Peter James Insurance announces exclusive partnership with the Mk1 Golf Owners Club

14 August 2023

We are delighted to announce an exclusive partnership with the MK1 Golf Owners Club to provide a new insurance scheme tailored to enthusiasts of these increasingly popular classic cars.

Continuing Peter James Insurance’s development of new, club-focused insurance initiatives, this exclusive partnership will deliver an insurance offering specifically designed with the needs of MK1 Golf Owners Club members in mind, with input from the club’s management throughout. Club members will now be able to benefit from:

  • Insurance solutions for younger individuals and family members
  • Member-to-member cover – club members are insured to drive each other’s VWs with fully comprehensive cover at no additional charge
  • Self-repair – the option to receive an equivalent cash settlement
  • Free valuation process that ensures an accurate and impartial value for any MK 1 Golf
  • Free salvage retention.

Crucially these benefits not only encourage the continued enjoyment of the vehicles through enabling club members to drive each other’s Mk1s, but ensure that the passion is handed down to new generations of enthusiasts through the provision of insurance solutions for younger members of the club.

The new insurance scheme is launched just as the growing community of Mk 1 VW Golf enthusiasts gear up for a year of celebration to commemorate 50 years of the VW Golf in 2024. The scheme will enable fans of these cars to insure their cherished vehicle with a host of features to support the future preservation and enjoyment of a model that is enjoying an explosion in popularity.

Peter James Insurance have an unrivalled reputation for the provision of specialist classic and vintage vehicle insurance having been at the heart of the historic vehicle community for decades. By working with clubs to offer exclusive membership benefits that add value to their annual subscriptions, Peter James Insurance is helping to secure the future of classic cars by supporting the clubs that form the backbone of the classic car community.

Dave Youngs, Partnerships Director at Peter James Insurance said,
“The team at Peter James Insurance are excited to be working with the MK 1 Golf Owners Club. Despite being a single marque club, their community has such a vibrant and diverse range of vehicles and is truly driven by passion. From modified classics to cars in regular use, from Cabriolets to GTis we have worked closely with the club and its members to create an insurance product that best suits their needs and protects these popular cars on our roads for generations to come.”

Simon Berry, Mk 1 Golf Owners Club Chairman said,
“It’s been great working with Peter James Insurance over the last couple of years, so it makes perfect sense to work with them to develop our own bespoke insurance solution for the benefit of our members!”
