Handling An RV Insurance Claim

GEICO understands that accidents are probably the last thing on your mind when you get into your recreational vehicle. After all, the open road, great family fun and exciting destinations are the reason you bought your RV in the first place, right? In the event that you do need to file a claim though, having the following information on hand will make the process a lot easier:

  1. Take Pictures. Every once in awhile, stop snapping photos of family, friends and the scenery long enough to take a picture of the RV itself. Follow the old adage that "A picture is worth a thousand words" to help in the event you should ever need to file a claim. Be sure to photograph the outside and inside of the RV and then keep the photos in a secure location.
  2. Log Book. You will naturally want to document your travels, so keeping a log book of mileage, maintenance and your destination will come easily. Not only is it a great way to preserve your memories, it is an invaluable resource should a claim arise.
  3. Keep Receipts. This is particularly important for upgrades, repairs and customized enhancements you add to the RV. At least once per year be sure to document changes to the RV and add the receipts to the photographs and log book.
  4. Know the Numbers. Always keep the number of your GEICO representative available along with a copy of your RV insurance and policy number.
