Do I need to have one?

We strongly recommend to all our owners to have a GPS tracker in their van. Not only does it provide you with an extra layer of safety, but it can also give you vital evidence if there is a dispute with a hirer. Our insurer has also notified us that in the future, the cost of insurance is likely to be higher for vans that do not have a GPS unit installed due to the increased risk.
