Commercial minibus Insurance


Cover available for 6 to 16 seater minibuses

Insurance Options Available

Insurance options include third party only, third party fire and theft, and fully comprehensive. If on the other hand, you are insuring your minibus for commercial use, then this typically will have the added liability and this of course will be more expensive than private passenger vehicle insurance.

If your intent is to carry passengers in your minibus for a commercial gain, then having a commercial minibus insurance policy is required. This type of policy has liability and is needed to cover any passenger’s medical bills and their belongings in the unfortunate event of a collision. Any vehicle that is being used for commercial gain that has between 6 and 12 seats will require a commercial minibus insurance policy.

Why minibuses are popular

Whether you are living in a big city, the quiet suburbs or in the remote countryside, minibuses have proven their practicality due to their capacity to transport people and their luggage from place to place. If you hire out your mini bus, you will want to make sure that you have the best commercial minibus insurance policy in order to keep your operating costs as low as possible.

Ways to reduce the cost of commercial minibus insurance

The average price of minibus insurance depends on a number of factors, some of the factors have been listed below.  

  • Security is top of the list, can you for example park your minibus in a secure location off-road or better still in a garage? If the answer is yes then add this information when completing the online quote form as this will make your online insurance quote cheaper. Adding tracking devices, which now have become less expensive will also help lower costs of your insurance premiums monthly or annual. Make sure any devices added are approved by the UK insurance industry
  • Also consider the size of the minibus, large size normally equates to more expensive and the more seats the more expensive. If you know from experience that you only need a 10 seater minibus then it would be prudent to buy a vehicle that seats 10 only rather than a larger 12 seater. 
  • Some vehicles are more expensive to repair than others, for example body parts may need to be imported. This information is collated and used by the insurance underwriter so if you do have a choice or wish to reduce your premium pick a manufacturer that has lower repair costs and parts costs.
  • Modifications: Avoid modifications if possible. If you do need modifications for example a ramp for wheelchair entry discuss with your broker first to make sure any medications conforms to government safety standards
