What is a classic car?

Classic car is a broad term often used to describe any older car, as there is no definition that is set in stone. Unlike the definitions used with Historic Vehicle Tax (pre 1973) we felt it shouldn’t be a fixed value. We created our categories with expansion in mind. Modern and future classic will always apply to the upper age brackets of vehicles, but as time passes, these brackets move. Creating an ever expanding classic category.

Featured Benefits

UK & EU Breakdown Cover

All our classic car insurance policies include our highest level of breakdown cover which provides roadside assistance in the UK, EU and any breakdown occurring at the home address.

Agreed Value Cover

One of the biggest differences between a standard private car policy and a classic car insurance policy is the ability to have an agreed value. An agreed value takes the guesswork away from the payout of a total loss claim. First you need a valuation, you can either get one from our in-house service or from an independent specialist or club. All you have to do is send it in with photos of your vehicle and assuming all is above board we’ll agree the value and send you an agreed value certificate.
