LV quoted £1400
Safeguard quoted £399 (with Highway) thank you for the discount after paying 40k + for my beautiful campervan, I needed as much help as possible on the insurance front.

Yikes. I'm paying £450 ish from memory with LV for same spec van in not a great postcode. Let's hope LV haven't changed their view of Cali's when my renewal is due.

Excellent choice; they've always given me the cover I need.

It was that I had a knock for knock, and so they could not give me any NCB, so starting from scratch even though I have been driving since 1973. So just individual circumstances affects it.

Just done the rounds before picking up brand new ocean 4 motion on Friday!! (have a 2011 cali at the moment). Was with Camping and caravanning for the last 3 years having switched from comfort. Camping were good and let you have no claims which was a bonus but quote for a new cali was VERY HIGH. Tried comfort who were better but odd 48 rule about leaving van somewhere else and no mention of no claims. Then tried safeguard - initially a bit higher than comfort but then went below price, get to keep no claims and they offer a fab new for old up to the first 15000miles which means i get what i pay if something happens to my van including all the extras!! They wouldn't take off the breakdown cover which would be good if i wasn't buying a new car but useless as i am.

We’ve been with Safeguard for 3 years, but our renewal was £405 so I asked Admiral about adding the Cali to our existing multicar policy. For the 11 months to renewal it is £250 including full UK and European breakdown recovery.

I read that Admiral do not cover the camping part of the California and treats it like a Caravelle, maybe that has changed ?

Just renewed mine on Friday, will keep it in mind for next year though. Useful as an alternative quote for haggling, thanks.
My cost was £464.

The company I've heard those horror stories about is Adrian Flux.

They are part of the swinton group. Quote was 'double' the Adrian Flux but included breakdown which I don't need because of free bank cover..they then put me onto Scenic , again same group but don't include b'down. Price is similar to Flux but gotta watch European cover.. 90 days per year max and they also want you to guess your european mileage!

Hi all,

Cab anyone advise the needed inputs for a Cali? I select Volkswagen as Base Vehicle Make but don't have Volkswagen as a converter or manufacturer. There are many VW *something* but I don't know which applies for the factory Cali.

Thank you

Tried to get an online quote from Safeguard. You choose vehicle type, then manufacturer. Then you have to choose from a list of converters, the California is not a conversion, no way to choose VW. Entering reg does nothing. So basically impossible to obtain a quote online.

Tried online chat - please give us a call and we can override the issue. How about fixing your website?! Seriously unimpressive.

Out of curiosity I had a trial run, put my reg in and it did nothing with it.
I'm insured with Safeguard!!

Hi williamd, I’m sorry to hear you had a bad experience with our website when you were trying to get a quote.

I’m part of a new initiative we’re putting forward to make sure we’ve got some of our most experienced staff reaching out to help customers online and after seeing your post today, I’d really like to see if I can’t help you get this sorted.

I’ve had a look on our website and the quote system appears to be working when I select the Base vehicle make as ‘Volkswagen’ from the list. The next option does show ‘California’ as an option for me to fill in on the form. I’ll need to check some more details with you over direct messages if you’re still having problems.

That being said, I just want to make sure you’ve seen that there’s a discount scheme with VW California Owners Club we currently provide for quotes when you contact us by phone, so if you’d rather I can arrange for us to give you a call and make sure that’s taken into account.

Please feel free to start a conversation with me by sending a direct message on the forum and I’ll be happy to look at this with you.

Just posting to let everyone know we have a winner from the VW California Club for one of our prize draws!

When you get a quote with us here at Safeguard over the phone and let us know that you were referred by VW California Club, you’ll be entitled to up to 15% discount on all new policies and are entered into our monthly prize draw to have a chance of winning £250 worth of Love to Shop Vouchers.

I'm happy to announce that this month we have a winner in Shane Shelley, whose vouchers we are arranging to be sent as we speak!

As I believe you put it yourself to our representative that reached out to you Shane, “winner winner chicken dinner”!
