How to Drive Down the Cost of Car Insurance



Switching car insuranceprovider can be a painless way to save hundreds of pounds or more a year. You should compare deals whenever you come to renew and may even be able to save by paying an exit penalty and changing mid-term. Bear in mind that there are few rewards for loyalty.

Shop around. You can compare prices across scores of insurers in minutes at comparison websites, but be aware that some sites provide estimates rather than binding quotes. Some companies will strip their policies to push them to the top of the tables, so check the excesses payable if you need to make a claim and whether a policy includes extras such as legal cover or courtesy car provision.

Test your titles. Be as specific as possible when entering your job description. For example, the title manager gives insurers less of an ideaof your risk profile than a callcentre manager. The latter is clearly a desk job with no driving involved and would cost less to cover.

Add a second driver. In the event the insurance company went broke it would automatically invalidate the policy and the driver will be charged with driving uninsured.

Lower your risk. Insurers increase prices if your car is vulnerable to theft or vandalism, so you could pay hundreds of pounds more if you park on the street rather than in a garage or on a driveway. If your car does not have an alarm, you can save a further 10 per cent by fittingan approved system.

Don’t skimp on cover, though it may be tempting to cut back on it to save money – go for a comprehensive cover.

Look for special offers. Most providers offer better rates to people who buy online – through their own websites or a comparison site. Discounts of up to 15 per cent on the telephone price are typical. Tesco is giving a £100 pressure washer to new customers who are Tesco Clubcard holders and buy a policy. This includes 24-hour roadside assistance, with no call-out charge and up to an hour’s free roadside labour. For greener-minded drivers, Co-operative car insurance will offset 20 per cent of fuel emissions and provides an accident recovery service.
