• Motor Fleet Insurance
  • Self Drive Hire Insurance

  • By choosing comprehensive Self Drive Hire Insurance from Bluedrop Services we can help to limit your risk by covering your hired vehicles both when they are out on hire and when they are not in use.

    Operating a self drive hire or vehicle rental company inherently comes with a great deal of risk and it’s important to manage that risk appropriately.

  • Self drive hire vehicles are commonly ‘hired’ by the general public for a specified period for which they pay a deposit (often used as security) and an appropriate charge for the duration of the hire.

    In the past, heavy underwriting losses resulted in few insurers being willing to take on self drive hire insurance. Here at Bluedrop we take a different approach; helping to address your risk management and exposure to liability proactively

            Pricing and payments

            Your self drive hire cover can either be separated into a pay as you go payment structure or as an annual policy. The fitting cover choice will depend upon your business and if you operate all year round. We can help advise you on the best route.

            We will work with you to develop a dedicated Risk Management Programme that meets the needs of your self drive hire insurance and form an insurance plan to match your business model. Working together we can review your claims experience and incidents to help control future insurance costs as well as advise how to limit risk in the future.
