Insurance Options

You are responsible for making sure your campervan and your customers are properly insured, but we will do our best to help.

Inclusive Price: One of Quirky Campers’ unique selling points is our transparent and inclusive pricing model. For this reason insurance must always be included in prices we quote to potential hirers. Please bear this in mind when setting your prices . You cannot charge customers for insurance separately if you are advertising on Quirky Campers. 

Warning: Motor insurance costs went up on average by 58% in 2023. The following prices were updated Feb 2024. Please bear this in mind when comparing with your previous year’s premium.

Note: Make sure you are insuring your campervan for the right amount so you are not either over paying on insurance or underinsured.

Option 2: Daily Self Drive Hire

  • Broker: Alan Boswell or call 01603 915110
  • Underwriter: Marker Study
  • Cost: 
    • 1 Day: £36.45
    • 2 Days: £24.11 per day
    • 3-14 Days: £19.99 per day
    • 14+ Days: £18.85 per day

+ Pros

  • Provides excellent flexibility
  • Great way to get started with renting with minimal financial risk.
  • An excellent option especially in your first season with Quirky.
  • Cheaper for longer bookings

- Cons

  • Does not cover you 
  • More admin than annual option
  • More expensive for short bookings
  • Ends up being more expensive for popular vehicles 
  • Extra charges apply for short notice (<24h) hires and extensions

Note: The daily cover must be arranged and bought by you in advance of each hire. You will need to send the driver hire form (filled out by the customer) to Alan Boswell with the current mileage and Campervan's value. Alan Boswell will bill you directly.

Note: You will still need a Social Domestic & Pleasure (SD&P) insurance policy to cover you when the vehicle is not on hire. See SD&P options below that we know allow you to have a daily SDH policy in addition (most don’t allow this). 

Annual Social Domestic & Pleasure (SD&P):

If you opt for the Daily SDH you will still need to cover you and your family. Here are some options that we know don’t prevent you from hiring out with daily cover for your customers. 

Adrian Flux

  • Cost: from £400 to £1200*
  • Terms: Pro-rata refundable with £35 cancellation fee

* Rates vary depending on vehicle value, post code, parking and named driver history

  • Cost: from £400 to £1200*
  • Terms: Varied cancellation terms with scaled refunds, some pro-rata. Please speak to Alan Boswell about individual underwriters Ts&Cs regarding add ons for SDH.

Breakdown Cover:

In addition to the Self Drive Hire policy you also must haveBreakdown cover in order to rent out via Quirky Campers -

  • Cost: £185 per year

+ Pros

  • Assures you are covered, specifically designed for your Alan Boswell SDH policy
  • Covers you, your named drivers and all renters

- Cons

  • Only available if you take the annual SDH policy with Alan Boswell

Option 2: RAC Business Cover

If you’re going with Adrian Flux and the Alan Boswell daily add-on option, the only reliable option is RAC Business cover. 

  • Service provided by RAC
  • Cost: £190 per year or £19 per month (can stop/start cover when you have rentals)

+ Pros

  • Assures you are covered, covers vehicle for hire and reward
  • Covers you, your named drivers and all renters 
  • Flexible and monthly options
  • Available no matter which insurance policy you take

- Cons

  • Extra paperwork
  • Won’t cover your vehicle if it requires a C1, is over 3.5 tonnes or over 7.5m in length

IMPORTANT: If you go with Adrian Flux for SD&P their optional breakdown cover is not a suitable product as it does not cover your hirers and renting out your campervan can invalidate their breakdown cover.
