Posted on June 3rd, 2013 by by Marketing County

As a bus or coach driver you will know that it is essential to get the right insurance in order to keep your vehicle and your business on the road.

Unfortunately, finding a policy that meets all your requirements doesn’t always come cheap. 🙁 Thats why, busandcoachinsurance.net would like to make you aware of a few simple steps you can take towards reducing your premium;

1)    Choose a reputable broker: busandcoachinsurance.net  specialise in bus and coach insurance and have solid working relationships with a range of  leading underwriters who offer us preferential rates.

It is a common misconception that you will always save money if you go direct to the provider. When you go through a broker, the underwriter can be sure the correct policy has been selected and you are more likely to be awarded with a lower premium as your considered less of a risk!

 2)   Increase your voluntary excess: It’s a simple equation. The higher the excess the lower the premium. However you should never set this to a figure your budget couldn’t realistically cope with.

 3)   What is your bus or coach actually worth? Many people believe that if they state that there vehicle is worth more than what it actually is then this will pay off when they come to make a claim. Unfortunately, this is not the case and you will only be paid out the market value despite a higher premium.
