Compare van insurance for the best policy

When it comes to van insurance policies, not all are created equal and many have exclusions that you need to be aware of. So don’t be caught out by selecting the wrong policy, or if the worst happens find that the contents of your van, or your expensive tools that you rely on for your trade, are not covered.

What insurance coverage do I need?

Black box (Telematics) insurance

If your family think you should have a driver of the year award, then maybe you should consider fitting a black box (telematics). This unassuming little device will assess your driving ability and may result in you receiving a lower insurance premium when renewing your insurance. So if your age and postcode are limiting your choices, but you are an excellent driver, then this might be a good choice for you to obtain a better quote as you compare van insurance policies.

Level of cover

The usual levels of cover are available for van insurance as you perform a van insurance comparison. And you will usually have the option of adding extra benefits to your policy, making your quotation ‘tailor-made’ for you:

Is the highest level of cover for your van and will replace or repair your van in the event of an accident or any form of malicious damage.
