Car insurance is set to rise by up to £75 a year on average as a result of government ruling. This is a double whammy for drivers who have already been hit with price increases – car insurance was up at least 12% over 2016 according to the AA.
For those aged under 22 or over 65 the bad news doesn’t stop there. It’s estimated car insurance for younger drivers could rise by an eye-watering £1,000, whilst those over 65 could face a £300 increase!
How can I beat the latest car insurance price hike?

1. Compare today, save tomorrow

Don’t forget if you’re up for renewal never automatically accept your renewal quote, shop around to check you’re not being ripped off! Alternatively if you’re midway through your policy it’s not too late to switch to a better deal – just make sure you factor in the admin fee to cancel early.

2. Add an extra driver
Adding a secondary driver to your policy could help you save on your insurance. For the best savings ideally the secondary driver should have a clear driving license and healthy no-claims history.
3. Pay in full
If you can afford to pay your premium off in one go you will save yourself money in the long run. When you pay in monthly instalments it’s worth remembering insurers will usually whack a hefty interest rate on top!
