According to the recent changes in norms, insurance has become expensive, especially for young drivers. According to the recent changes in policies, cost of insurance may rise to £75 for old drivers but in the case of young drivers (i.e. below 25 years), the cost may rise to £2000.

  • Do you have a No Claims Bonus? A no claims bonus helps drivers get no claims on an insurance premium for the first year and a discounted rate in consecutive years. This will help drivers pay less or next to nothing in the first year, with following years dropping to possibly 30-40% less.
  • Schemes offered by the insurance companies: If you have been driving somebody else’s car and you have years of experience, insurance companies can offer plans that are great. These schemes will help you get the designation as an experienced driver and a reduced premium.
  • Purchase small cars: Small engines are easy to maintain and therefore economical to insure. If young drivers don’t want to pay higher insurance premiums, they should purchase small or hatchback cars with small engines to save money.

Many drivers are opting out of insurance premiums because of the increase in price. But this is a huge risk that should not be taken. Follow these smart hacks and get your car insured at discounted prices and drive safe.
