Talking about camper van insurance: Scenic insurance

Otis and Us

Camper van Insurance

I know camper van insurance is probably not the most exciting thing to write about, yet it is an essential requirement for owning a campervan. When I started my travel blog I made a personal vow to share our thoughts on products and places that we love, are passionate about, or that I think you would be interested in.

It was that time of year when our campervan insurance renewal quote popped through our letterbox. I always dread this, as gone are the days when you are rewarded for loyalty and as such, I know we will need to spend hours searching the net and shopping around for the best deal before parting with a substantial amount of money in return for peace of mind and piece of paper. So when Scenic contacted us to introduce their motor home policy to the Otis and Us team, I was thrilled to learn more.

Our Criteria

We always look at our requirements each year prior to our search, as often they can change from year to year. We try to sit down and make a list of our needs and expectations before shopping around.

  • A reasonable price
  • Fully comprehensive
  • Mr Otis and Us as the main drive and me as a named driver
  • Business miles required
  • Cover for a DIY VW T5 camper van

Scenic – Customer service

Mr Otis and Us deals with nearly all aspects of our camper van from seeking out specialists to help us with the conversion, arranging insurance, breakdown cover and planning for services and MOT. I won’t lie, I spend my time planning and scrapbooking ideas for our conversion, campervan storage, accessories and travel plans. So basically we make a great team.

Mr Otis and Us contacted Scenic over the telephone and the customer service was second to none. The advisor was professional, friendly, knowledgable and efficient, answering all of our questions and tailoring our insurance to meet our needs and requirements. It can be difficult to obtain insurance for a self build/ DIY camper van and I am pleased to say that Scenic met our needs. I was impressed that Scenic offer can arrange cover for a self build campervan, and Scenic offer options for European cover.  Our insurance cover was extremely competitive with the added bonus that it included business miles for Mr Otis and Us and his day job. We also had another couple of questions regarding our cover, and called back to find a second advisor equally professional helpful and knowledgable. We were thrilled with our quote and all our requirements and needs were fulfilled…it can be difficult to find cover for a self build conversion. The experience was a pleasure and we were sent our documents and a booklet approximately a week after taking out the policy; this included the booklet policy details and paperwork.

Our Verdict.

Scenic offered us insurance cover tailored to our specific needs and requirements. The customer service was excellent, the advisor answered all of our questions and provided a competitive quote that we were extremely happy with for our DIY converted T5 camper. Happy days.
