This covers ‘third party fire and theft’ plus any damage you accidentally do to your own car.
The cost of premiums for first-time drivers is dependent on the age of the driver. If you’re over 25 then you’ll typically pay a lot less than younger drivers. That’s not just great news, it’s recognition that life experience makes for safer drivers.
Keeping your car in a garage overnight can bring your premium down. Installing an alarm, tracking device, or immobiliser could too.
It might seem obvious but the less you’re on the road, the less likely you are to be in an accident. By only driving when it would be inconvenient not to do so, insurers will lower your premium.
If you’re confident of not having to make a claim, a higher voluntary excess can save a lot of money. This is great if you intend to drive in quieter areas, where you’re less likely to experience any bumps.
Not claiming on your insurance in the first year can dramatically reduce your premium in the second. This saving increases with each year you don’t lodge a claim.
Prices, policies and your own circumstances change. When you come to the end of your cover, talk to your account manager about how you can save money.
Monthly payments may seem appealing at first, but they’ll end up costing you more in the long run. A lump annual payment will save you money.
Temporary insurance is great for experienced drivers who either drive very infrequently or want to drive someone else’s car for a few hours or a couple of days. It’s less effective for new drivers who want to drive regularly.
No problem. Most insurers will simply adjust your premium to reflect your new car’s insurance band and the new circumstances under which you’ll be driving it.
It will always depend on your situation, but if you’re a safe driver looking to save money on your premium then telematics policies are very attractive.
Dashboard cameras are like CCTV. If something happens, you can use the video they capture to prove your innocence. This reduces risk and makes these policies cheaper.
No. Wear and tear is considered part of the cost of owning a car. In any case, your no claims bonus is worth a lot more than the repair cost for minor bumps and blemishes.
