Morgan sports car owners will receive a new insurance scheme from Peter James Insurance.

The insurance company partnered with Morgan Sports Car Club members and volunteers to design an insurance package that reflects the needs of Morgan enthusiasts, regardless of their vehicle age.

Morgan cars present a unique conundrum for insurance companies as they require all the protection and added benefits of classic car insurance, even though many cars are relatively new.

The new scheme will allow Morgan members to insure their vehicles with a range of specific cover features that ensure the future preservation and enjoyment of both the vintage and modern cars.

Peter James now plans to work closely alongside the Morgan Sports Car Club to generate exclusive membership benefits that will add value to their yearly subscriptions.

These benefits for club members comprise exclusive rates, additional discounts based on length of membership, member-to-member cover, free salvage retention, UK & European breakdown cover, free agreed value, tools and spare parts cover, self-repair option, and legal expenses cover.

Dave Youngs, partnerships director at the insurance company, said: “The team at Peter James Insurance are excited to be working with the Morgan Sports Car Club.

"Their community has vehicles that are part of the fabric of British motoring heritage, so it’s a privilege to work closely with the club and its members to create an insurance product that will help to preserve a healthy future for both the club and Morgan sports cars for generations to come.”

Jann Robinson, vice-chairman of Morgan Sports Car Club, said: “Heritage is an important part of what we do and the team at Peter James Insurance are fellow enthusiasts who understand the vital part insurance must play in preservation.

"As a club that has a calendar packed full of activities such as touring through our travel club and car shows it’s vital that our members have competitive insurance cover that suits their needs and provides the peace of mind that enables them to enjoy their Morgans and the club to the maximum.”
