  • Couriers
  • Haulers
  • Removals

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it a legal requirement to have hire and reward insurance?

Yes, it’s a legal requirement for drivers carrying people or property for a fee to have hire and reward, or courier insurance. You can buy a normal car or van insurance policy, then ‘top up’ with hire and reward cover, or you can buy a fully comprehensive hire and reward insurance policy.

What type of insurance do I need to deliver food?

To deliver food via motorised vehicle in the UK, you must have hire and reward insurance. If you’re delivering food by bicycle, you don’t legally need any form of insurance, but it’s always a good idea!

Will my employer buy my hire and reward insurance for me?

This comes down entirely to each employer and your contract with them. If you’re freelance or a sole trader, it’s likely you’ll need to sort out your own insurance, however, it’s worth asking your employer before you buy a policy.

How much does cover cost?

Policy prices are calculated using a multitude of factors including age, location, work-type, vehicle type and more. Therefore, the best way to get an accurate understanding of cost is to submit the quote form and get a no-obligation quote.

How can I make a claim?

Please contact your insurance provider if you need to make a claim or have any questions about your policy.

Can cover be paid for on a monthly basis?

Yes. Although monthly payments end up being more costly compared to annual payments which do not include interest charges.

Is there a minimum age?

Whilst many insurance providers have age limits of 21 or even 25, there are others that can provide cover for people under 21.
