Insurance for DofE licensed organisations

Insurance for The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award licensed organisations

Unity Insurance Services is delighted to be working with The Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards (DofE) to provide minibus insurance for DofE Leaders, Co-ordinators, Managers and Volunteers.

Are you using a minibus for a DofE expedition, or charitable activities, and need insurance?

If you’re borrowing or hiring a minibus, the owner’s insurance may not cover you, or the hire company’s cover could be expensive.

Our short period minibus insurance can offer a solution, which is ideal for groups hiring or borrowing a minibus either for weekend camps or on longer expeditions.

Short period minibus cover is provided on a fully comprehensive basis for a minimum of 3 days and up to 21 days. Cover can be arranged from £99 in one simple telephone call.

Call us on 0345 040 7731, quoting DofE.

Or do you own a minibus?

If your licensed organisation owns a minibus, we can arrange specialist minibus insurance on an annual basis.

Our annual minibus insurance includes the following benefits:

  • Accidental damage to the vehicle;
  • Windscreen cover (comprehensive only);
  • Can include optional breakdown recovery provided by the AA;
  • Personal Accident cover for the driver and passengers;
  • New Vehicle replacement (if the minibus is less than 12 months old);
