What is business car insurance?

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.

What does our business car insurance cover?

  • Borrowing a car for work on a day-by-day basis
  • Borrowing a colleague’s car or using a company car or commercial vehicle to visit clients or other branches
  • Travelling to conferences, meetings and training sessions away from your usual place of work
  • Sharing cars and vans between employees so you can split the driving for business trips
  • Using a bigger vehicle to transport extra equipment or large items
  • Borrowing a vehicle when your business vehicle is in the garage for repairs

Please note: This will not cover delivery use, door-to-door sales or taxi usage. It also cannot be used on hired vehicles.

Do you need car business insurance on top of your annual policy?

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:

  • Those that cover you just for social, domestic and pleasure (SD&P) use – SD&P only allows you to drive for your own personal use
  • Those that have commuting cover already – this often only provides cover to and from a regular place of work
  • Those with added named drivers – in these cases, even if the primary driver has business use insurance, the additional drivers will likely only have business cover if it’s been requested

How can Dayinsure business insurance help you?

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 UK policy makes a great addition to your regular annual insurance, allowing you to get that all-important protection at low cost.

Dayinsure car business 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.
