Business car insurance in the UK is similar to regular car insurance – however, it also covers you for several other work-related purposes. With a regular car insurance policy, you’re only covered to drive to and from a single place of work, meaning that you’re not protected if you need to travel between different locations, visit a client, make a sales call or travel with a colleague. So, if you need to do any of those things, you need to add business cover to your policy.
The good news is that business-use insurance is included in our temporary car insurance policy at Dayinsure, which makes it perfect if you’re looking for any temporary business travel support.
Please note: This will not cover delivery use, door-to-door sales or taxi usage. It also cannot be used on hired vehicles.
Your regular car insurance policy will cover you to commute to and from a single place of work. Generally, it won’t cover you for anything else related to work travel beyond that. Normally, if you’re planning to use your car for multi-site visits, visiting clients, making sales calls or travelling with a colleague, you’ll need to add business cover to your policy.
Some common examples of annual policies that don’t cover business use:
From hourly or one-day business car insurance to a longer policy, our temporary cover is perfect if you’re looking for short-term business cover. Our business car insurance makes a great addition to your regular annual insurance, allowing you to get that all-important protection at low cost.
Dayinsure business car insurance provides comprehensive cover, which means you don’t already need to have any cover on your vehicle to benefit from it. It’s also perfect for when you want to borrow a car from a family member, friend or colleague.
If you have an existing SD&P policy, you may not want to pay for business use on your annual policy when you only plan to use your personal car on business occasionally. A temporary policy may cost less than adding business cover to your annual package so, if you only need to use vehicle for business on rare occasions, temporary business insurance is the answer.
With our temporary van insurance, you’ll be covered for business use as standard, meaning that you’ll be able to use the van for your day-to-day business needs. Perfect for when you need some extra space for a project, or need to borrow a friend or family member’s van for work while yours is in the garage.
Please note: This will not cover delivery use, door-to-door sales or taxi use. It also cannot be used on hired vehicles.
If you don’t already have SD&P cover on the vehicle or you’re not sure what to do, you can purchase our Dayinsure short-term policy. It gives you comprehensive coverage for both SD&P and business use.
