Insurance Woes

Insurance Woes – and why you should double check the details!

Feb 7

Wow, I was so surprised to learn that not all insurance companies will cover your van. In fact, there are only a few who do. It’s got something to do with the fact that the van has been converted (not in a religious sense, mind you 🙂 ), but had modifications. If you are looking to buy a van and cover yourself on your travels, best do your homework.

I had my van insured with a prominent Australian supermarket. I read a Facebook group that someone had trouble insuring their van and I didn’t know why, so I did my research. Sure enough, my van wasn’t insured. Thankfully I hadn’t taken it anywhere in the few days that lapsed from bringing it home to when I discovered it wasn’t insured. 

I rectified it immediately. I sat on the phone from 8 am, but you can imagine how scary that was and how devastating it would have been if something had happened and it wasn’t covered.

Don’t go for the cheapest option either. One insurer offered me a full replacement at the price I paid and lots of extras. When I googled reviews, I was astounded about how awful they had been to previous van owners and oh so, difficult to work with.

I made sure I had all the van windows covered, I got a hire car and accommodation paid just in case. You never know what’s going to happen out on the road and I know I’m going to feel much more secure knowing that my van is covered.
