Factors that effect the cost of Minibus Insurance

  • Driver's 25 or under will pay extra as this age group make more claims and the actual claim amount in monetary terms are larger than if over 25. The underwriter adjusts the quotes for under 25's to reflect the increased risk
  • The cost to repair utility vehicle does vary with some being more expensive than others depending on the manufacturer. This along with the purchase cost play a factor in determining your risk level. The more expensive your vehicle category is to replace or fix the higher the resulting premium quote. Spend time reviewing what different manufactures have to offer to find the best minibus for your requirements.
  • The number of seats also plays a factor as such if you are sure you will only ever need a 9 seater then buy a people carrier with only 9 seats.
  • Security: Can you provide secure overnight parking? Have you fitted industry approved alarm systems? If the answer is yes then this will be reflected positively in your quote.
  • The drivers history: A good history of no claims will normally lead to a discounted quote.
  • Excess Amount: Raising the excess amount, which is the amount that you are liable for will also lead to a better quote from the insurer.

Typical Exclusion that may apply are as follows:

  • If the minibus is damaged or stolen by the careless act of the owner leaving keys in ignition or visible to prying eyes
  • Damage caused by a driver that is not listed on the minibus policy documents
  • Using the minibus for purposes other than included in the insurance
  • Losing the keys.
