What is a minibus?

Ordinary, to be considered a minibus the vehicle must have somewhere in between 9 seats and 17 seats. However, some minibuses may have fewer seats as they have been adapted for reasons such as wheelchair access.

Riviera Insurance covers and provides insurance for a range of sizes, seats and modified minibuses and passenger vans.

We proudly cover Minibuses owned by churches, charities, community groups and schools, as well as taxi minibuses, and sports teams and associations.

Moreover, our team of trained advisors can also provide cover for care organisations, schools, brownie and scout groups, and family-owned minibuses used for social use only.

If the usage is shared across multiple organisations, it is also possible to note this on your minibus insurance policy.

For example, a church-owned minibus may also be used by a church-run community group, or perhaps a school owned minibus may be shared by the local scout group or charity. 

We can provide cover for a new minibus, or older minibuses or a modified minibus, from a 9 seater minibus, 12 seater minibus, 15 seater minibus right up to a 17 seater minibus for various social and domestic uses, as well as private hire and PSV.

Whatever you are using your minibus for, you will need the best protection available at the best price.

We can arrange Comprehensive and Third Party Fire and Theft cover to protect your vehicle and liabilities to third parties. 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 seater minibuses can be covered as well as executive minibuses.

How much does it cost to insure a minibus?

When getting quotes for your community group minibus, charity minibus, or church minibus insurance, you will find that different minibus insurance companies and insurance brokers can give you very different prices, with various levels of cover.

Therefore, it isn’t straightforward to provide an average price for insuring your minibus, however, it is fair to say that it normally costs more than your average standard car insurance.

When obtaining minibus insurance quotes, you will likely receive varying prices and levels of cover because each minibus insurance company factors so many variables into the cost of your insurance premium.

Each minibus insurance company also uses an entirely different calculation.

Using a specialist UK insurance broker like Riviera Insurance can help you find a cheaper church, community group minibus or charity minibus insurance as they can contact many insurers on your behalf to get the best prices.

As a specialist minibus insurance broker, we understand the calculations used by the insurance companies to create your minibus quotation. We search the market to compare insurance covers to provide you with the best cover at the lowest possible price.

My minibus has more than 17 seats in it, can you still insure me?

If you have a vehicle that has more than 17 seats this would be classed as a coach. You can request a coach quote here.

My minibus has fewer than 9 seats, can you still cover me?

Possibly, if the minibus has fewer than 9 seats because it has been modified or adapted for disabled access we should be able to offer you a quotation.
If the minibus has fewer than 9 seats for any other reason we may still be able to offer you a quotation under either a commercial van policy or a motorhome policy. Please contact us here to request a quote and we will be able to advise you.

Can I purchase my minibus insurance in instalments?

Yes, we can monthly direct debits for your insurance, allowing you to spread the payments.

Can I drive a minibus on a normal licence?

Possibly, you might be able to drive a minibus on a normal licence, but it depends on when you passed your driving test. If you passed your UK drivers test on or before 1 January 1997, you have the correct licenced to drive a minibus up to a maximum of 17 seats.

If you got your drivers licence after this date you will need an extra licence called a PCV licence (passenger carrying vehicle). This allows you to drive minibuses with category D1.
