Your VW Golf is more than just a car to us. As hard core VW enthusiasts we understand the time, effort and money invested in older watercooled Volkswagens and have made sure that our Heritage Parts Centre VW Golf insurance scheme offers everything that you could want from a Volkswagen Golf insurance policy.
Whether your Golf is a daily driver or a fully restored show car, we can offer VW Golf insurance to suit. From the earliest Mk1 Golf insurance, Golf Mk2 insurance and Golf Cabriolet insurance not to mention policies to cover the later Golfs, Caddy, Scirocco, Corrado and Polo of all generations too.
Your car doesn’t even have to be original or standard. The Heritage Parts Centre VW Golf GTI Insurance scheme is appreciative and accepting that enthusiasts like to personalise their vehicles, and many modifications carry no additional premium at all.
As enthusiasts ourselves we know that rarer water cooled models like the Golf Rallye, G60, Golf Country and Polo G40 are often imported into the UK from Europe and LHD VW Golf Insurance is also something we specialise in. Drive a USA or Japanese import? That’s not an issue either.
* Policy features will vary between schemes - if you particularly need a particular benefit, please mention this when speaking with the insurance adviser
