In addition many UK families now choose a minibus or MPV over traditional motor car so that they commute with their family in comfort.

The cost to insure a minibus will vary and depends on many factors, one key factor is the size or the  number of seats. The general rule is the more seats the costly will be your insurance premium. If you are the stage of renewing your existing policy or taking out first time minibus insurance it is prudent to compare offers that are currently available in the UK marketplace.

How to reduce your minibus insurance premium 

Firstly reduce the insurance company risk of claims being made against them. This can be achieved by driving safely and including a black box to prove this. Secondly if a claim is made against you, consider paying it yourself if the amount is small. Risk can be reduced by the following approaches:

  • Agree with the broker to increase the excess, the excess is the amount that the insured will be liable for in the event of a claim
  • Reduce the risk of theft by providing secure off road parking. Add additional gadgets that will deter theft
  • Ensure any named drivers are over 25 with history of no claims
  • Use black box technology to monitor drivers and direct future training.
  • Reduce the amount of claim by choosing a minus in one of the lower insurance categories, these categories are cheaper to replace or repair.
