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 cover do I need for my Vauxhall?

When you take out cover for your Vauxhall, you’ll be able to choose from three types of car insurance:

  • Fully comprehensive

    Fully comprehensive policies cover you for damage, repairs and more for your own car, as well as damage done to a third-party, their vehicle or their property

    £688 on average2

  • Third-party, fire and theft

    Third-party, fire and theft offers protection if you cause damage to other people, their vehicles and their property, and also provides cover for your own vehicle if it’s stolen or damaged by fire

    £995 on average2

  • Third-party only

    Third-party only car insurance only provides cover for damage you do to a third party, their vehicle or their property. It won’t pay out for any damage done to your own car

    £1,528 on average2

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:

  • Breakdown cover

    Breakdown cover pays out for roadside assistance if your vehicle breaks down

  • Motor legal protection

    Motor legal protection covers legal costs you might face related to a car insurance claim

  • Personal accident cover

    Personal accident cover offers a compensation pay-out if you’re injured or killed in an accident

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:

  • 1

    Increasing your voluntary excess

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

  • 2

    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

  • 3

    Reducing your mileage

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

  • 4

    Paying premiums annually

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