Motor Fleet Insurance
Motor fleet insurance is available for companies who run two vehicles or more which can be a mix of cars, vans or lorries. It enables you to cover all the company vehicles under one motor fleet policy with one renewal date.
The flexibility to change vehicles, add drivers and insure temporary vehicles along with the often beneficial premium savings are the main reason people choose motor fleet insurance.
Insurers will usually allow Company Director owned and registered vehicles to be added to the Company’s Motor Fleet Insurance policy provided this has been disclosed to the insurer.
What covers are provided
The majority of motor fleet policies offer cover on a Comprehensive basis which would include damage to your own vehicle, fire, theft, glass and third party claims made against you. Cover is normally for vehicles used in the UK but can be extended overseas as required.
When your own vehicle is being repaired by an insurer’s network of approved repairers, you will be provided with a courtesy car and repairs will be guaranteed.
Who is able to drive
This is entirely up to you. The majority of fleet policies are based on any driver 25 years of age and above although you can include younger drivers if you prefer. Please note young and/or inexperienced drivers will often be charged a higher premium and an increased policy excess.
