You may think that driving you scouts around in your own car and/or with other parents and volunteers to be a great idea. "It will save us money that we can use for the actual trip!" is a quote that we often hear. However, there are quite a few issues that arise when driving personal vehicle's for scout travel. Below you will find listed a number of questions that we have been asked and in order for you to make a more informed decision we have outlined them below.
If you have two uses for your car, business use and private use you need to declare the mileage for the scout trip as part of your own usage of the car. It is not classified as business use. Even if you are being paid to drive your car, you still cannot declare it as business usage. In fact, most insurance companies require you to declare if you are going to be driving for volunteer purposes.
In general, even if the actual attachment belongs to the scout group, if it is attached to your car, it is your responsibility. Moreover, don't think that it will be doubly insured by both your insurance and the scouts one. This rarely, if never happens with insurers.
If you have an accident that needs to be claimed off the insurance, you will lose it. There is provision in the scouting world (Scout Insurance Services) that can come to your assistance in various claims and it is worthwhile checking with them before your trip.

Have you ever thought about taking your cubs to a theme or adventure park? They are great fun, especially for the Cubs year group. Parking with numerous cars in the often waterlogged carpark isn't clever. I'm sure you've seen pictures of cars getting stuck after one of the torrential downpours not uncommon to our shores. Have you ever walked through the car park and been jealous of those big coaches parked right by the entrance? Well now you no longer have to be. With Drivya you can order a coach for your cub trip with the minimum of fuss and get a complete, almost chauffeur type service for your group.

We can help advise on where you can go safely in order to get these badges as well as providing transportation for your entire group. Get in touch today and we are sure you will not be disappointed.
