Van insurance FAQ

Yes, you can add an additional driver to your van insurance.

You’ll need to let your insurance provider know if you want to add another driver, and give them the driver’s details, including any recent claims and any motoring convictions. They may charge you an admin fee.  

Adding a more experienced driver to your policy could get you cheaper van insurance, but adding a less experienced driver might see your premiums go up.

If you only need to add another driver for a short time, you may find that it’s cheaper to get temporary van insurance.

If your business van is registered to or owned by your company, it can be insured under your business’s name.

A no-claims discount, also called a no-claims bonus, is a reduction in the cost of your insurance that providers give you based on the amount of time you’ve been driving without making a claim. It’s usually measured in years, for example a five-year no claims discount.

As well as panel vans, they also offer insurance for pick-up vans and insurance for tippers, as well as insurance for crew cabs, transit vans, livestock vans, curtainside or dropside vans and more.

If you’ve modified your van (for example, the bodywork, engine or exhaust) be sure to mention it, and they’ll help you find a deal that’s right for you.

UK van insurance gives you third-party cover to drive in EU countries, as a minimum.

To be fully covered, you may need to extend your policy to include foreign use cover (for an extra charge), if it’s not included as standard in your policy.

Many commercial van insurance policies also include cover for business travel abroad, or you can add it on at an extra cost. Although you will need valid van insurance, you don’t need a Green Card to drive in the EU, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Serbia and Switzerland, but you may need it for other countries – see the GOV.UK website.

Yes, a black box policy (also known as telematics) is available from some van-insurance providers.

A black box policy involves installing a device on your van or app on your phone, which monitors your driving behaviour.

Black box insurance policies are more popular among young van drivers looking for cheap van insurance, because they’re often charged more for their insurance due to lack of experience on the roads.

What is van insurance

Van insurance could cover your costs if your van is damaged in an accident, stolen, vandalised or catches fire.

You’re legally required to have insurance if you own or drive a van, unless you officially declare your van off the road with a SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification).

You can be fined a minimum of £300 and given six penalty points if you’re caught driving without van insurance. If you end up in court, you face an unlimited fine and could be disqualified from driving.

The type of van insurance you need depends on the level of cover you want.

  • Fully comprehensive
    Comprehensive policies offer the best van insurance protection, and can be the cheapest level of cover for many drivers. It’s worth comparing van insurance quotes and their level of cover to see if it’s the right van insurance option for you.
  • Third party, fire and theft
    Could pay out if your van is stolen or damaged by fire. While it protects you against the cost of damage or injury to third parties, it won’t cover you for the cost of damage to your own van in an accident.
  • Third party only
    Third party cover is the minimum level of cover needed to legally drive on UK roads. It covers you for injury or damage caused to other people and their property. There’s no cover for you or your van.
