    Getting a car insurance quote is easy

    Plus, our 14 day cooling-off period means if you decide not to continue with your policy, we won’t charge a cancellation fee. To get a quote you’ll need:

    About your car

    • You’ll need your car registration details, so have this ready. We should be able to find the exact make and model of your vehicle from your number plate, but these details are also found in your logbook (V5C). Also, think about where you intend to keep it overnight and your annual mileage as this may affect how much you pay.

        About you

        • We need details of your driver’s licence and your driving history. This means previous claims or convictions. If you know your no claim bonus (NCB) then we will apply any discount to your quote. If you don’t know what your no claim bonus is, contact your previous insurer to get this information.

          About other drivers

          • You may want to allow someone else to drive your car, then you’ll need their details too. Have their driving licence and claims and convictions history handy. Now you have everything to hand you’re ready to start your quote.


            Car insurance groups and how they work

            Higher performance cars with larger engines are generally considered a greater risk to insure than cars with smaller engines and therefore are placed in a higher group. There are 50 groups in total ranging from: group 1 e.g. Skoda Citigo SE – cheaper to insure, up to group 50 e.g. Bentley Flying Spur – more expensive to insure. Your car’s insurance group is not limited to but determined by:

            • The cost of your car when new
            • The cost of replacement parts, time and labour costs for your car
            • Its performance, meaning 0-60mph acceleration and top speed
            • Its safety features, e.g. test crash rating
            • Its security features, e.g. alarms, immobilisers

            Insurance costs explained

            We’ll always try to keep you in the know, particularly when it comes to rising car insurance costs. Be aware of these factors…

            Your age

            As a rule of thumb, the younger you are the less experienced you are at driving. As you get older, you become more experienced and generally your premiums go down. However, as you get much older, the chance of you being involved in an accident rises, so your premiums may rise again.

            Your car

            This is one aspect where size really does matter. Larger cars are more expensive to insure than smaller run-arounds. They can potentially cause more damage in an accident. They’re usually more attractive to thieves, and have more complicated parts that are also more costly to repair.

            Your driving history

            Every year that you drive without having an accident, you will earn a year’s no claim bonus. You’re seen as a careful driver and this helps to keep your premiums low. Plus, the holder of a clean licence is regarded as less of a risk than a person with six points for speeding.

            Cost of repairs 

            Often manufactured abroad, the price of sourcing car parts can vary due to currency fluctuations. Plus, as cars become more technological, replacing parts such as a wing mirror (now fitted with blind-spot monitoring and indicator inserts) is more costly.

            Ways to save money

            Some factors to consider…

            • Third party is not necessarily cheaper than comprehensive
            • Black box insurance is a great way for young drivers to improve their driving while earning rewards
            • A higher excess fee could help to lower your premium but you will have to pay more if you need to claim
            • Paying your premium annually rather than monthly can save money
            • Try to reduce your average annual mileage to reduce your level of risk
            • Don’t modify your car unless strictly necessarily.
