Additional cover for your motorhome

There are many benefits that come as standard with our Comprehensive insurance. But for extra peace of mind, we also offer a range of additional cover options to ensure all your needs are met.

Legal Protection

If you are involved in an accident that's not your fault and was caused by a known insured third party, we will provide up to £100,000 towards costs for trained claims handlers to recover uninsured losses following an accident. We will cover claims as long as an independent legal representative believes you can win your case.

Our trained claims handlers seek recovery for any uninsured losses from a third party such as:

  • Travelling expenses
  • Loss of earnings
  • Compensation for personal injury.

With Legal Protection you can also benefit from:

  • Unlimited access to motoring legal advice for you and your immediate family
  • Cover if you need to take legal action, or defend an appeal, against a motor trader in a dispute involving the purchase, servicing, or repair of your vehicle
  • The option of up to four hours driver confidence coaching to help you get back in the driving seat if you have lost your confidence for any reason
  • Up to £10,000 of legal costs in respect of any legal claim to pursue the recovery of illegal clamping or towing fees relating to your vehicle.

Legal Protection comes as standard with our Saga Plus Motorhome Insurance cover level but can also be added to a Saga Select insurance policy at any time, view more information on our motorhome insurance cover levels.

Increased Personal Accident

Regardless of whose fault it is, if you or your named spouse/domestic partner are seriously injured as a result of an accident involving your car, our Comprehensive policies include £5,000 compensation for selected serious injuries as standard.

Increased Personal Accident extends cover for serious injuries or accidental death from £5,000 up to £100,000 per person. Although it’s unlikely you'll ever need to make a claim, if the worst does happen the benefit paid out could be substantial and help to compensate for things like loss of earnings, making adjustments to your home, or even just to help paying for things like taxis to medical appointments.

In addition, this optional extra also includes cover for a wide range of smaller injuries, such as a broken wrist, ankle or nose. Emergency dental treatment is also covered, as is counselling therapy, and you even get £300 if you spend a night in hospital, with £200 for each consecutive night, up to a total of 30.

Family members in your vehicle are also covered, and you and your named spouse/partner are even covered when driving borrowed vehicles.

Replacement Car Extension for Theft or Total Loss

Our Comprehensive policies include a replacement car as standard if an approved repairer is repairing your motorhome following an accident in the UK.

For an additional cost you can add Replacement Car Extension to your policy. With this cover we can also offer you a replacement car if your motorhome is stolen or written off – keeping you mobile and giving you time to find and purchase a new vehicle.

We also include a £100 cash benefit, which could help towards things like replacement car delivery costs or pre-purchase vehicle inspections. There are no restrictions on what you choose to spend the money on though; the pay-out is automatic and there’s no need to send in any receipts.
