What is business car insurance?

There are many reasons for considering cheap business car insurance coverage.

Business-use insurance is included in all our temporary car insurance policies at Dayinsure. There’s a common belief that annual insurance covers you to use your vehicle for business trips but many insurance companies’ policies don’t! Often they only cover commuting to and from your regular place of work.

Why buy temporary business car insurance:

  • 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
  • needing 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: We cannot currently cover rental cars and you can’t use the insurance for a taxi, for deliveries or for door-to-door sales.

Do I need business insurance on top of my annual policy?

There is a common belief that your annual auto insurance will cover you to use your vehicle for business trips, but in actuality, many policies don’t cover this.

Common examples of annual policies that don’t cover business use:

  • those that cover Social Domestic & Pleasure (SD&P) only – this only allows you to drive privately, 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 insurance the additional drivers will likely only have it if requested.

How can Dayinsure business insurance help you?

From hourly or one-day business car insurance to a longer policy, our cover is perfect even when you’re already insured annually on a vehicle and are looking to add cover for business use temporarily.

Because Dayinsure business vehicle insurance provides comprehensive cover, you do not need to have any level of cover on the vehicle already in order to benefit from it. This means, it is also great for when you want to borrow a car from a family member, friend or colleague.

Customers who have an existing SD&P policy may not want to pay for business use on their annual policy for infrequent use, and this is where a temporary policy can help save money. If you only need to use your personal vehicle for business on rare occasion, temporary business insurance is the answer.
