Van insurance FAQs
How do I check who I’m insured with?
If you are struggling to remember who your current van insurance provider is, or even if you are covered, there are a few steps you could take:
- Check the Motor Insurance Database (MID) – this is the quickest and simplest way of finding out if your van is insured, all you need to know if your vehicle registration
- Check your emails or bank statements for purchase confirmation
- Retrieve quotes – if you used a comparison site such as mustard.co.uk, you can retrieve your quotes – although this won’t tell you who you insured with it may jog your memory
Can I drive a van on my car insurance?
If you have fully comprehensive car insurance and are borrowing a van to drive for personal use (such as moving home), your insurance may cover you on a third-party level; however this is no longer included as standard as part of fully comprehensive policies, so you need to check with your provider first. If you are hiring a van, the insurance cover is often included as part of the hire package.
However, if you own a van you do need to get separate insurance for it – your car insurance won’t cover you for that.
How can I reduce the cost of van insurance?
There are many factors that affect the price of your van insurance, such as your No Claims Discount (NCD), the type of policy you need, where you park your van, mileage and modifications, to name a few. Find out more and what you can do to reduce the cost of insurance here. Of course, the best way to find your cheapest quote is to compare with sites such as mustard.co.uk.
Can you use car no claims on van insurance?
Some insurers will allow you to transfer your No Claims Discount earned on a car or bike to a van policy, however this varies by provider so you will have to check directly with them first. Remember that your NCD can only be used on one vehicle at a time.
