Protect the van owners no claims history

A drivers history of no claims plays a very important role in determining the cost of insurance initially and at renewal time. If you are the only driver then you have control over this. However, if you lend your van to a friend for one day and an accident happens that requires an insurance claim to be made, this claim will be reflected on your one time clean history of no claims. One solution and a popular alternative is for the the person that wished to borrow your van take out their own insurance for one or more days. Under this model the owner of the van's claims history will not be negatively impacted during the period when it is on loan to a friend with their own separate insurance policy.
