The Benefits of Short Term Car Insurance for Businesses
Jan 23, 2018 13:36
It is important for businesses to constantly look for ways to save money - the less you spend the greater your revenue. There are many different ways that a company could do this and these depend on your expenditures, but one way which the majority could save is by addressing their auto insurance. The majority of businesses will arrange annual insurance for their employees to use company cars, but this is not always the best solution.
Short Term Cover
Unless the employee uses the company car on a daily basis, you might want to consider using short term car insurance. Temp car insurance can be arranged for as little as one day through to one month and this makes it much more affordable and flexible than an annual policy. If your employees are using company vehicles irregularly then this could be a great way to save money whilst also ensuring that they are covered adequately.
In business, short term car insurance is helpful in many situations. Many believe that an annual policy that covers commuting will allow business trips, but this is not the case and you will need separate cover for this. Therefore, if you need to visit a client or attend training, it is wise to use temporary car insurance for the trip.
Fast Cover & NCD
Short term car insurance is also ideal if you have an employee that requires use of your vehicle for one reason or another. Instead of adding them to your annual policy, which can be a lengthy and difficult process, it is much quicker and easier to arrange temporary cover. In most cases, temporary cover can be arranged within 15 minutes provided the acceptance criteria is met. Another benefit of this is that short-term policies are standalone and will not interfere with any No Claims Discount (NCD) if a claim were to be made.
There is also flexibility when it comes to the vehicles to be insured too. This is handy for businesses with large fleets as employees can use different vehicles throughout the week without worrying about being uninsured. The dates are also flexible with the ability to arrange different days or weeks on different cars.
Short term can insurance is a great option for businesses because it can save money on annual insurance policies whilst still providing adequate cover for your employees. It is also incredibly flexible and quick to arrange, which is well-suited to the demanding needs of a modern business.
The hot question just a short decade ago was whether you should lease a car or buy one. With more people having less disposable income and a shrinking monthly budget, many are now pondering whether it is more economical to purchase a new or used vehicle. There are obvious advantages to both, but in the end, though buying a new car may be more expensive initially, it could save you more money in the long-term. Read more
The new 2019 Kia Forte Koup was recently rolled out at the Detroit Auto Show. It looked less like the previous Forte and more like the highly popular Kia Stinger, which is super “hot.” To poke fun at how it might look pretty exotic on the outside but hasn’t changed much under the hood, the video Kia advertisers displayed was of the Forte outracing a Lamborghini. Offering a whole lot more storage space than the Stinger's two-seat sports car, the 2019 Forte has a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine. It also gets marks for great gas mileage: the Forte gets 35 mpg coming standard with a manual six-speed option. Read more
