If you want to help out during the COVID-19 crisis by running errands in your car, are you covered?
The answer could be no, so if you need temporary insurance then companies like Veygo can help. But Veygo have gone a step further for NHS workers, with a 75% discount on their usual rates for NHS workers, subject to T&Cs being met.
It is worth noting that those owning cars rated in a high insurance group, or drivers with convictions may well be excluded, but others can get a very substantial discount on their premiums, as a thank you to people working on the front line against Coronavirus.
The saving could be very useful for NHS staff who want to help deliver groceries or pharmacy supplies to patients via a council volunteer hub for example. The current plan is to help those who are elderly or vulnerable through the next three months or so with the problems surrounding isolation.
The gesture highlights the insurance issue for many drivers who would like to help more. Those who deliver all kinds of items to friends or people in their locality could find they don’t have Business level car insurance, which means goods in transit and personal liability cover just isn’t there.
For more info on getting up to 30 days temporary cover, see details on the Veygo website.
