The UK Post Office has launched a new van insurance offering for small and family businesses that it claims gives van owners a better deal.

The Post Office’s van insurance entitles drivers to a free physio recovery program if they are injured in an accident, and offers accident assistance, a 24-hour claims helpline and GBP50 cashback with any new policy.

Optional extras include motor legal protection, which includes an emergency replacement van in the event of accident, and RAC breakdown cover.

By including free physio treatment for injured drivers and accident assistance, our new van insurance can help get small business back on the road quickly if the worst happens, said Claire Oldstein, head of communications at Post Office Financial Services. What’s more, we do all the hard work by shopping around to find the best possible price from a panel of leading providers.

The Post Office no doubt hopes to build on the success of its car and travel insurance offerings with this new product. According to the company, Post Office Car Insurance is the fastest growing provider in the UK, with over 300,000 policies in force, and the Post Office is the UK’s largest independent provider of travel insurance, issuing over a million policies last year.
