Van insurance for under 21's

Does anybody know any company's who do van insurance for under 21's

Sick of having a car and realised a van would suit my needs a lot better.
Hightop transit connect I'm thinking
Failing that the old freelander commercial

But no insurance company wants to know.

I'm 20 by the way thanks for any help well appreciated

Getting van insurance for private use can be 'interesting' for anyone. You might be better off getting a LWB Landy or a Delica.

Highway insurance used to do it, so did Swinton but that's a few years ago.

You might have more luck if it's a camper van. Insurers don't seem to be so scared of them!

You might need it to say it's a camper on the logbook though, or you're into modified vehicles which is an even bigger headache.
Forget minibuses as well unless they are below 16 seats.I went to buy one a few years ago to convert to a camper and the insurance was so high I couldn't drive it away. The insurance company then told me if I converted it to a camper or even removed 2 seats it'd be a modified vehicle and they wouldn't insure it.

I agree that a 110 is probably your best bet. I was driving around in a ex-militaty 3.5 V8 110 at that age, as it was about the cheapest thing I could find to insure. Lots of fun to drive and with the LPG conversion was quite reasonable on fuel.
