British Hillclimb Championship Partners with Footman James through sponsorship of the BHC Cup

Footman James provide an insurance solution that delivers specialist cover for classic vehicles to owners, collectors, restorers and traders.

For over 35 years Footman James has been at the heart of the classic vehicle movement; specialising in both classic car insurance and classic motorcycle insurance. They understand that classic cars and motorcycles are more than just vehicles; they are a passion and a labour of love. 

Footman James policies have been designed with you in mind, for example their Classic Car and Classic Bike insurance policies come with show and events cover as standard. You can further tailor these policies to suit your needs by choosing from a range of additional options, collectively called FJ+.

A few of the additional options are: 

  • Agreed Value: Rest assured in the knowledge that the true value of your vehicle has been settled and agreed at the beginning of your policy. Prices from £12

  • Nil-Deduction Salvage Retention: If the worst should happen and your vehicle is involved in a total loss claim, this option allows you to retain your vehicle and/or its parts (subject to the salvage category applied) with no additional costs involved to purchase the salvage at the time of a loss (restrictions may apply). Prices from £15

  • FJ Rescue provided by RAC: Breakdown service provided by the RAC. Prices from £40 

  • Track Day: Cover can be provided for your vehicle whilst you are participating in a track day at an approved event (restrictions may apply). Prices from £60

All FJ+ options can be added to your cover at any time (certain restrictions may apply). 

As well as classics, Footman James can also arrange policies for your competition car, kit car and replica car too. They can insure all of these vehicles plus your modern daily driver on one Flex policy (up to 5 vehicles) or Multi-Vehicle policy (over 5 vehicles) - providing you with just one premium, one set of documents and one renewal date for your fleet of vehicles.
