How to drive a hard bargain with your van insurance

Van insurance Van drivers are having a tough financial time at the moment facing rising fuel prices and rising insurance premiums. According to specialist market research agency Consumer Intelligence van insurance is at a record high and it’s younger drivers who are being hit the hardest.

The report shows the average annual policy now costs an eye-watering £967 and if the trend continues premiums may move into four figures. The under 25s have seen the biggest rise with policies soaring by 4.5% in the past three months and average premiums now costing a staggering £3297 a year. Taking a wider view of the market as a whole premiums have risen 2.7% in the past quarter and 11% in the past year.

With spiralling costs it’s more important than ever to find the best van insurance deal. There are a number of practical ways to cut the cost of cover and we can guarantee substantial savings:
