You are responsible for making sure you, the vehicle and your customers are properly insured. But we will help...
Once your first booking is confirmed and a few days away it's time to get the Self Drive Hire sorted. You have two options:
Unlimited hires (plus 4 named drivers). Cost is from £1,150 per year or £650 pro rata if you have already paid for the SDH part
This need to be arranged and bought by you in advance of each hire. You will need to fill out the driver hire form using the details the hirers send over in advance and then send that Alan Boswell with the current mileage and vans value. Alan Boswell will bill you directly. It costs £19 per day and if the customer is going to be late back you need to arrange an extension and pass on the costs.

The annual options is almost always the better price overall but the Daily option can be a great way to get started with minimal financial risk.
In addition to the Self Drive Hire policy you also must have the following cover:
And these are optional add-ons which we highly recommend:
Note: For budgeting purposes you should expect the cost of insurance to be from £1500 per year. If you are in London this will be more like £2,000.
Premiums will be higher than the number quoted above if any of these apply
