We were able to provide the Buzz Project with complete cover whilst other insurers were reluctant to do so and the manager Anita Nicholls, was very happy with our efficiency and the way we acted; ‘‘We contacted other insurers but they were unsure on how to classify the vehicle and were therefore reluctant to give us a quote. You were different. You responded positively and we felt confident that you had understood the nature of the work and the de-classification of the vehicle from a bus to an HGV. This service is worth paying for and not seen in many organisations these days.’’

Does my claim history affect my coach insurance premiums?

Posted on October 15th, 2014 by by Marketing County


Yes, your claims history will affect your coach insurance premium. If you have had an accident, fault or non-fault within the last 5 years then the cost of your insurance will unfortunately be more expensive.

This is because even if the accident happened in a private vehicle, you are still considered a slightly higher risk to an insurance provider than those whom have had fewer or no claims. How much higher will depend of whose fault the accident was and how much money was paid out to both parties.

Other factors which influence your insurance premium are the age and mileage of the coach, the area you would be driving in (for example London would be considered a high risk area to drive in) and the average distance the coach would be driving on a daily basis.

As one of the UK’s leading insurance providers, InsureCoach do not believe in turning people away and work hard to provide a competitive quote, no matter what their circumstances. We have an extensive panel of insurers which we compare quotes from to find the most cost effective , saving you both time and money.

It is believed that the incident happened on Tuesday lunchtime. The company involved in the accident later tweeted “112 Delays of up to 15 minutes due to a RTC near to Middleton Junction.”


Fortunately there was no one on the top deck at the time of the accident.


A spokeswoman for Stagecoach added: “At around 1.30pm today (Tuesday 23 September) one of our vehicles was involved in a low-speed collision with a crane which was overhanging the back of a lorry on Grimshaw Lane, Middleton.

“None of the three passengers on board the bus at the time, or the driver, was injured in the incident although there was some minor damage caused to the vehicle. Safety is our absolute priority and we are investigating the circumstances of this incident.”

A major incident has taken place after a school bus and a car were involved in a crash in Drumquin, Co Tyrone.

More than 50 people, mostly children are believed to have been involved in the collision with many of them suffering minor injuries.

Both the bus and the car ended up on their sides in a fied.

Northern Ireland Ambulance Service spokesman John McPoland said: “Fifty-two people were treated at the scene but none of their injuries were serious. The vast majority were checked as a precaution because of their age.

“Six people have slightly more than minor injuries. This would include children who banged their headson the bus windows but no one went through any windows.”

A total of 48 people have been taken to the South West Acute Hospital and Altnagelvin Hospital.

Omagh Road has been closed between Segully Road and Drumrawan Road. The bus was travelling from Castlederg to a secondary school in Omagh. The crash happened in Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness’ Stormont constituency.

He has tweeted: “Relieved to hear there are no serious injuries to pupils & adults in this morning’s bus & car accident on Drumquin-Omagh Rd #bestwishestoall.”

Sinn Fein Councillor, Frankie Donnelly, who represents West Tyrone, said the crash “had the potential to be a major disaster”.

He said: “This is obviously a traumatic incident for everyone involved, including the parents, so I would like to thank the emergency services for their swift response to the accident that ensured everyone was treated quickly and professionally.”
