Van insurance groups typically run from 1-50, although the exact number will vary between insurers. The higher the number, the more expensive the insurance for that group will be.

Other factors that help decide the cost of van insurance include how you intend to use the van, the age and experience of the drivers and where the van will be kept at night. Vans with extra security features could help keep the cost of insurance down.
