At NIG we’re always listening to the needs of our brokers to understand how we can further improve our products.

We’ve used broker feedback to make changes to our Mini Fleet eProduct, thereby ensuring that we remain competitive in the fleet risk market.

Let’s take a look at some of the main changes:

We’ve increased the number of private cars and commercial vehicles you can cover at new business to 15 with flexibility to cover fleets of up to 20 vehicles at mid term or renewal.

We’ve also increased the value limit for cars and vans to £60,000 and £40,000 respectively.

The driving options for Mini Fleet have been expanded to now include Any Driver Over 21 for cases that were previously fleet rated.

We will still quote Any Driver Over 25 for NCD rated risks, where we continue to accept up to 4 named drivers aged 21 – 24 years old.

Our optional Green Flag Breakdown cover (underwritten by U K Insurance Limited) has been refreshed to cover even more incidents, including wrong fuel cover.

Finally there have been a number of quote journey improvements to our award winning extranet TheHub* to reduce referrals and improve quotability.

Here are some of the other benefits of trading Mini Fleet with NIG:

  • Straightforward online quotes, mid term adjustments and renewals
  • Over 2,000 trades accepted online without referral. Click here to see our preferred trades
