Insurance on Classic Cars

Florida Oldscool Campers, LLC has and maintains the state required liability insurance.. It's required the renter has current full coverage insurance (comp and collision) on their personal automobile. 


If you do not have full coverage insurance, you will either need to take out a separate binder or add full coverage to your policy for the time period of the VW Bus Rental.


FOC sleeper van rentals / Volkswagen Campervans will not be released until your insurance is verified. If you are traveling from outside the US or Canada please contact us for information. 


The renter will be responsible for all damages to the Volkswagen Camper-van or sleeper van rental. Including Proof of insurance as soon as we receive your Reservation Form. FOC will verify your insurance to a make sure they cover you 7 days prior to your departure date.  


Our insurance company offers extra coverage that may be purchased called SLI (Supplemental Liability Insurance). Please see the description below. SLI covers damage to other vehicles and third parties (not your VW Bus Rental). 


If your insurance covers you in a rental car, then it should cover you in Volkswagen Camper-van, Sleeper van rental, and classic car rental. When speaking to your insurance accompany make sure you refer to the bus as a mini van. IF you say 'Bus" they will think you are traveling in a much larger vehicle and your insurance company will not cover. Also, the vehicle is not listed as a camper or RV. The title actually reads 'Station Wagon' because mini vans were not created yet. 


Credit card insurance will not cover the buses due to age. They all have a 25 year clause not including classic cars. 


Florida Oldscool Campers dose not sell insurance. 


Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI)


SLI insurance is excess liability insurance that protects you and any authorized driver, as defined in the rental agreement, against third party automobile claims for bodily injury and property damage caused during permitted use of the rental vehicle. The rental agreement may provide some minimum protection for third party liability. Our insurance is limited due to our rentals are classic cars.
