What our customers say

Friends enjoying their road trip.

Can you get cheaper insurance as a student?

If you answer yes to all these questions consider...

Can you afford to pay annually?

Paying for your insurance in one go each year will be cheaper than paying in monthly instalments when interest is added.

Could you pay a higher excess?

Choosing to pay a higher voluntary excess – the amount you pay towards a claim – may lower your premiums. Be sure you could afford to pay it if you needed to claim.

Can you add a named driver?

Adding an older, more experienced named driver to your policy is another way to bring down your premiums. But make sure you are listed as the main driver.

Can you improve your car’s security?

If you cannot park your car on a driveway or garage overnight, adding security features such as an alarm or immobiliser can reduce premiums.

Is car insurance more expensive for students?

Unfortunately, car insurance tends to be more expensive if you’re a student. There are several reasons for this. First, there’s the typical age of a student, which will be between 18 and 25. This puts them in the high-risk age bracket so far as insurers are concerned – younger people being the most likely to have high-cost car accidents. 

You can’t do anything about your age, but avoiding unnecessary trips, especially with passengers, and trying to park in well-lit, low-crime areas will help.
