Insurance for temporary drivers

If you find yourself without a vehicle after an accident, a Credit Hire company can step in to arrange for replacement vehicle hire. They do this on ‘credit’ that they then hope to claim back from the party believed to be responsible for the accident. If you run a credit hire business, then chances are that you have a fleet of vehicles allocated to providing drivers with a hire vehicle. Of course, these vehicles will need to be insured for the hire period and this is where credit insurance comes into play.
