Can I compare quotes for my double cab pick-up?
Although double cabs, such as the Nissan Navara or Toyota HiLux, are often used as family vehicles, they are classed on our system as light commercial vehicles due to their dual purpose (business and social use). You can compare quotes for this type of vehicle by visiting our van insurance comparison, rather than our car insurance comparison
Should I accept my renewal price?
Simply allowing your policy to roll on for another year may look like an attractive and easy option, but it could cost you dear. Comparison websites like Gocompare.com mean that it has never been easier or quicker to check prices from a large range of insurers and against a background of rising premiums the savings can be substantialScott Kelly, car insurance expert
What are the benefits of a comprehensive policy?
Fully comprehensive insurance covers everything that third party fire and theft does, but the car will also be covered for any type of flood damage. In addition, drivers will normally be covered for windscreen cover, personal effects, accidental damage and medical expenses, tooScott Kelly, car insurance expert
Does my car insurance offer cover for flood damage?
Drivers with third party only or third party fire and theft policies will not be covered for flood damage, but those with fully comprehensive policies may be. A third-party policy is sometimes cheaper than comprehensive cover, but it's essential that drivers know exactly what is and isn't included, especially if they're at risk of flood damageScott Kelly, car insurance expert
Have you got adequate cover for the contents of your car?
The purpose of motor insurance is to give financial protection for your vehicle, not the stuff you keep inside it. Cover for personal belongings is typically limited to fully comprehensive policies and restricted to around £100. If you need to leave valuable items in your car, make sure they are out of sight and locked in the bootScott Kelly, car insurance expert
Drivers warned of dangers of 'fronting'
Fronting is when a lower risk driver insures a vehicle in their name when the main driver is from a higher risk category. This could invalidate insurance and lead to a criminal record. There are legal ways to reduce premiums for young drivers... instead of fronting parents should consider adding themselves as a named driver on their offspring's policyScott Kelly, car insurance expert
What does the ECJ gender ruling mean for women drivers?
The European Court of Justice's gender ruling - in force from 21 December, 2012 - has meant that insurers can no longer make a gender distinction when calculating premiums. Amongst many changes, this has led to an increase in prices for young female drivers, who traditionally paid less than young menSean Davies, Gocompare.com
