Car Insurance Quick Reads
* 51% of consumers could save £200. The providers on the system were split into different categories. High volume sales provider’s quotes were then selected as well as quotes from other providers which returned a price. Based on UK insurance market share data made available by the ABI, by way of a weighted selection process, the cheapest of either the high volume sales providers or other providers (“the cheapest selected quote”) were selected. The cheapest quote on the system was then compared against the cheapest selected quote. The savings figure which 51% or over could have saved was calculated using that formula. The savings you could achieve are dependent on your individual circumstances and how you selected your current insurance supplier.

No, there are 3 main types of insurance policy:
Third party: This is the minimum level of car insurance required under UK law, and is essentially intended to protect other drivers when you take to the roads. It covers you if you damage someone else’s property or injure them while driving, and will cover your passengers too. Third Party does not cover some key elements, those include: damage to your car if you caused the accident and you will not be covered if your car is stolen or destroyed by fire. You must check if this policy is right for you.
Third party, fire, and theft (TPFT): In addition to the above, you will also be covered if your car is stolen or destroyed by fire.
Comprehensive cover: This is the highest level of cover, in addition to Third party, fire and theft you will also be covered for damage to your vehicle if you cause the accident. There are often many additional benefits that are added to the policy in order make ‘Comprehensive cover’ even more attractive. You must check if this policy is right for you.
The car insurance compulsory excess is the amount you will be required to pay when you make a claim on your policy. In other words, it's the amount you agree to contribute towards the cost of a claim, with the insurer covering the remaining amount.
Voluntary excess is the amount of money that you are willing to pay in addition to the ‘compulsory excess’, in the event that you should have to make a claim. The benefit in having a ‘voluntary excess’ is that you overall insurance premium is likely to be cheaper.
Car insurance is based on risk. The higher the perceived risk, the higher the cost of the insurance. Car insurance companies have many factors that impact the cost of the insurance. The main ones are:
Age: Generally the older you are, the cheaper the insurance.
Value of Car: Generally the more expensive the car, the more expensive the insurance.
Location: Insurance companies look at how many claims are made in each town. The more claims made in your town, the more expensive the insurance.
Your Driving History: Generally the longer that you have been driving the cheaper the insurance, however this will also be impacted if you have to claim on your insurance. Your insurance will be more expensive with te number of claims that you make.
Type of Insurance: As above, depending on what type of insurance policy you have will directly impact the price that you have to pay.
