How to reduce the cost of car insurance
MoneySuperMarket data shows the average cost of annual car insurance last autumn (October – December 2016) was £566 – an increase of 10% compared to 2015 (meaning you will now typically pay £52 more than a year ago).
With premiums rising, here’s how to save:
Don’t auto-renew: UK motorists lose around £1.3bn by rolling over their policies with the same insurer every year.
Compare quotes: Market research company, Consumer Intelligence, found that 51% of customers who search for car insurance through us could save up to £275 on their annual premium*.
Increase your excess: Insurers are likely to reduce the cost of cover if you increase your excess. Just make sure your excess is affordable. Read our voluntary excess guide.
Build a no claims discount: Most insurers reward drivers for claims-free driving.

What type of car insurance should I get?
Third party provides the lowest level of cover and is usually the cheapest type of car insurance. You are insured if you cause damage to another person’s car or injure them, but nothing will be paid out for any damage or injury to you or your car.
With third party, fire and theft you have additional cover to repair or replace your car if it’s stolen, damaged or destroyed by fire.
Fully comprehensive is the highest level of cover and provides protection for you and other drivers if an accident happens.
Our dedicated guides will help you work out which type of cover is right for you and your motor.
