Understanding Van Insurance

Just like a private car insurance policy, our panel of insurers offer fully comprehensive, third party, and third party fire and theft cover. A fully comprehensive van insurance policy will protect you against third party claims and accidental damage caused to your commercial vehicle. Third party only provides cover for any damage caused by your commercial vehicle to another person or their property. Third party fire and theft adds cover for fire damage and theft to your vehicle.

We also work with insurers who offer third party trailer cover, so you can add a trailer to your commercial vehicle with peace of mind, knowing you are protected.

Additional Benefits

As well as standard features, we offer a variety of additional benefits that can be added to our policies, these include:

  • Motor rescue
  • Step back bonus protection
  • Full bonus protection
  • Windscreen cover
  • Open drive
  • Replacement locks

If you’ve been driving claims free for years on your own car insurance policy, you may be able to mirror the bonus over to your van insurance policy. But don’t worry, if you need to make a claim on your van insurance policy, your no claims discount for your car insurance policy will not be affected.

Van Insurance Tips

If you’re looking for cheap van insurance cover, we understand how tricky the process can be. We aim to help you find a policy which features all the benefits you require, including cover for your goods & equipment, open driving and stepback or full protection of your No Claims Bonus.

  1. Do you need Open Drive? - Our van insurance policies allow for an additional 4 drivers to be added, so you can only pay for the drivers you want on your policy instead of opting for an open drive policy. It could save you a packet.
  2. Increase the excess - If you've been claim free, why not think about changing the excess on your policy. The excess is the amount you are prepared to pay on any claim on your policy. Typically, if you increase your excess it will reduce the premium.
  3. No extras, no extra costs - Although we do recommend protecting your no claims bonus, it is an additional cost. We recommend that you only choose to have a protected no claims bonus if you really need it, as it may increase your premium.
  4. Go Green - Thanks to the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, by switching to an electric van you could qualify for a grant.
