What is motorhome hire insurance?

Motorhome hire insurance gives you the ability to legally drive someone else’s vehicle. This short-term insurance works by only covering you for the period of time that you’re renting, making it an affordable way of exploring the world safely.

In the current climate, renting a motorhome is becoming a more popular option for travellers compared to travelling by plane or train. Unfortunately, not all motorhome owners will organise cover for you before you take their vehicle out on an adventure. With Sterling cover, the motorhome’s owner doesn’t need special insurance, nor do they have to add you to their policy.

Our policy has its own separate NCB, meaning claims won’t affect your car’s no claims bonus.

Why do I need motorhome rental insurance?

Not only is motorhome rental insurance a legal requirement, but it’s also very important to make sure that you have the cover that you need. Chances are that when you’re renting a motorhome, you’re driving on unfamiliar roads around the UK in a vehicle that’s a lot bigger than your typical car and what you may be used to driving.

Getting the right cover will help insure you in the event the motorhome gets damaged.
