Somerset, United Kingdom, January 17, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Concerned insurance broker Insure Your Motor has highlighted fears that volunteer drivers may be risking their car insurance if they don’t inform their insurance company of their activities.
Charities and community organisations often rely on dedicated volunteers to deliver services, especially to elderly and disabled people with no other means of transport. These people make a massive difference to people’s lives, but Insure Your Motor warns them to get their insurance position clarified or risk driving without adequate cover.
“Some insurance companies won’t charge you anything extra for being a volunteer driver,” a spokesman from the broker advised, “but they do need to be told. As a precaution, you should always inform your insurance company to ensure you’re covered in the event of a claim.”
Insure Your Motor, which has 15 years’ experience in the budget car insurance sector, was surprised at the Royal Voluntary Service’s estimate that there are more than 35,000 volunteer drivers in the UK.
“It’s heart-warming to know how community-spirited people are,” the broker said, “but we wouldn’t want them to be out of pocket by not knowing that they need to check in with their insurance provider about their voluntary driving.”
The Association of British Insurers (ABI) has created a list of insurance companies who don’t charge additional premiums for volunteer drivers.
Insure Your Motor is pleased to work with many of the companies on the ABI’s list and can help drivers find a policy that provides the right cover for their needs.
