We wanted you to be one of the first to know about exciting changes to Footman James’ classic vehicle insurance. Footman James has conducted intensive research with customers and some of its strategic vehicle clubs in helping to design the cover available.
As part of the acquisition of Footman James by Towergate Insurance Group at the start of this year, Footman James has teamed up with insurance group Ageas to bring the products to life.
Ageas has the in-depth knowledge of our market and understands the passion that comes with owning a classic car – as well as the time and investment needed to restore and maintain a vehicle.
Overall Footman James believes that this new partnership with Ageas will ensure that they can now provide a truly flexible tailored classic vehicle insurance product for more vehicles and more drivers, with a choice of cover options that will allow the enthusiast to make the most of their pride and joy at a great price.
Cover is now available for younger drivers from aged 17 which means, more club members can enjoy the benefits of classic vehicle insurance.
What’s more the Footman James insurance cover is fully tailored allowing customers the ability to pick and choose additional cover most suitable to their classic needs. In essence, this means that customers can now take out basic cover without the need to take out extras such as breakdown cover. Policies start from £64 per annum and include Salvage Retention, Participation at Shows and Events and Agreed Value. An example premium for a 1986 2CV6 valued at £4,000 is £84.80
Whilst customers should ensure that they are fully covered and as such Footman James believes breakdown cover particularly for older vehicles is vital, Footman James understands that customers want more choice.
And finally, Footman James is launching a range of valuable extensions to cover aimed at the classic enthusiast, ensuring customers can make the most of their vehicles.
The range of options is collectively names ‘FJ+’ and provides benefits which include;
o Breakdown cover with options to include European cover and Homestart.
o Driving and riding other classics;
o Track day cover;
o Wedding hire cover options;
o Driving and riding to work;
o Legal Protection
o Spare Parts (options up to £10,000 cover)
o Helmet & leathers
o Nil Reduction Salvage Retention
o Lost Keys
o Excess Protect
o European Motoring
o Claims History Service

We believe that this represents great news for our club members and for the club.
