The owner is using Goboony Day Insurance
Motorhome owners who hire out through Goboony can choose to use our own insurance that covers peer-to-peer hire. You can see if the owner has Goboony Insurance by looking at the pricing on the right-hand side of the listing page.
It is comprehensive insurance that is paid for by the day and includes breakdown cover, damages, and more. For vehicles with this insurance, it is automatically added to your booking when you make a request. You are then able to add additional drivers should you wish to.
Drivers must be aged between 25 - 74, have held a full UK or EU driving license for a minimum of 3 years, and have no more than 6 points on their license to be eligible. We also recommend that you book in the name of the primary driver.
How is the cost of insurance calculated?
Several factors contribute to the cost of insurance. The estimate seen when making a request is based on the average Goboony user. But in creating your request, the questions answered in the booking process will give a quote of your insurance costs, e.g. whether you'll stay within Europe and the length of time you've had your driving license. You can then see the exact cost of insurance on the booking page, please note it can be higher or lower than the initial estimate.
What do you need to do for the insurance?
The insurance is automatically arranged when you make a booking. When making the booking request, please input the primary driver’s details accurately to ensure a smooth process. This will require simple details like one's age, how many points they have, and how long they’ve been driving with a full license (the date they passed their test).
Please note: If the foreign driving license was converted to a British one, only the date of passed test of the UK driving license is taken into account.
All communication is done via Goboony but the contact details for the insurance and roadside assistance will be provided before the booking starts. You can ask the advertiser and the Goboony Support team any questions you have regarding the insurance.
The owner is not using our insurance
If the owner has an annual policy, such as Alan Boswell, the cost of insurance has already been included in their price. They'll require certain documents to ensure you can be covered by their insurance. You should confirm with the owner whether you can provide these in advance of confirming your booking, after which you can send them over.
Please note that we also provide an excess reduction policy to lower the security deposit to £150. This is a separate policy and is not insurance for the actual hiring and driving of the vehicle.
