If you are searching for an appropriate policy, it may be prudent to compare van insurance quotes from various different providers in order to find the best possible cover for your money.


Think about the level of cover you will need. Third party is legally the most basic cover you can purchase and will protect you from damage caused by another person to your van. Fully comprehensive cover can protect you from fire damage, theft, accidental or malicious damage as well as damage caused by another driver.


It may also be important to organise UK cover prior to your trip abroad. With this in mind, you should think about buying breakdown cover, if not already included in your policy. This should give you the peace of mind you need when on the road in a foreign country.


If you are planning on taking your van abroad you may want to think about:

  • Whether your vehicle complies with the country’s regulations
  • Check that you have a valid UK or EU driving license
  • You should check the road laws for the place you are visiting, if you do not know them already
  • Consider cover that may be provided by your employer if it is a work related matter. If you work for a company that requires you to drive a van, they may be able to provide you with adequate van insurance for abroad travel


Regardless of the type of cover you end up purchasing, it is always important to shop around as much as possible for the most competitive van insurance quotes available.
