Short cover insurance for a hire van

It should cost you £50 at the most to transfer your existing cover to a replacement vehicle on a temporary basis. Speak to your broker.

    That’s a new one. Can’t the hire company provide cover? “Not for courier use” I suppose.

    How long has your current policy got to run and how long will the van repairs take?

    I’d stick with the coffee and deep breathing then Donna.

    Actually I’d nag the broker a bit more – It’s common enough for insurance companies not to cover hired vehicles under normal circumstances but I’ve never heard of one refuse to cover a temporary replacement vehicle. Maybe the person you were talking to was mistaken.
