Business cover will be included automatically (when your policy is purchased through our website) for you and your spouse or partner if you have had a civil partnership ceremony and live at the same address, unless either of you hold one of the following occupations:
- Motor Trade
- Chauffeur working on a hire and reward basis
- Courier/Driver working on a hire and reward basis and/or delivering goods that they or their employer do not own
In these cases the vehicle may only be used for Social, Domestic and Pleasure (SDP) purposes.
In addition we cannot offer insurance where the vehicle is taken Airside (near to aircraft) or is used for paid driving tuition or where the policy holder or their spouse/partner is a foreign diplomat with immunity.
For all other occupations the vehicle may be used in connection with your business or those of your spouse, partner or civil partner (not business partner).
If you require additional drivers to have business use or are uncertain about the type of use you require, please call our Customer Hotline.
If you are an existing customer, your policy documents will confirm which cover applies to the policy.
If you are in doubt about any of the above please contact the Customer Hotline on 0345 246 8701.
Please note: business cover is required where your occupation requires you or your spouse/partner to travel to more than one permanent place of work. You will need business cover if you or your spouse/partner has more than one occupation.
