Classic Car Insurance
Lancaster Insurance Services, the Classic Car insurance specialists since 1984.
We have developed relationships with some of the largest insurers in the UK which enables us to use our expertise in the classic car insurance market to arrange your insurance which is individually tailored to meet your needs.
Classic car insurance premiums are normally cheaper than those for your modern car because your classic car is generally better maintained and driven fewer miles (resulting in fewer claims). We will search our panel of leading insurers to get you a great deal on your classic cover, simply click the ‘Classic Car Quote’ button to get a classic insurance quote online for your car.
Classic car insurance policies may contain policy benefits not available to modern car insurance such as:
We have a number of specialist insurance schemes available which will allow you to purchase an agreed value in addition to your insurance. This will give you added peace of mind that should you need to make a claim for a total loss, you will be paid the certified value of the vehicle (less the policy excess) as opposed to the current market value.

Club member discounts
Lancaster Insurance is committed to supporting the classic car clubs who help to keep the industry alive. Classic car enthusiasts who are a member of a classic car owners club may enjoy discounts of up to 25% off their classic car insurance premium (the level of discount offered by each insurer differs and is subject to underwriting criteria).
Laid up cover
We understand that sometimes it is necessary to take a vehicle off the road. This might be because restoration work is required or it may be that you simply want to garage the vehicle during the winter months. New rules under the Continuous Insurance Enforcement scheme means that all cars in the UK not declared SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) will need valid insurance. Our Laid Up insurance for classic car policies mean you could pay less for your insurance to reflect the fact you are not driving the car but still want your car insured for accidental damage and fire and theft. Please call us to discuss your laid up policy quotation on 01480 484826. Read more…
Limited mileage insurance
If you are using your classic as a second car it is likely that your annual mileage will be lower than that which you complete in your everyday motor. Our biggest limited mileage insurance discounts may apply to drivers who have a car mileage of 1500 miles per year but our discount structure is staggered and we can insure drivers with unlimited mileage too.
