What is classic car insurance?

Classic car insurance is an insurance policy specifically designed for vehicles that are classified as 'classics', such as vehicles of a certain age, or specialist nature and only used as a second car. A specialist classic car insurance policy typically offers low mileage discounts based on the annual distance you drive your vehicle. Most policies offer car club membership discounts and agreed value.

Our available features and benefits:

Here are some frequently asked questions about classic car insurance.

Do you provide an agreed valuation?

Yes, and it's free! All we need are 6 photos - front, back, both sides, engine bay and the interior. The photos also need to show the registration plate.

Some other companies may ask for costly independent valuations and charge for the agreed value process, however, ours is completely free! We do not charge for agreed valuations.

I am a member of a classic car club. Do you offer any discounts?

Yes, we do! We offer an additional discount to our clients who are part of an owners or car club. This is just one of the many ways that we support and engage with the classic car community.

When does a car become a classic?

This is open to many interpretations and there is no straight forward simple answer. The age of the vehicle, history and nostalgia, and desirability all affect whether a car is classified as a classic.

If you come across a broker with a tick box criteria for classic cars, then we would say they don't really appreciate the cars and the culture surrounding owning a classic vehicle.

Do you provide breakdown cover for classic cars?

Our breakdown cover is optional and it can be extended to cover European travel. Our breakdown cover also includes home start as standard and roadside assistance.

Should my classic cars be kept in a locked garage overnight?

Ideally, however, we can cover vehicles kept on a drive subject to the vehicle value and postcode area.

We can also provide cover when vehicles are stored away from the home, either in professional storage or a garage away from home.

How do I reduce the cost of my classic vehicle insurance?

You can reduce the cost of your classic car insurance policy by reviewing your annual mileage. If you only do 500 miles, but you're insured for 5000, then reducing this to 1500 could save you money. If you do come close to the reduced mileage limit, then you can give us a quick call to increase it mid-term.
