Are there different types of Van Insurance?

Yes. Van Insurance is categorised into three main policy types: Third party only, Third party, fire & theft and Fully Comprehensive. Any of these insurance types will allow you to drive your van legally on UK roads, however the level of cover you will receive varies significantly between each:

Fully Comprehensive

This is the maximum level of cover offered by leading van insurance companies. Comprehensive van insurance covers you for all of the above plus the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle in the event of an accident.

Third Party Only

This is the minimum amount of cover you are required to have under UK laws. Third party van insurance in theory covers everyone and anyone except you, the driver. In the event you cause an accident or damage to other people, their vehicles or their property, your policy will cover them. In the event of an accident whereby you are at fault, third party only insurance won’t cover the cost of repairs to your own Van, damage to personal property or tools or any personal medical expenses. You’re also not covered in the event your van is stolen. While Third Party Only is not the obvious best choice, it’s usually a great choice for younger drivers and those searching for low cost Van Insurance.

Third Party, Fire & Theft:

This level of insurance provides the same as third party only with the added additional benefit of cover against fire and theft.


How can I get Cheaper Van Insurance?

You can lower the cost of your Van insurance by taking several factors into consideration. Drivers with a good no claims bonus usually get reduced premiums whilst changing the voluntary excess or improving security features can have a big impact on your van insurance quote.

No-Claims Discount:

Insurance providers will offer a discount on your annual premium for each year you have been driving without making a claim. The likelihood of receiving a lower van insurance quote is greatly enhanced by the more years you can accumulate.

Voluntary Excess:

Your excess is the amount you must pay in advance to the insurance company when making a claim. In most cases, the higher your excess is, the lower your premium will become. Insurance providers usually add a compulsory excess too, so make sure you check to see if its affordable should you have to make a claim.

Security Features:

Adding additional security such as an approved alarm, immobiliser or tracking device could make your Van Insurance Cheaper. Adding dead bolts and upgrading locks could also help in reducing your premiums.

Do I need Commercial or Private Van Insurance?



If you’re only looking to van for non-business related trips, you can opt for private Van insurance which covers you for social, domestic and pleasure usage.


If you use your vehicle for work in any capacity, you’ll need business Van Insurance, which includes travelling to and from more than one fixed location. Commercial Van Insurance is usually split into three main categories which are Carriage of Own Goods (i.e your own tools & equipment), Courier (delivering goods to multiple locations) and Haulage (i.e delivering goods from a supplier to one location).
