4x4 insurance

Whether yours is a Chelsea tractor a hard working Land Rover or you've got your hands on a sports car like the Porsche Carrera 911 4s, you'll want to make sure you're insured.

If you have a pickup and are looking for insurance, you'll need to use our van insurance process. This is because generally 4x4s are classified as cars and pickup trucks are not due to their longer wheel base and the fact they often exceed 3.5 tonnes.

To go ahead and get a quote for your off-roader, click on the 'Get a quote' button at the top of the page to start the quote process. You can make the process quicker for yourself by having some information ready:

  • Details about you - Your licence, any driving convictions you hold, your address etc.
  • The car - Either the registration number or make and model, how much it's worth etc.
  • Additional drivers - Details of any additional drivers you want added to the policy
  • Policy details - The type of policy you're looking for, when you want it to start etc.

If you need more advice before getting a quote, take a look at our car insurance guides section where there's lots of useful information including understanding the different policy types and how to make a claim.

What can I do with a 4x4?

  • They're great for towing - whether that's a caravan for your summer holidays a boat to hit the water in or a trailer to take rubbish to the tip
  • With the UK experiencing an extreme range of weather such as flooding and snowfall, a 4x4 can take it all in its stride and keep you mobile
  • If you fancy exploring the great outdoors, they're great for covering rough, wet and soft terrain whilst you stay comfy in the drivers seat

What should I know about 4x4's?

  • With more mechanical parts involved in driving an off-road car, the reliability and potential break down risk is worse than standard cars
  • Because they are often larger and heavier, their fuel efficiency can suffer

If you're in the market for a 4x4 take a look at reviews from our motoring journalist Tim Barnes-Clay:
