The Specialist Vehicle Insurance Specialists

Specialist Vehicle Insurance

Because it's special, it deserves specialist vehicle insurance.

Because yours is not the every day, but the extraordinary, you’re looking out for specialist vehicle insurance

After all, it would be a dull old automotive world if we all pursued the functional at the expense of the beautiful, the quirky, the mighty and the rare.

At Principal we celebrate difference. We support enthusiasts’ passion by using our specially selected panel of insurers* to offer and compare our best specialist vehicle insurance quotes.

We can arrange cover for an impressively broad range of vehicles, including:

The policies we arrange recognise that yours is not just any old motor, but a part of your life, a vehicle in which you will have invested not simply money but time, attention and love.

Agreed value & salvage retention

That’s why our panel of insurers can offer you free agreed value to ensure your pride and joy is properly protected.

We can also arrange salvage retention rights  so that should the worst happen, and your vehicle be written off, you can recover those cherished parts.**

Discounts

Other benefits available, include:

  • Limited mileage discounts***
  • Up to 10% off your premium if you are a member of a recognised owners club.**

Multi-vehicle insurance

If you’re a collector or simply complement your passion with your everyday A to B car or motorcycle, motorhome or van, then we can also arrange multi-vehicle insurance.***


* Please ask if you would like details of the panel of insurers we use to compare specialist vehicle insurance quotes.   ** The availability and size of discounts varies between insurers and policies and underwriting conditions will apply. Please ask for details.  **** The cost per vehicle can be lower per vehicle when taking out multi-vehicle insurance than when insuring vehicles separately.

Very strait forward and no hidden costs at the end of the purchase. If they don’t increase their price for next year, I’ll use them again.

Very professional approach by Joe who took my call. I was concerned over an email I’d had inviting me to click on a link. He understood and we sorted everything out. Good people for customer service which is sadly lacking these days by other companies. Will use Principal again. Thanks
