How much does over 50s van insurance cost?

The main factors that determine the cost of your van insurance include:

  • Your driving record: How long you have been driving for, the number of accidents you have had and claims you have made

  • Your van: How much your van is worth, how powerful it is and its size

  • Your details: Your age, where you live and your job are all taken into account

Therefore, if you are over 50 with a clean driving licence and years of experience, you will probably pay less compared to a younger, inexperienced driver.

How to pay even less

If you want to cut the cost of your van insurance further, you could:

  • Pay for your insurance upfront, rather than monthly, because most insurers charge you interest for paying in instalments

  • Add extra security, because some insurers charge less if you have things like immobilisers and alarms installed in your van

  • Choose a higher excess, because most insurers reduce the cost if you are willing to pay more towards the cost of a claim

  • Shop around and compare as many quotes as possible to find the right policy at the cheapest price
