How could I get cheaper car insurance?

We’ve got 10 tips to get those premiums down

  1. Pay annually

    Paying a lump sum almost always works out cheaper than paying monthly

  2. Tighten your security

    Alarms and immobilisers might help

  3. Avoid modifications

    Try not to make too many changes to your car

  4. Increase voluntary excess

    But make sure you have enough money to pay up, if you need to

  5. Driving courses

    Get some more qualifications like Pass Plus under your belt

  6. Less miles

    The lower your mileage, the less you could be paying but be accurate with your estimation

  7. Park securely

    In a garage or on a driveway overnight

  8. Beware of add-ons

    Any hidden extras lurking in your policy?

  9. Don’t ignore admin charges

    You might have to pay just to change your address

Frequently asked questions

  • How can your job affect your car insurance?

    It might not seem very fair, but your job title could have an impact on your premiums as well as what you’re using the car for. Always be honest and choose the job title that most accurately describes what you do.

  • How do I work out my car’s value?

    Always estimate your car’s value honestly, but an approximate estimation is usually fine as an insurer will typically base a pay-out on market value. When you get a quote, we’ll help you by estimating your car’s value for you based on its age and mileage, but you can change it if it doesn’t seem right.

  • How do I estimate mileage?

    If you’ve had your car for over a year and your usage remains similar, check previous MOT certificates and/or service records.

    Alternatively, calculate the number of miles you drive in a typical week and multiply this by 52, factoring in regular journeys and extras such as long annual trips abroad.
