Groupama has launched Optima Van, a new commercial vehicle policy.

It will complement the insurer's Tradesman Select policy which provides legal liability and tax investigation protection to small businesses and the self-employed.

Premiums will be calculated based on the lifestyle rating system that Groupama uses for its motor and household range.

Completely system-driven, rates for Optima Van are guaranteed on quotation systems including Policymaster, Misys, Cheshire Data, CSC ElectRa and Quotel.
