A motor vehicle can be a personally owned car or motorbike which is registered at your home address but cannot carry more than seven passengers and does not exceed 3.5 tonnes.  The vehicle should be owned by you or which you are authorised to drive and is used for:

  1. social, domestic pleasure and commuting to and from your place of business.
  2. personal business use by the policyholder including business use class 3, which means where you and your named drivers are authorised drivers using the vehicle for business, to solicit orders and deliver pre-purchased goods but not as a taxi. This includes sales representatives, consultants and agents.

What is Motor Excess insurance?

Most insurance policies carry either a compulsory or voluntary excess, which is a set amount you must pay if you make a claim on your motor insurance policy.

As an example, if your claim is £1000 and your policy excess is £250, your insurance provider will pay only £750 of the cost, leaving you to make up the balance of £250. This is where excess protect adds real value to you, an excess protection policy will pay you back the excess premium you have had to pay, in the example above £250.

It is common for excesses to affect the premiums charged on the main insurance policy i.e. a higher excess will mean the main insurer will pay out less so in turn you should see a drop in the cost of your insurance premium. Potentially you could use this saving to purchase a motor excess or multi-vehicle excess policy and you may be better off overall. In any circumstance whether you choose to buy motor excess or multi-vehicle excess insurance you will always have to pay the compulsory excess under your main motor policy. Will Multi-Vehicle Excess cover save you money? Most likely it will, and you should have a look at what’s on offer for your circumstances.
