Renault van insurance

When looking into buying or insuring a Renault van, the first thing you notice might be the huge variety of classifications that their range of 3 basic vans can fall in to.  On Renault’s website, you can see these 3 vans in all their various forms, including panel vans, crew vans, platform cabs and passenger vehicles. This can make predicting insurance costs even more difficult than usual, but luckily, is here to help.

Cars on UK roads are allocated an insurance grouping by the ABI (Association of British Insurers), which insurance companies use (among a lot of other information about the policy holder) to calculate premiums – generally, the higher the insurance group, the higher the premium.

Vans are often recommended an insurance group by the ABI, and insurance providers will use only their own rating systems to calculate risk and premium, so we’ve put together this table showing the current range of Renault vans and some of their characteristics that are likely to impact your insurance premium. If your van has the largest, most powerful engine available in the range, you can expect a higher than average premium.
