I purchased some Gap Insurance through Duncan at Riviera for my new BMW M440!I am absolutely delighted with the service I received and also the price I paid, BMW quoted me a figure that was 5 times higher than the amount I paid Riviera for effectively the same product. So for anyone looking for Gap cover all I can say is give Duncan a ring and you won't be disappointed !!

Absolutely FIRST CLASS! I had to arrange new building insurance very quickly, after purchasing the freehold, and Tom was so brilliant. He sourced the market, and came back with a great offer, which I accepted. He was so easy to deal with, so professional, and so helpful. Very impressed with Riviera's service, and would not hesitate to recommend them. I shall definitely be using them for all my future insurance needs.

Riviera brought some calm ground into my stressful property purchase process. Tom set up a fairly priced building insurance ready for exchange of contracts. He was friendly, reassuring and easy to contact. Just what I needed. Thanks.

I have found Riviera Insurance brokers to provide a good quality and professional service. I have used them for some two years now for insurance on my buy to let properties and they have always sought and found the most competitive policies for me to ensure that I don't spend over the odds on the insurance I am forced to purchase. I would highly recommend the service as well as the professional way they deal with me as their customer.

Highly satisfied, very patient with me and made everything clear. They spend ages on the phone with me ensuring I had the right policy and I never felt rushed. When I had to cancel the policy when I left the trade they were equally as friendly and helpful. Top marks!

Frequently asked questions

Bus and coach insurance is a specialised type of commercial vehicle insurance that provides coverage for buses, coaches, and similar public transport vehicles. It protects the owner and operator against financial losses resulting from accidents, damages, liabilities, and other related risks.

Bus and coach insurance is essential because these vehicles carry passengers and are exposed to various risks on the road. It helps protect you from potential financial burdens arising from accidents, injuries, property damage, theft, and other unforeseen events.

Common coverage options include:

Third-Party Liability: Covers damages to others’ property or injuries they sustain in an accident involving your bus or coach.

Comprehensive Coverage: Protects your vehicle against damage from accidents, theft, vandalism, fire, and natural disasters.

Personal Injury Protection (PIP): Covers medical expenses for injuries sustained by passengers or drivers in your vehicle.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: Protects you if the at-fault party does not have adequate insurance coverage.

Medical Payments Coverage: Pays medical expenses for passengers injured in your vehicle, regardless of fault.

Collision Coverage: Covers damages to your vehicle caused by a collision with another vehicle or object.

Property Damage Coverage: Provides compensation for damages your bus or coach causes to others’ property.

Yes, in most regions, bus and coach insurance is legally mandatory for commercial passenger transport vehicles. Operating without adequate insurance can lead to hefty fines, penalties, and even the suspension of your operating license.

Insurance premiums are determined based on various factors, including the number of vehicles insured, the type of coverage selected, the age and condition of the vehicles, the driving history of the operators, the geographical area of operation, and the number of passengers carried.

Yes, many insurance providers offer fleet insurance policies that cover multiple buses and coaches under a single policy. This option often provides cost savings and simplifies administration.

Depending on your specific needs, you might want to consider additional cover such as:

Breakdown cover: Assists in case of mechanical breakdowns.

Legal expenses cover: Helps cover legal costs in case of disputes or lawsuits.

Public liability insurance: Extends cover for third-party injuries that occur outside the vehicle, such as slip and fall accidents near the bus or coach.

Modifying your vehicle might impact your insurance coverage. It’s essential to inform your insurance provider about any significant modifications made to your buses or coaches to ensure proper cover.

In the event of an accident or incident, contact your insurance provider as soon as possible. They will guide you through the claims process, and you will need to provide relevant details and evidence to support your claim.

Our staff are empowered to contact insurance companies and underwriters on your behalf, giving an entirely personal service across the whole UK with no call centres. We take the time to know your insurance needs to offer you the cheapest insurance policy.
