About the policy

Whether you use your van for business or pleasure, for client deliveries or family camping trips, we’ll take time to find out what you need, search the market for the best options, and explain what’s included and excluded from the policies we recommend.

With flexible cover from leading insurers such as Ageas, Axa and Aviva, you can be certain your vehicle is in safe hands1.

Our UK based team are specialists in van insurance and will ensure you don’t pay for more protection than you need. Be sure to ask about our low-cost options, such as breakdown cover (from £95), key protection (from £15), and no claims discount protection, keeping you safe from the unexpected.

1We aim to partner with insurers who have at least an A rating. A-rated insurers are independently assessed as financially stable with the means to pay should you have a claim.

What does our van insurance cover?

You can trust us to know the ins-and-outs of van insurance. With different levels of cover designed to suit business or family use, individual makes and models, and varying business types (sole trader or limited company) choosing the right policy can be complex.

Should you have a modified or specialist vehicle, or simply prefer to talk with a product expert about what is and isn’t covered in each of the policies on offer, please call us and we’ll be happy to help.

When choosing a policy, it’s important to know what’s included and excluded. Our summary below provides information on our most popular, fully comprehensive product. No policy protects you against every scenario and it’s best to read the policy documents to understand the conditions and exclusions that apply.
