What information do I need to compare car insurance?

To get accurate quotes you'll need

To speed up the process, have these things ready before you start comparing.

How do I get cheap car insurance quotes?

Car insurance quotes are calculated using a string of factors - some simple for you to change, some you can’t easily control - including your age, years of driving experience and where you live. But that doesn't mean there aren't ways to get a cheaper car insurance quote and save quite a lot. Read our 10 tips to getting cheap car insurance.

The first thing to do is to check what other providers will offer you using our insurance comparison tool - that way you can see if your provider is offering you a competitive deal.

Read the Key Features document for policies you are considering to ensure that it also offers all of the right coverage for you, so it pays out when you need it. 

If you are renewing your car insurance, it helps to shop around - about three weeks ahead of time ideally - seen and go back to your current insurer and ask them to beat the best quote you find.

Other ways to cut car insurance costs

Pay your premiums annually

Paying car insurance in full for the whole year up front, instead of in monthly instalments, can save you money as you won't be charged interest on them..

Make sure you don’t have unnecessary add ons

Are you paying for add-ons you don’t need or that are covered by other insurance? Could you get separate breakdown or legal cover cheaper elsewhere?

Maximise your no-claims discount:

When you compare quotes for car insurance, make sure you can carry with you your no-claims bonus – the discount given to drivers who don’t claim on their insurance.

What car insurance cover do I need? 

It’s illegal to drive or park a car on a UK road without adequate car insurance. There are three types to choose from:

Fully comprehensive car insurance

The highest level of cover available protects you, your passengers and your car following an accident regardless of who’s to blame. It also covers anyone else harmed in the incident and pays out if their vehicle or property was damaged or destroyed. Fire damage, theft or attempted theft of your car is also covered.

Third party, fire and theft

Third party, fire and theft (TPFT) won’t cover your injuries or damage to your car following an incident, but it will protect others, including cars or other property, as well as covering for fire and theft losses relating to your car.

Third party

This is the most basic level of cover that’s legally allowed in the UK. It won’t pay out any losses you incur but will pay if other people, including any passengers you’re carrying, are injured. It also covers any damage or loss to another person’s property, as well as any injuries they sustain following an incident involving your car.
