Classic Car Insurance specialists for over 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 over 30 years, delivering specialist classic car insurance for owners, collectors and traders.

As lovers of classic cars, we enjoy links with many enthusiasts and their clubs, including the Mercedes-Benz Club. One way in which we engage with classic vehicle clubs and their members is by offering specialist club rates, only available on the club's specialist scheme.

The Mercedes-Benz Club Scheme

  • Mercedes-Benz cars which are 10 years or older may be covered
  • Annual mileage limits of up to 10,000 miles available for Mercedes Benz cars aged over 20 years’ old
  • Classic policies for young enthusiasts (aged 25+) doing low mileage

We also understand that every classic car owner and their needs are different, but we all share the same passion and enthusiasm for our classic car. With this in mind, we have developed a product which allows you to build your policy with over 20 different cover options; including agreed value, drive to work and wedding hire. You can view the full list of our cover options here.

With a proven passion for classic cars, you can be confident that by arranging your insurance through Footman James, your classic Mercedes-Benz will be covered.
