Whoever you try - assuming it's someone you actually speak to rather than do online, obviously - it's definitely worth trying to squeeze them as much as possible.

As nicely as possible.

So much depends on the disposition of the person on the other end of the phone as well, obviously, as yours. We've been with Towergate for yonks simply because without exception they've been able to whittle the premium down to the point where it simply wasn't worth the faff of going elsewhere.

I've found that if Operative A is less than forthcoming, thank him - or her - politely and ring back later. Chances are you'll get a different person, and with a bit of luck the new person will be someone whose luck was in the previous night or has a promise on for the forthcoming one.

And if it's the same person when you call back, they'll remember how nice you were and have a change of heart about trying to get the premium down.

Real, live operatives all have a book, but they don't have to go by it.

A computer does.

o the fun time of insurance trying the various computerized systems
found that the age of the owner changes the premium, bah!! the younger you are the worse it is. (shouldn't that be the caravan not the owner?)
there is a significant discount if a club towing course taken.

the main reason I went with cc was they have good reputation to sort issues and they did a new for old cover. they are expensive, but there is no extra junk mail or calls from strange firms..

We've been with Cover4Caravans for the past three years and their quote and renewals have always been so competitive that it hasn't been worth going elsewhere.

We've never had a claim but the people you talk to in the office are extremely courteous and couldn't be more helpful so I'm confident that they'd be good to deal with if we had a problem.

They are certainly worth a try.

Thanks people I will try Saga as hubby has a credit card with them I think (they make no money out of us, used just to get points/cashback or something).

Getting excited now though! We might even make it to your meet!

We use Saga because they cover us for up to 365 days continental use, and when we went to Morocco gave a green card at no extra cost
