If you’re a young or new driver and looking for cheap car insurance, you will know that the insurance cost can be extremely expensive, especially if it is your first insurance policy.
There are ways of getting lower premiums for new and young drivers, think about the car you are going to buy, make sure they your vehicle is in a low car group and we recommend that you get a quote before you buy your first car, so that there are no surprises.
You may also want to consider adding your parent onto your policy as many insurers give cheaper quotations to new and young drivers for adding a parent onto your policy.
It’s not always the case that the older the vehicle the cheaper the insurance as some insurers recognize that newer vehicles are much safer vehicles, so make sure you look at several different options.
One other way you can reduce your insurance premium is by opting for a telematics policy which tracks your driving and can reward you for being a good driver. It’s also an ideal way of making sure you are a safe driver as many of these policies provide an on-line dashboard so that you can see how you have been driving. In addition, if your vehicle is stolen, many of these policies can track your vehicle, making it easier for your insurers to find your car.
We want your first insurance policy to be as competitive as possible, but we also want to make sure you drive safely which in turn will lower your insurance premiums.
