The car you drive
The age, model and engine size of your car will all affect the cost of your motor insurance. Generally, the smaller and less powerful the car, the cheaper the policy should be.
Levels of car insurance cover
- Third Party only – a basic level of cover for claims made against you by other people following an accident. It covers your liability for injury to others and damage to their property
- Third Party Fire and Theft – provides the same level of protection as third party only, but also covers your vehicle against fire damage or theft
- Comprehensive – provides all of the above, and includes accidental damage cover for your own car, plus other benefits such as cover for personal possessions or medical expenses
Third Party Fire and Theft is usually not much more expensive than Third Party only, but it provides important cover against fire and car theft. If you’re a student in a large city then cover against theft is worth considering.
Think about your mileage
If you reduce your annual mileage by living closer to the college or university campus then you are likely to receive cheaper car insurance quotes.
Keeping your car off the roadside at night, or better still in a locked garage, could contribute to a lower premium. If you have to park on the street outside your student accommodation, then park in a well-lit area and do not leave any valuables in the vehicle that can attract thieves.
If you’re living off campus in an area where you’re concerned about car theft, it may be worth installing extra security devices to your car. Insurance companies can give you advice – tracking devices and immobilisers are likely to attract a discount on your premium.
Car insurance is a legal requirement in the UK and if you don’t have it, you could be punished with a driving ban or hefty fine. Not to mention you won’t have adequate protection for yourself.
