Most of the time, everything goes just how you planned. When it doesn't, our insurance will back you up. These are just a few of the great features on our minibus policy.
Designed for one or more minibuses with between 9 and 17 seats, our service can cover all under one policy, with one set of paperwork. If you run a fleet and want to add or remove vehicles, simply give us a call and we can make the amendment, the same day. If you have larger vehicles we can cover these on our coach insurance policy too.
In the event of a negligence claim from an injured third party, we have the right cover to protect against the unavoidable. We help you be proactive and ensure accurate measures are in place to be able to protect the company, employees and your vehicle if a claim is made. If the unfortunate occurs, we offer optional £1,000,000 - £10,000,000 public liability cover.
If your minibus breaks down – don’t worry! We’ll make sure you and your passengers are safe with our breakdown cover. We have a nationwide network of approved mechanics, so whether you’re transporting children on a school trip or pensioners to the seaside, you’ll know you are in safe hands and they’ll get you back on the road quickly.
We’ve teamed up with the RAC to now be able to offer RAC Legal Expenses, RAC Legal Care. If the unfortunate does happen and you are involved in an accident and you are not at fault, the policy will cover the cost of a solicitor to represent you and help to recover your uninsured loses.
We help manage risk to keep you and your passenger’s safe and that’s a job which never stops. So, we offer a 24 hour claims service. Our claims process is robust and we ensure you understand how to report a claim and keep you informed every step of the way.
