What does the cost of my car insurance depend on?

Your specific car insurance quote takes into account a large number of factors -some related to you, and some related to the car you drive.

For example, your age, how long you’ve been driving, where you live, and even what you do for a living are all factored in to the calculation of the price.

Then there’s the car. What model is it - and therefore which insurance group, how many miles a year do you drive, what’s its value? These factors can make a big difference. Check out our list of the cheapest car models, to see how this compares too.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that the answer to all those questions is the same for every insurance provider, so why do they have different prices?

Well, to start with, while insurance providers calculate their prices in broadly similar ways, they all have their own models and formulas that they use. These produce different answers. They also have different attitudes to the risks that they’re willing to take. While some insurance providers will specialise in providing quotes for younger drivers for example, some may prefer not to.

How do I find the cheapest insurance then?

Great question. We’ve spent a lot of time looking at ways to reduce the cost of your car insurance here.

This page gives you a host of top tips on getting the lowest price for you.

A word on auto-renewal

If your insurance provider is one that auto-renews, you might think that you don’t need to worry about getting the best deal for your car. Your policy simply renews and you trust your insurance provider to give you the best price possible. You may want to think again.

There’s no doubt that simply allowing your policy to renew automatically is the easiest option. You don’t need to do anything other than check that the information provided is correct.

If it’s cheapest you want though, this isn’t the answer. Our experts calculate that you could save up to £283** by shopping around and comparing rather than auto renewing. That’s quite a difference and probably worth a few minutes of your time.

Can telematics help me save on my insurance?

If you’ve not heard of a telematics, or a black-box car insurance policy as they’re also known, it’s worth finding out more. For some drivers, younger ones particularly, these policies can help you save money on your car insurance.
