We don’t want you to set off on your motorhome holiday only to wonder – Am I properly insured to drive? The team at Lowland Motorhome Hire are here to advise you on the driver protection and Motorhome Insurance you need to help explore the UK and Europe without worry
We all know that Motorhoming in Britain is getting more popular and why not, it is truly an amazing way to see our fantastic scenery as well as having the comforts of home.
You are not tied to having to be in an exact place at an exact time.
You can follow the weather, and with wild camping a hidden gem in Scotland, you do not have to have your views from the hotel window dictated, you can choose your own views. There is never a truer saying, ‘Home is Where You Park It’.
However, due to the exceptional demand for Motorhoming, as well as caravanning, we would like to advise customers to be aware of hiring from someone who is not registered or from someone who is maybe just simply hiring their own motorhome to make some ‘extra’ money.
Believe you me, your life could depend on it without you even knowing (without being over dramatic). There are many hidden threats to you and your family.
One of the things to check is whether you have appropriate insurance cover to protect you while on hire.
Do you know even if someone is hiring out their own motorhome or campervan to good friends or family members on an informal basis, they still need to have comprehensive insurance, as if they were a professional company providing motorhome hire.
Such insurance is often referred to as self-drive hire insurance.
On many an occasion, and without knowing it, some families will be driving around the country with the incorrect or no insurance cover at all.
You (the driver) must be personally covered for driving that motorhome.
Some people are covering themselves (privately) and then hiring it out without knowledge that they need self-drive hire insurance.
Always ask for documentation with your details as driver
