How many vehicles are in a fleet?
There isn’t really a set number of vehicles that constitute a fleet. Some insurance companies say more than three, whereas others say you will need to have 10 or more to qualify for fleet cover.
When you fill out our form for fleet insurance, you will be asked for the number of cars or vans in your fleet. This means you will be matched with the right brokers to provide you with the best possible quote.
What is an open driver policy?
Open driver policies, also known as any driver, is insurance that covers your fleet vehicles to be driven by different drivers. This can be particularly useful for large fleets whereby a worker may need to take any available vehicle rather than a specific one. However, it can be pricey. To keep any driver policy costs down, make sure your drivers are over the age of 25 with clean licenses.
If you think this might not be the option for you – for example, you have a taxi fleet which has cars driven by the same drivers day in day out – you should go for a named driver policy. This insures a person for a specific vehicle in your fleet. It can be a cheaper option if you know your car will be driven by one person for the duration of their employment with you.
