Private van insurance (also known as Personal van insurance) allows you to use your van for social, domestic and pleasure purposes only, e.g. for school pick-ups, hobbies such as fishing trips or the weekly shop.
Our private van insurance offers two levels of cover, comprehensive and third-party fire and theft, details of both covers can be seen below.
A broad van insurance for personal use policy that covers you for a range of eventualities. Our comprehensive van insurance includes:
This covers you if someone makes a claim against you, and if your van is stolen or damaged by fire.
For an additional premium, you can also add the following to your comprehensive private van insurance for personal use policy or your third party, fire and theft policy.
Your No Claim Discount won't be affected by one claim made during the current period of cover, or by two claims arising in the three preceding years of insurance.
If you have at least 4 years' No Claim Discount, you and all named drivers are at least 25, and all have no fault claims within the past three years, then you'll be eligible to buy No Claim Discount Protection.
