WHAT IS A CLASSIC CAR?
There’s no hard and fast definition for a classic car, although vehicle age often comes into it. Most classic enthusiasts will agree that a classic car will usually be 20 years old or older, but rarity, special editions, performance cars etc can also fit the ‘modern classic’ criteria for insurance purposes.
Broadly speaking, a classic car is usually a car that isn’t widely available to purchase new, will be cherished and will cover limited miles, whilst not being used as an everyday vehicle.
Classic car insurance is typically available to drivers aged 25 and over.
JUST SOME OF THE CLASSICS WE COVER:
We can cover a wide range of classic cars with our classic vehicle insurance, from British-built to imports, kit cars to vintage motors. We can also provide comprehensive performance car insurance, and cover for modern classics.
We’ve listed below just some of the most common and popular classic car brands that we can cover. If you don’t see your motor below though, don’t panic – this isn’t an exhaustive list!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT CLASSIC CAR INSURANCE
Can I get classic car insurance cover immediately?
How can I get cheap classic car insurance?
How old do I need to be to take out a classic car insurance policy?
The maximum age for a Heritage Classic Car insurance policy for a new policyholder is 79 years; for existing clients there are no upper age limits.
Can I insure my car for third party, fire and theft only?
What is an excess?
Your level of excess is usually agreed when you arrange your policy, though it can be changed if needed. An excess is standard on most policies.
It is sometimes possible to reduce your premium by increasing your excess; this is known as voluntary excess and would be in addition to the compulsory excess already set on the policy.
Does a classic car insurance policy cover me for driving other cars?
Our Multi Car insurance does cover you to drive other cars but only if you are over 25 and your everyday cars are on cover with Heritage Insurance Services. The other car you wish to drive must be insured in its own right, not owned by the policyholder, and for emergency use only.
Is there a list of cars you can or cannot cover?
Do you offer discounts to Classic Car Club members?
