Self-Drive Car Hire Insurance
Does your business lease or hire out cars or commercial vehicles to other businesses or the public? Our exclusive car hire insurance can help to protect your business against the risks which could threaten your profitability.
We're an associate member of BVRLA, and are on their website as a broker to call. Our exclusive car hire insurance can help cover your costs when your self-drive hire vehicles experience damage, theft, accidents, vandalism or misuse. You may want to include off-hire insurance, too.
We can arrange car hire insurance for a range of private and commercial vehicles – from cars, vans and minibuses to short, medium and long wheelbase transits and tail-lift panel trucks up to 7.5 tonnes.
Your car hire insurance
Your car hire insurance could include comprehensive, third-party, or third party, fire and theft cover. It could include cover for drivers up to 75; up to 8 self-clearance points; cover for travel within the UK and Europe, free Green Cards and/or European breakdown and recovery cover; cover at all times, or only when hired out; and contingency cover when vehicles are hired out on a customer’s own insurance.
Add-on cover is also available, including motor legal expenses, cyber liability insurance, directors’ and officers’ cover, and motor trade insurance.
Helping you lower your risks
We can also advise on additional ways to lower your risk profile, improve your protection and hopefully cut the cost of your insurance – especially if your business is seen as higher risk due to vehicle use or location. We might suggest enhancements to site security and storage; advise on managing customer ages and profiles; discuss vehicle trackers, remote telemetry and on-board cameras for accident recording; and suggest a flexible approach to excess levels and the overall sums insured.
