What Are The Different Types of Car Insurance?
There’s a good chance you’ve received endless quotes already. But if you’re confused about the different types of car insurance available – you’re not alone. Levels of insurance essentially include:
- Third-Party Only
Third-party only is the minimum legal requirement for car insurance, insuring you against damage caused to someone else and/or their property while you’re driving. So, if you have an accident with passengers in the car, you’ll know that they will be covered. When you get a car insurance quote of this kind, however, you should be aware that it doesn’t cover your car against repair or replacement meaning if your car is badly damaged it will be your financial responsibility to get it fixed.
- Third-party, fire and theft
This type of car insurance is the same as above, but it also covers your car if it’s stolen or damaged by fire meaning a repair or replacement shouldn’t put you out of pocket.
Comprehensive car insurance offers considerably more protection to motorists covering not only you and your car but also other people and their property. Comprehensive cover allows for ultimate peace of mind providing a much-needed financial safety net following an incident.
Car Insurance Costs – Why Are Some Insurance Groups More Expensive?
There are many factors which can affect the price of car insurance.
- The type of car you own
When it comes to insurance, every car is put into an insurance group which helps to decide the price of cover. Cars are assigned to an insurance group based on many factors including: engine size (performance cars with powerful engines are generally more expensive to insure than vehicles with smaller engines), potential replacement and repair costs, vehicle safety, car security and more.
Of course, if you want to get cheap car insurance you can do a number of things such as adding security enhancing systems or paying a higher voluntary excess.
- The type of driver you are
If you’re a learner driver or are aged under 25-years old, car insurance quotes can be rather costly as many standard insurance providers will automatically place you in a high risk category. That said, at Quoteline Direct, our team of experts spend time finding the cheapest policy to meet your needs.
What’s more, convicted drivers and drivers with claims can also be faced with higher premiums. Again, we offer good value cover to make getting behind the wheel easier – and more affordable.
What Are The New Emission Regulations for Car Tax?
As well as car insurance you must also think about car tax. With this in mind it’s essential to understand that as of April 2017, only cars that produce zero emissions such as electric cars benefit from zero road tax. But, if you look out for low emission used cars registered before April 2017 you could still get a quality little runner that qualifies for no car road tax. Moreover, new car tax rates were announced in April 2018 with cars registered after this date being charged higher fees.
