Why food delivery drivers need insurance

Are you surprised by the price of food delivery insurance?

Have you discovered that extra insurance is hard to get as well as expensive for drivers using a car, van, motorbike, scooter, etc.? Don't worry, we're here to help.

Wouldn't it be better to purchase this insurance in another way?

A lot of people believe that buying insurance via price comparison sites is the cheapest and easiest way, eliminating middlemen. The reality may be quite different.

Brokers are the only businesses that deal with insurers directly. A majority of companies advertising insurance, including those on comparison sites, are brokers. You call the broker for quotes and they forward your request to the insurer.

Compare sites present you with these quotes automatically, but invariably charge brokers for doing so, which not only gives them a profit but also covers their massive overheads, including the costs of extensive advertising.

As a result, when you purchase a policy via an online comparison site, you are indirectly paying for the profits and overheads of the site, as well as the broker's fees.

It is possible to sell food delivery driver insurance in a different way. Many web sites selling this insurance are operated by brokers who work to find the best deals from the companies with which they work. Unfortunately, most of them work with only one insurer; or at best, a small number.

If you want to compare quotes, why not choose multiple brokers?

You can benefit from both the broker system, and technology. Fill out just a brief form about what you are looking for, and brokers from the panel will contact you with quotes.

Hence, you could benefit from expert advice not only in finding you the best food delivery policies, but also in reducing the cost, or finding better benefits, for any other type of insurance you may require. So why delay? Get your quotes now.

Is it because most insurers are careful about providing food delivery insurance?

A driver needs to deliver the food as quickly as possible so that it is still hot when it reaches the customer. Also, the more food a driver delivers, the more money they earn, especially tips.

There is a temptation to speed up sometimes in bad weather, or at night, or in unfamiliar areas. It is not surprising that the risk of accidents is higher amongst those who deliver food.

Do you offer monthly insurance payments?


ome insurers accept monthly payments, but not all, so you may be unable to compare as many options, which will result in much higher premiums.

If you choose to pay monthly, you almost always have to pay interest and/or administrative charges, so purchasing a yearly policy tends to be the cheapest option.

Can I buy different types of fast food delivery insurance?

The options are varied, depending on your budget. You might want to consider:

There is a third-party policy that only covers injury to third parties and/or property damage to others if you are responsible for an accident. It does not cover your own vehicle. Despite this, it is not always the cheapest option!

Third party fire and theft. This covers third party risks and should reimburse you in case of theft or fire.

You should get comprehensive car insurance if your car is damaged in an accident, and you might also get a courtesy car and breakdown cover, or maybe even legal representation if an accident is contested.

Food delivery insurance - how much does it cost?

In the same way as any other type of vehicle insurance, your rates can be determined based on several different factors, such as your driving record, your products, the area in which you work, etc. Get quotes now!
