Advantages of any driver van insurance

As the name implies, in this type of cover, the van can be legally driven by any qualified driver that is given permission. Any diver does not always equate to any age. Young drivers under 25 are in a higher risk category than drivers over 25, and most brokers will exclude these from any driver policies to keep premiums reasonable. 

If you have young drivers, speak with your broker as often they can be covered under a separate named policy, so it does not impact the cost of an any driver policy. Similarly, drivers that are just qualified with limited driving experience may also be excluded as again new drivers are in a higher risk of accident category.

For a business that relies on of a fleet as part of their business, example a delivery service, an any driver policy will save time on arranging cover for new drivers. This along  with easy driver vehicle allocation can outweigh the extra cost of this policy type.

Does any driver van insurance come with stipulations?

How to reduce the costs of any driver van insurance

Like any vehicle insurance policy, the age of the driver has a large influence on the premium price that will be quoted. Young drivers under 25 are classed as a high risk. By excluding young drivers, the premium for any driver van insurance UK will be reduced. Other ways to get the best deal on any driver van insurance include;

  • Keeping your van in a secure overnight parking building or lot. Premiums are based o a large extent on the risk of your van being stolen or damaged. If you can provide safe overnight parking, the broker will see this in a positive light, and you should be rewarded with a slightly cheaper premium. Adding additional industry approve tracking and immobilisers should help further reduce the premium quoted. 
  • Excess : Can you burden a higher excess in return for a cheaper premium? Increasing the excess equates to being more responsible and taking some risk from the broker. Work with your broker to see if you can both come to some arrangement for a higher excess for a lower premium.
  • Exclude policy items that are not required, for example, travel to Europe or replacement vehicle if not needed.
  • Low Insurance Van Groups : If not too late, take into account the van insurance groups when making your van purchase. Reviewing the best small courier van can be helpful.
  • Avoid modifications to the van. The only modification that will lower the cost of the premium will be when a business is advertised on the side of it. All other modifications will increase the premium costs. If your van is modified, then you will need modified van insurance.
  • Multi Van Insurance : For a business with more than one van, the use of multi van fleet insurance should be considered. A fleet policy for multiple vans should be more cost effective. This type of policy provides a discount as new vehicles are added to the policy. Apart from making admin easier, it should provide overall savings. However, this is not always the case, and it is wise to compare the costs against the traditional one van one policy route.  
  • Black Box: Adding a Black Box can help reduce future premiums, if the data collected shows that you fall in to a lower risk category. Adding a Black Box can also drive up your premium if the data shows that you drive badly or that you drive mostly at night as examples. You will need to weigh up the pros and cons of insurance with or without a black box.
