Who is Vauxhall?

Vauxhall is a British car manufacturer that was founded by Alexander Wilson in 1837. Today, it makes Vauxhall cars for the UK market and Opels – exactly the same but under a different name – for other markets around the world.

Based in Chalton in Bedfordshire, it has been part of the PSA Group, which also includes the Peugeot and Citroen brands, since 2017.

How much does a Vauxhall cost to insure?

The cost of insuring a Vauxhall will depend on the model you have, as well as a range of factors such as your age and driving history.

 

Insurance providers sort cars into different insurance groups, with one being least expensive and 50 the most expensive. And if you drive a more powerful car, it’s likely to be in a high insurance group.

 

That said, the most expensive Vauxhall model to insure is the unassuming Corsa – probably because it’s a popular car among younger drivers who pay higher premiums overall.

What extra features can I add to my Vauxhall policy?

Most insurers allow you to add extra features to your car insurance policy. The options available include:

tools icon

Breakdown cover

gavel icon

Motor legal protection

How can I cut the cost of my Vauxhall insurance?

Lowering your car insurance premiums may be possible when you take certain steps, such as:

  • tick icon

    Increasing your voluntary excess

    Pay a higher voluntary excess shows insurers you're unlikely to make frivolous or small claims

  • tick icon

    Avoiding small claims

    By avoiding small claims you'll have a better chance of building your no-claims bonus - earning you lower premiums in the future

  • tick icon

    Reducing your mileage

    Driving fewer miles reduces your risk of being involved in an accident, so you're less likely to need to claim

  • tick icon

    Paying premiums annually

    Paying annually generally works out cheaper than spreading the cost over 12 months, though it does mean a bigger initial payment
