Insuring a bio-ethanol car in the UK

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

When I first ordered my bio-ethanol car, I started to think hard about the insurance. After all, perhaps I could get a discount for being so environmentally friendly?

Sadly no, my insurer did not offer this, although a competitor did. But at the time, I didn’t want to change my insurer as I was happy with the one I had (and still have).

But perhaps I should have done. If I had been in the UK at the time, I may well have been looking for cheap van insurance, as originally I was looking at small vans for my business, before I settled on the bio-ethanol estate car.

One place to look for UK van insurance is the motordirect van insurance site. Here you can get a quote from up to 30 insurers via a single web site. They can even insure the sign-writing costs!

But they don’t just offer insurance for vans – if I used my bio-ethanol car in the UK then I could get a quote there for that too. In fact, when I took a look at the on-line form to apply for a quotation I saw a field for “special requirements” – I wonder if they could find me an insurer willing to give me a discount for my efforts to save the planet?
