From Choirs to Karate Clubs, people use minibuses for a whole variety of different reasons. We will help find you a minibus insurance policy to cover your own specific needs, whether your minibus is for personal use or private use and contract hire, with cover available for all types of passenger and driver.

Level of Cover

As with most vehicle insurance, there are different levels of minibus cover available:

  • Third Party
  • Third Party, Fire & Theft
  • Fully Comprehensive

Some of the main features to consider when applying for minibus insurance are:

Breakdown Cover

There is never a convenient time for your minibus to breakdown! With minibus insurance, you and all your passengers will be taken care of. Our partners have a skilled network of mechanics who provide roadside assistance across the UK. Home start cover is also available, and if you use your minibus abroad make sure your policy includes EU breakdown cover as well.

Some policies will also include a replacement minibus, which is an important feature if your livelihood is dependent on your minibus. If the damage has left the vehicle beyond repair, GAP insurance will pay out the total cost of the vehicle as well as any outstanding finance owed.

Public Liability Cover

This is an invaluable addition, as it will protect you, your business and your employees against any negligence claims from an injured third party.

As the owner of the minibus, there are a couple of steps you should take before setting off on any journey:

  • Check everybody is wearing their seatbelt. This is especially important if your passengers are children
  • Inspect the tyres carefully and check oil levels
  • In the event of an accident, having cameras fitted to the vehicle can work in your favour and speed up any claims processes.

Legal Costs

If the worst happens and you or your business are taken to court, it can be a drawn out and costly procedure, and could have a huge impact on your business and finances. This feature means that all of your legal costs will be covered.

No Claims Bonus

An existing no claims bonus might be transferable to lower the price of your premium.

Single Vehicle or Fleet Insurance

Many minibuses are part of a fleet, and if this is the case for you, check our fleet insurance page to see how you can get a great deal on a multi vehicle policy. Flexible payment is available, and you can add or remove vehicles as required.

  • One of the most important things for minibus owners is to know that all their passengers are safe, and there are some things you can do each and every journey to ensure this. For instance, make sure that everyone is wearing their seatbelt properly before you even start the engine – children in particular can be pretty bad with this one! You should also make sure that you pay extra-special attention on your tyre tread and oil levels in order to avoid breaking down or creating unnecessary wear and tear to the vehicle. The good thing about these habits is that they will also make you a more cautious driver when you are in your private vehicle, and as we offer cheaper minibus insurance policies for drivers with personal no claims bonuses it could save you money too!

  • We can offer a range of minibus insurance policies that cover you whether you use your minibus for business or personal use, as well as if you use the vehicle as part of charity work. Minibuses are rarely cheap, which is why we give our customers the option to cover their vehicle with GAP insurance that will pay out the total cost of the vehicle as well as any finance owed in the event of a total loss. This means that you don’t have to worry about finance bills or being able to afford a new minibus in the future, which can be extremely important if you are in charge of transporting members of your community!

  • As already discussed, we ask for personal information as well as information on the usage of your minibus so that we can find a policy that is suitable for your needs. Some other information we require is the value of your vehicle, how many passengers you intend to carry and how many drivers will be using the vehicle. Finally, we ask when it suits you for us to get in contact, so that arranging your insurance can be done easily and at a time when it is convenient for you!
