The excitement of passing a test is deciding which car you are going to buy. On the other hand, the biggest worry is finding the cheapest car insurance with few cars attracting cheap car insurance for new drivers.
The Ford KA is the cheapest car to insure for new car drivers – with an average premium of £1,651.40 for 17-18 year-olds. The Peugeot 107, Citroen C1 and Mini One all also attract cheaper car insurance. The more energy efficient models will be in the lower insurance groups – the Suzuki Swift and Vauxhall Corsa all fall into this group.
When considering which car to buy it is best to ask your instructor’s opinion – they can advise you on not only what sort of car would suit you but also one which is not likely to be too expensive to insure.
Here are some tips on finding cheaper car insurance:
– Consider becoming a named driver on a parent or partner’s insurance policy.
– Do your own research on insurance quotes – don’t just rely on comparison sites as they don’t necessarily list all insurers.
– Consider insurers that uses a Black Box to calculate insurance.
– Pay upfront if you can as this works out cheaper than paying through instalments.
