How to shop for your next RV insurance policy on Hardbacon

Comparing prices from several insurers before selecting an RV insurance policy can usually save you hundreds of dollars a year. Follow these 4 steps to do so.

Tell us where you're located

The first step is to enter your province of residence in the box on the left, and click on the “Compare prices” button. Your province will help us redirect you to the appropriate partner.

Tell us more about you

The second step is to complete our partner’s form, which will begin by asking for your contact details as well as other personal information that is required to obtain RV insurance quotes.

Tell us more about the type of driver you are

The third step is to answer questions about your record as a driver, and about other drivers who will be using the RV you wish to insure. Here you’ll indicate if you’re traveling outside the country with your RV, if your driver’s license has ever been suspended, etc.

Tell us more about the RV you wish to insure

The fourth and final step before you can submit your application is to answer questions about the recreational vehicle (RV) you want to insure. Here you’ll indicate the vehicle’s make, model, year and mileage.

A few tips to save on your next RV insurance policy

Combine your insurance products

Most insurers will offer you considerable discounts on your insurance premiums if you insure several recreational vehicles, your car and/or your home all with them. Take inventory of your insurance needs and try to combine them to save.

Analyze your needs

Do you drive your RV on Canadian or US roads during the summer period, or does it remain parked in a campground? This question will help you identify your needs and thus determine whether you should consider additional coverage or stick to the basics.

Compare prices

Your insurance premium can vary significantly from one insurer to another, especially due to factors such as the crime rate in your neighbourhood. Each insurer has its own risk tolerance, which is why it can be beneficial for you to shop around for your insurance and compare prices.

Focus on maintenance

A well-maintained RV will definitely save you some claims. Be sure to follow your maintenance guide to the letter to travel safely all summer long. Other breakdowns can occur when your RV is stored during the winter, such as its water system freezing if not properly winterized. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

There are several factors to consider when shopping for your RV insurance.

Replacement cost protection is an optional protection. It allows you to obtain a refund that will not take into account the loss in value of your RV over the years. If an accident happens, you could get a refund equal to or proportional to the initial value of your RV.

I was able to compare mortgages on HardBacon when going through the purchasing process of our new house - very helpful. Went back to compare bank accounts - I've had the same bank account for over 20 years. I've now just signed up for a new account with a lucrative offer. Highly recommend taking the time to search all products to compare on the HardBacon site!
