INSURANCE NEWS, update 10th October  2016

All members that have not renewed their insurance by the first of May 2016 are now cancelled and if they want to renew they have to re apply with full documentation. Allianz  were very fair and gave 2 months to get their stuff in.  People who apply now will be going on the new 365 days deal. Allianz are conservative,(that’s good) and while some people think it’s little bit extra over the two rivals, things they should seriously consider, Can you tow a trailer without extra costs, can you do temp or permanent substitution without being charged ? Can you substitute a car for the camper while its being serviced? can you use your camper to go to and from work?  Can your camper be your main vehicle ? Can you get repatriation insurance cover while touring the continent ? of course you can, Allianz give the best cover, not the cheapest but the best overall package and as we have been told  many timesrecently Allianz through Richardsons Insurances are beating the opposition hands down on house,Car and all general insurances. We kn0w as our                     members give us positive feed back.  Update July 25th,  as of 8th of June, Paula Roche   who has been with Richardson’s for yonks has just left due to family commitments and has been replaced by Sinead .    We have  had numerous compliments as to how helpful Paula was and can assure members and friends that Sinead is also very helpful   just as we too found Paula to be very good  if you have any queries regarding  your personal insurances, car, House  etc contact Sinead 0                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     1 2999554  , In the meanwhile  there’s none better than Betty Fry , who looks after our motorcaravan scheme, the voice you all hear when you call  01 2999501 .

don’t forget to scroll down

Our Club Insurance scheme . as of 01/10/2015  we are now going 12 months cover, so if you take out the club policy on the 10th January 2016 you have 12 months cover until the 9th January 2017

 Richardson’s 01 2999501  are getting the best motor and home quotes

 

 All Insurance prices are going up.apart from the fact that the financial Regulator told all insurers to increase their prices  between 20% and 50%  as there was not sufficient funds to meet claims.(somebody is going to pay for the floods) does this have a familiar ring to it ?

You heard it here first

 Looks like 123.ie and Chill are pricing themselves out of the market 

Everybody that can hear and see knows that the insurance companies are  no longer”flying kites” seeking to putting up their prices, where they can. they have done so. They have been instructed by the financial regulator to increase their prices. A Club member asked for our assistance on getting his small 1100CC car insured,  never had an accident or claim in his life and lives in the midlands his renewal came in at €640 having paid €470 the previous year we did a lot of on-line searches for him, Chill came in at €733, Blue refused to quote, 123.ie came in at an incredible €1150. No Nonsense (FBD) was a joke,  eventually we contacted Richardsons our appointed brokers (01 2999554), explained the situation and in 5 minutes  they got our member even in light of price increases a very acceptable quote of €490, The CelticTiger is back Another 3 members had  similar experiences in October and November .

      

 30th July 2015 We heard that Buckley Caravans in Mallow are no longer trading    

As of 22/07/2015  We have amended our Height rule on the  FAQ page.  

We put up breaking or important news on the front page, It’s astounding how many people don’t read any further than the front page.  People seeking information should search the relevant pages

 Some people ask about joining on line, this we do not do as we are selective,however  it’s quite easy, just go to our about us page and see what you have to do , We have no problem sending out by post  (snail Mail) an information pack.

Decent people are never exact!

  As of 5th Sept 2014 We  appointed a new SQI to assess motorcaravans on our behalf in the south west Michael Moynihan of Kerry Campers  087 1350500

 Our History

The Motor Caravan Club of Ireland is 32 years in existence, it was formed in 1983 to act as a forum for those like minded people who are interested in the pursuit of the Motorized caravan. The  Club has been highly successful in promoting the use of the motor-caravans here in Ireland and has encouraged friendship amongst thousands of people of similar persuasion. It has also supported the tourist industry, and encouraged motor-caravan owners and hirers from other countries to visit Ireland.

Membership of the club is reserved for people who love the free way of life that the motor-caravan can give and are of good character. We have but one rule GOOD MANNERS. Where Possible the Club like people who are   seeking to join to be recommended by existing members but if you do not know any member just inform us and we can see what can be done.

Our website is a starting point for everybody interested in this fascinating hobby. We would like to invite members and visitors to share hints, tips and ideas with us in our free forum. Lots of people are innovative and this can be quite helpful, so log in and partake in the fun. The pages of this web site are here to provide help and assistance and of course a modicum of fun for all who visit our site.
