Frequently asked motorhome insurance questions

Need help? If you have a question about Saga Motorhome Insurance, you may find the answer in our Frequently Asked Questions section. We've made a list of all the questions that we are asked most often, and provided helpful answers as follows:

Before buying a Saga Motorhome insurance policy...
What are the maximum dimensions of a motorhome that Saga can cover?

There are no size restrictions for motorhomes.

Do you have any additional cover options?

We have a range of additional cover options to help you tailor our cover to your specific needs. See our Additional Cover Options section for more information.

Can I add additional or temporary drivers to my policy during the year?

Yes, you can add temporary drivers to your policy for up to a total of 28 days and additional drivers can also be added to your policy, dependent on the drivers details being acceptable to your underwriter. 

To add another driver or temporary driver to your policy, you will need to know the additional driver's name, date of birth and how long they have held their licence. You also need to know if they have had any motoring claims, accidents, incidents or convictions in the last 5 years. If they have had any claims or motoring convictions, you will need to know the date of the incident and what happened/ the conviction code before calling.

If you would like to add a another driver or temporary driver to your policy, please contact our Customer Service team on 0800 904 7763.

What is your 3-year fixed price?

Our Saga Plus cover level comes with a 3-year fixed price. This means you can expect to pay the same price for three years. So if you choose to stay next year and there have been no changes to your policy details, your price will be no more than you paid for the first year.

We have also introduced our Claims Promise, which means your No Claim Discount while you stay with Saga will not be affected by claims caused by theft, fire, storm, flood, animal damage or if your vehicle is hit while parked.

You're free to leave at any time with no cancellation charges and make amendments to your policy, such as changing your vehicle, with no admin fees to pay. However, changes to your policy may change your price.

View the full terms and conditions and find out more about our 3-year fixed price.

Can I drive in the EU?

Yes, EU cover is included as standard for an unlimited period of time. Check which countries are covered.

Are my keys covered?

Yes, if you have a Saga Plus policy, you'll get Key Protection as standard with up to £2,500 of cover. We also cover up to £250 for wear and tear. If you choose a Saga Select policy, you can choose to add Key Protection as an optional extra when you're getting a quote for £9.99 a year. With Key Protection, there's no excess to pay and your NCD won't be affected.

Without Key Protection, your vehicle’s ignition key is covered if it is lost or damaged. If it is stolen, and the person who has taken it is likely to know where your vehicle is, we will also pay to replace the relevant locks. However, there will be an excess to pay and the claim will affect your NCD. Please see your Policy Book for full terms, conditions and exclusions.

Are personal belongings covered?

Yes. You’re covered for the following:

  • up to £1,500 for clothing and personal belongings that you keep in your motorhome, with a maximum of £100 for any one item;
  • up to £500 for camping equipment and gas cylinders kept near your motorhome, with a maximum of £100 for any one item;
  • up to £1,500 for awnings;
  • up to £700 for television and audio equipment, with a maximum of £350 for any one item.

However we are unable to cover jewellery, watches, furs, money, stamps, tickets or documents, anything that’s connected to a trade or business, or anything that is stolen from an awning.

Would my bike on my bike rack be covered?

Our motorhome insurance doesn’t include pedal cycles. It’s a good idea to check your home insurance though, as they may be covered under that policy.

Are my passengers covered for personal injury?

Both you (the policyholder) and your spouse/partner if named on the policy, are covered for personal accident up to £5,000. We will also pay up to £300 of medical expenses for anyone who is injured in an accident while travelling in your motorhome.

After buying a Saga Motorhome Insurance policy...
When do I need a green card?

For most countries we cover, you don’t need a green card anymore .

How early can I get my new renewal documents?

You should automatically receive your documents approximately 21 days before your renewal date. Your new price should be available 25 days before the renewal date for you to make changes to your policy. 

If you are travelling around your renewal date and have no changes to make, we have payment options available which will ensure continuous cover. 

To discuss this or if you have questions about your renewal, please contact our customer service team on 0800 904 7763.

Why haven't my documents arrived?

If you have opted to receive your documents by email or have purchased your policy online, you will not receive a postal copy of your documents. You will be able to retrieve your documents using your MySaga account within 24 hours.

How do I make changes to or retrieve a saved quote?

To retrieve a saved quote, log into your MySaga account. Alternatively you can contact us on 0800 096 4553.

How do I make changes to my policy?

It is most important that you tell us immediately of any changes that occur since the insurance started or since the last renewal date. If you do not it is possible that a claim will not be covered. If you are in any doubt whether a change needs to be advised, please contact our Customer Service team on 0800 904 7763.

Do I have to pay an administration fee when making a change to my policy?

We will not charge an administration fee if you need to make a change to your policy mid-term. However, any changes you make may change the price of your policy so there may be an additional premium to be paid to cover your vehicle for the rest of the policy year. Please give us a call on 0800 904 7763 to discuss your options.

I need a copy of my No Claim Discount (NCD)

We will send proof of your No Claim Discount (NCD) by post once your policy has expired.

This means, if you have cancelled from your renewal date a No Claim Discount (NCD) letter will be issued at the end of your policy to ensure that you benefit from the full year's No Claim Discount (NCD).

If you have cancelled your policy mid term, we will issue proof of No Claim Discount (NCD) from the date your policy expires - you will not have earned the full year's No Claim Discount (NCD) and will receive only No Claim Discount (NCD) earned prior to the partial year of insurance.

Please note: We will usually send your No Claim Discount (NCD) by post which can take between 3-6 working days to arrive. If you have given permission for us to do so, we can validate your No Claim Discount (NCD) years over the telephone with your new insurer. 

Why do I have to pay an arrangement fee?

As Saga is an insurance intermediary, we will place your business with an insurer, who will agree to cover any claims you make under your Saga policy. The £30 cost of this service is charged under a separate contract which we need to disclose to you. This does not inflate the cost of your cover as it is included in your total price.

I have lost my Policy Book – can I view it online?

You can view our latest Policy Books online under the Policy Book section.
