Classic Car Insurance specialists for 30 years

At Footman James we specialise in classic car insurance and vintage car insurance. We understand that classic cars are more than just vehicles; they are a passion and a labour of love. This comprehensive cover is designed to recognise the true value of your classic car. We have been arranging classic car insurance for 30 years, delivering specialist classic car insurance for owners, collectors and traders. Footman James’ classic car insurance includes the benefits that are important to owners including, amongst others, breakdown assistance and agreed value.

As lovers of classic cars, we enjoy links with many enthusiasts and their clubs, such as the Morris Minor Owners Club and the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club, directly engaging with them by sponsoring classic car shows and offering specialist rates for club members. To see the full list of clubs and associations that we work with, please visit our Classic Enthusiast Clubs section.

With a proven passion for classic cars, you can be confident that by arranging your insurance through Footman James, your classic car, whether it is a Volkswagen Beetle, MG MGB or a Morris Minor, will be covered.

Footman James has also recently launched the Young Enthusiast Policy. This means that young drivers who had previously struggled to obtain insurance for their classic car are now able to do so, subject to a range of qualifying criteria. To get a quote call us on 0843 357 1974.
