Vauxhall dealers can now offer van insurance to customers underwritten by Ageas

Ageas and Vauxhall have extended their existing partnership to include the provision of van insurance.

Vauxhall can now offer insurance to customers buying vans via its dealer network in addition to the private motor insurance it already offers.

Vauxhall will be offering a free five-day ‘Free to Go’ policy for vans purchased directly from Vauxhall dealers, as well as the option to purchase a full annual insurance policy.

Sales, administration and underwriting of the policies will be performed by Ageas Insurance Limited, part of Ageas UK.

Ageas UK chief executive Andy Watson said: “We are delighted to have expanded our successful partnership with Vauxhall to include van insurance. We pride ourselves on partnering with some of the UK’s strongest brands and this latest development demonstrates our desire to widen our product proposition and strengthen our relationship with such a major partner.”

Vauxhall marketing programmes manager Mark Pinkney said: “This is the first time Vauxhall has been able to offer van insurance to our customers and will support our Retailer Network to offer an all-encompassing service to customers buying new or used vans.

“We are delighted that Ageas has enabled us to widen our insurance proposition, and offer even more of our customers peace of mind that their vehicle can be covered with Vauxhall approved repairs.”
