Why take out van insurance with KBC?

If you're looking to insure your light goods vehicle, work out your premium online and sign your contract digitally.

Attached trailers of up to 3 500 kg maximum authorised mass (MAM) are covered by the policy free of charge.

If you have an unattached trailer with a maximum authorised mass exceeding 750 kg, you’re legally required to take out separate liability insurance. You can also get even more extensive cover by taking out our Legal Assistance Insurance and Comprehensive Insurance (if you’ve already done so for your van).

2. Choose between two depreciation formulas under semi- or fully comprehensive insurance

When taking out comprehensive insurance for your van, you can choose between two different depreciation formulas at KBC:

  • 12-month purchase price guarantee – go for extensive protection and get reimbursed the full amount paid for the van up to 12 months after it was purchased (if the van is declared a total loss or gets stolen)
  • Accelerated depreciation at a lower premium

3. No longer any need to name drivers

If different people drive the vans in your company, you no longer need to name these drivers, which simplifies the process of taking out insurance.

4. No-claims bonus

Your good driving habits will earn you 10% off your third-party liability insurance premium if you drive without causing any at-fault accidents for a year or more. After five years, you will be rewarded with a no-claims joker. If you are involved in an accident where you're at fault and you use this joker, you will avoid your premium going up.

If you drive without causing any at-fault accidents for another five years after this, and your company car remains insured the entire time, you will earn another no-claims joker.

What type of insurance can you take out for your van?

1. Compulsory Third-Party Liability Insurance

If you want to drive your van on public roads, you’re required to take out third-party liability insurance as a bare minimum. It covers any loss, damage or injury you cause to others if you are at fault. In such cases, any damage to your van isn’t insured. Drive without causing any at-fault accidents for a year or more to get a discounted premium.

What’s insured?

  • Material loss or damage and bodily injury you cause to others with your van
  • Injuries sustained by pedestrians, cyclists or passengers following an accident involving your vehicle (even if you’re not at fault)

What's not insured?

  • Damage to your own vehicle
  • Bodily injury you sustain as the driver
  • Damage to property you transport professionally for payment (except passengers’ personal clothing or luggage)
