Insurance

All motorhomes are comprehensively insured for the named drivers during the hire period only. Additional drivers can be added at an extra charge, prices available on request.

Every accident or damage to the vehicle must be reported to D.G. Motorhomes immediately by telephone and an accident form must be completed at the end of the hire period. It is your duty to exchange insurance details if an accident involves another vehicle.  Preferably to take photographs of the incident, damage to either vehicle or third parties involved. Should there be a witness present then details should be sought. If persons are injured then the police must be informed. The insurance excess is £1000.00 for drivers that hold a UK license, price can vary for non UK driving license holders.

Any damage to tyres, windscreen and any theft of personal property is not covered by our insurance and any such damage shall be at your expense.
