LV= launches classic car insurance

LV= is launching classic car insurance to cater for vehicles over 20 years old.

The policy offers limited cover for when the vehicle is not in use, and is kept off the road in a locked garage, such as during the winter months. The policy also takes into account the limited mileage that classic car users are likely to travel and this is reflected in the cost of the policy.

Cover for personal accident, personal belongings and medical expenses is included as standard and there is the option to add European cover.

The policy is available to drivers aged over 30 years old and can be purchased over the phone. Customers who purchase a classic car policy as their second car insurance policy through LV= will receive a discount.

Selwyn Fernandes, Managing Director of LV= car insurance said: “We recognise that many classic car owners don’t use their car in the same way as a regular car and so we have a created a policy tailored to their requirements. It differs from a standard car insurance policy and includes elements that classic car owners want such as limited cover in the winter months if the car isn’t being used.”

Notes to editors:

LV= has previously sold Frizzell branded classic car insurance through its partner CSMA. This is the first time LV= branded classic car insurance has been available.
