What you’ll need to get a van insurance quote

Before you start your insurance quote, you’ll need to have a few details to hand. You’ll need to tell us your personal details and driving history, how long you’ve had your license and what kind it is, and what type of van you have.

  • Van registration number and details. We'll need to know the age and value of the van, the number of seats, the date when you bought it and any security features it may have. You’ll also need your estimated annual mileage, and the address where the van will be kept overnight.
  • Driver details. We’ll need each driver’s name, occupation and driving history, including any claims and motoring offences they’ve had.
  • Types of cover. You'll need to know what type of cover you want for your van, whether that’s fully comprehensive, third party or third party, fire and theft.
  • No claims discount. You might be able to transfer over any no claims discount you have with your current van insurer. Before you get a quote, find out how many years’ discount you have and think about whether you’d like to protect the discount if you make a claim.

 

How much does van insurance cost?

There are several things to consider, like the trade or sector you work in, what your van is used for and where it’s kept overnight. Your age and driving experience are big factors in determining the cost of your van insurance. For example, younger drivers are statistically more likely to have an accident and make a claim, so, insurance premiums tend to be higher for younger people. A higher insurance premium also applies to inexperienced drivers, whatever their age.

What you use the van for also affects the cost of van insurance. If your van is only for pleasure or domestic use and has a small annual mileage, your premium is likely to be different to someone who drives it regularly for business or trade.
