How to get a car insurance quote

If you know your number plate it’ll save you time, but if not just choose your make and model and you’re on your way to quotes galore.

Your car’s value

How much no-claims bonus you’ve amassed

Your annual mileage

Usage — social, commuting or business

Your occupation

Opt to protect your no-claims bonus

Decide whether to pay monthly or annually

Change any of these and you’ll get a fresh set of prices to fit your new answers.

Whether you need comprehensive insurance, third party fire and theft or third party only for just the one car or many, it’s easy to get the cover you need.

You don’t need to take our word for it either — when you get your quotes they come along with helpful information and star ratings from financial researcher Defaqto, so you’ll see exactly what you’re buying.

Consider the car you drive

More powerful cars tend to have more expensive accidents, can be pricier to repair and fall into higher insurance groups. Older cars with more miles on the clock, smaller engines and lower price tags usually fall into lower insurance groups.

Increase your voluntary excess

Prices may change if you’re willing to a pay a little more towards any claims. Make sure to also consider any compulsory excess listed on a policy, as you’ll need to have funds available to cover the total policy excess.

Add a named driver

Adding an experienced driver to your policy can lower prices. You should always list the person who drives the car most often as the main driver, and any occasional drivers as additional.

Extra security

Increasing the security of your car above the standard manufacturer level can help, but even basics like parking off-road can affect prices.

No-claims bonus

Building up a no-claims bonus can help shave pounds off your premium.
