The first thing to consider for any 17 year old is what kind of van you are going to have. Buying your self a brand new top of the range model may result in very high premiums, while buying an older van that is poor condition may equally drive up the cost of premiums if a claim is more likely. One way of lowering the premiums paid for your van insurance is to volunteer to pay more in excess. Although this will mean that you will have to pay more if you are actually involved in an accident, you could see your regular premiums drop significantly.

 

It is always advisable to avoid the practice of ‘fronting.’ This is when you place your van under somebody else’s name when insuring it. This has two main disadvantages:

  • If you are found out your policy will become void instantly
  • It does not allow you to build up your own no claims discount

 

With all this in mind, it is vital that you compare van insurance quotes from as many providers as possible, although you should be prepared to pay higher prices as a 17 year old for van insurance, at least initially.
