What Is Self Drive Hire Insurance?
If you operate a vehicle hire company, self-drive hire insurance is essential. When renting out vehicles you need to make sure you have insurance in place that covers vehicles that are both waiting to be or are currently on hire. Standard motor insurance policies will not cover you correctly, so it is important to get a self-drive hire insurance policy to protect yourself sufficiently.
How Self Drive Hire Insurance Works
The key consideration of self-drive hire insurance is that it provides standard motor insurance cover, which is a legal requirement and covers you if you are hiring your vehicles out to be driven by someone other than the owner. Important requirements for our policies include:
- Minimum requirement of 3 year’s fleet specific experience
- Minimum vehicle requirement of 3, with no maximum cap
