Hire Car Instead of MMA For Course!!

#1
I cannot believe that it is cheaper for a hire car to be used instead of MMA to get someone to a course if they are willing to take their car! Even if the hire car does cost £20-30 a day, the tank needs to be left full so the petrol is the same. The reason I'd rather take my car is so I'm not stuck in ANOTHER barracks for ANOTHER weekend while on course when I've family 2 hours away by car, but two taxis and a three hour train journey at £35 plus taxis to get there! It's kinda nice to get out in the evenings too. The need for non-availability of transport should just be shoved somewhere the sun doesn't shine so that people on course in the UK have freedom to use their own vehicles on course without having a financial penalty for doing so.

Easy, go on a course further than 2 hours away.......or be in the RRS and be posted to Kent while shedloads of Rifleman from 'dahn Sarf' are based in Jockland.... seemples

How does that work? I'm off to Surrey from Scotland and can't get MMA (P.S. I have class 1 business insurance.)
Jeez!..I was taken the piss/being 'sar car stic' over your whinning mucka.

'When I were a lad' we'd be sent from fecking Germany to do SCBC/PSBC/etc...try getting home for the weekend from that.

Mate, just suck it up via getting pi55ed/local tarts/etcs...feck me, how long is the course for FFS!

Poor little munchkin! I suppose it could be that your unit MT or AGC Det hate you and decided to bugger you about.

In my unit the cut off time for booking a hire car is a bout 48 hours. So, if you will be driving to a course on a Sunday, put in your transport request on the Thursday afternoon. MT duty bollock will say 'sorry mate, no chance of a hire car for Sunday, here's a non availability chit, crack on'.

Job jobbed.

You won't get none availability for that. You'll make your own way there or be AGAI'd. ****ing barrack room lawyer.

Just jib the train. I was well good at that. I still am in fact. Funny thing is that last year, I worked as a train ticket inspector for 6 months!

I take it you have business class insurance. No? No MMA then.
Jesus Christ it's not like it costs much more to get your insurance company to add "occasional business use" onto your policy.

Instead of acting like a bellthronk why don't you help folk sometimes.

Reported your post for acting like a bellend in a serious forum.

No need for bussiness insurance if you have specified that you use your motor to get to and from your place of work.
Are you sure? That usually means a 'regular place' not 'where ever you happen to be this week'.
I
think towergate and naafi throw this cover in anyway for forces policies.

Love the SV as a way to get to a course, it will get the mileage up on a underused veh though, so top marks.

I'm afraid I have to comment as a former car insurance salesperson and claims handler (a job I hated BTW)

If you have a NORMAL i.e. not NAAFI or Towergate-Wilson car insurance policy you need to inform them that you work in more than one place.

This is actually quite important also for reservists, as if you do not inform them that you also drive to your 'reserve training establishment' (yeah gods how tri-service of me), for a second job then you may not be insured to do so. if in doubt check your policy documents carefully.

i was told by my insurance that if i went on a course it was place of employment,however you had to go only there,you could not stop off on the way to collect kit,post,etc and the same on return.
would the mod accept that no.
