What is Business Car Insurance?

Business car insurance is a flexible policy designed to protect drivers who use their car for more than the daily commute. If you make the following types of trips, then you need to consider getting a business car insurance policy:
  • Drive to meet clients
  • Visit multiple work sites – be they your company’s or other firms
  • Transport other members of staff to work locations
  • Drive to the bank
  • Drive to training sessions
  • Drive to company conferences, seminars, or away days

All these common types of journeys are counted as business trips.

Please note, that business car insurance is not the same as commercial car or Commercial Vehicle insurance. Commercial Vehicle insurance is designed for drivers who carry passengers or deliver goods for money, so couriers, taxi drivers, driving instructors, and van drivers.

What Types Of Business Car Insurance Are There?

There are three classes of business car insurance:

  • Class 1 – Covers you for driving between multiple places of work or occasional travel to meet clients. Class 1 insurance typically includes people such as care workers who go to visit patients or social workers visiting clients. It’s not suitable if you do deliveries, though
  • Class 2 – offers the same protection as class 1 but includes a named driver, often a colleague. Most insurers will specify that the policyholder and named driver must work for the same company. Deliveries and door-to-door selling aren’t covered
  • Class 3 – is a good option for sales reps and others who do a lot of business mileage. It will cover the carriage of samples but not of goods or merchandise. Again, deliveries won’t be covered.All three options give the driver the social, domestic, and pleasure cover they would get with a standard car insurance policy.

How Can I Cut My Businsess Car Insurance costs?

Everyone wants to find ways to save on their insurance without compromising on the quality of protection. You can save on your policy by:

  • Increasing your excess
  • Improving your car’s security by keeping it in a locked garage, installing an immobiliser, or a telematics device
  • If your business has two or more cars, it might be eligible for a Fleet Insurance policy which can work out cheaper per vehicle
  • Pay annually
  • Prove you’re a safe driver with a black box insurance policy
  • Shop around – or better still, let your local Coversure office do the shopping around for you

How Much Does Business Car Insurance Cost?

How much your policy will cost depends on several factors, some of which we’ve outlined below:

  • The type of car you’re driving
  • Your mileage – both business and personal, social, and domestic
  • Driver(s) age(s)
  • The level of no claims discount you have
  • What you do for a living and how you’ll be using your car at work
  • Where you live and where you travel for work
  • The age and driving history of any other named drivers on your policy

If you have two or more company vehicles that need insuring, you’d be wise to get a fleet insurance quote. A fleet policy will give you flexibility, and you can insure several vehicles on one policy
