WHAT IS A VINTAGE CAR?

Any vehicle manufactured between 1919 and 1930 may be classified as a vintage car, according to major car clubs. The parameters can vary, but whenever your car was built, we’ll do our best to build you the bespoke policy it needs.

 

Vintage car values can change quickly based on market demand, so it’s important to make sure your agreed value is regularly reviewed. We can offer free agreed valuation, or you can choose to have your car valued independently.

VINTAGE CAR INSURANCE FAQS

What is the difference between vintage and classic cars?

Although there isn’t a set definition for both vintage and classic cars, a classic car is typically a car that is 15-20 years of age or older, and desirable as a collectible. Vintage cars are vehicles that were manufactured between 1919 and 1930, although the timeframes can vary. The common denominator is that they both have timeless designs and are owned as cherished vehicles. 

Can I get vintage car insurance immediately?

Yes. Once payment has been made for your vintage auto insurance, cover will be in place immediately.

Does a vintage car insurance policy cover me for driving other cars?

No. Traditionally, you would already have this with your standard car insurance. We recommend checking this in your Certificate of Motor Insurance. Our Multi Car insurance can cover you to drive other vehicles, if you are over 25 and your everyday cars are on cover with Heritage Insurance. The other car must be insured, not owned by the policyholder, and for emergency use only.

My vintage car isn’t finished yet; can I get insurance while I’m restoring it?

Yes, providing the car is garaged we can provide laid up insurance.
