Self-Drive Hire Insurance

Self-Drive Hire Insurance

Towergate has considerable experience in arranging insurance solutions to meet the needs of the self-drive hire business sector. That’s given us a firm understanding of the risks you face and the cover you need to protect your business.

With over 40 years’ road transport experience, Towergate Insurance Brokers – Motor Division knows what it takes to deliver a comprehensive, affordable and sustainable insurance program that meets the specific needs of its self-drive hire clients.  Our relationships with the UK’s leading self-drive-hire business fleet insurers puts us in a strong position to achieve just that.

We can arrange annual cover on a rental revenue, day rate, or rate per vehicle basis – whichever works best for you.

Appoint us and we will assign a dedicated claims and Risk Management team to your account. These experts then work with you to not only help with tricky claims, but to also help reduce both the frequency and severity of accidents – enabling you to better control insurance costs and increase your operational efficiency.

One-to-one, Best Practice rental desk training for your hire operators is all part of the service. While webcams for your rental desk and solutions to assist your Self-Drive Hire customers in reporting claims promptly are all available to you at no extra cost.

We may also be able to negotiate a premium discount if you’re open to fitting dashboard camera and / or telematics systems to your self-drive hire motor fleet vehicles.

‘Cash flow is king’ for many businesses; insuring with Towergate gives you the option (subject to status) to pay by monthly instalments.

Whatever the size of your business, whatever your business activities, we’ll do all we can to arrange the right self-drive-hire business fleet insurance to protect you and your vehicles – at the right price. 

And if you need help with the complete range of business insurance covers such as public and employer’s liability, property and business interruption and plant inspection – as well as a range of other essential covers – we would be very pleased to help with that too.
