Finding cheap van insurance if you are under 25 can be difficult, because insurers tend to charge you more on average than older drivers.

However, there are ways you can keep the cost down and still get the best policy for you.

Can young drivers get van insurance?

Yes, but not all insurers cover you if you are under a certain age. For example, some van insurance companies only offer policies to drivers over 21 or 25 years old.

This comparison shows the minimum age each insurer can cover. You can use it to find polices that can protect drivers your age.

How to get cheaper cover

Try these tips that could help you pay less for young driver van insurance:

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

  • 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.

The van you drive also affects how much your insurance costs, so to keep your premiums as low as possible think about driving a small van with a less powerful engine.
