When it comes to making your car insurance quote cheaper, every little bit helps!


No matter if it's your first ,or your tenth, time to get car insurance, there's plenty you can do to help bring the cost down.

Putting in the time and effort to make sure you're getting the best quote that you possibly can will help you in the long run.

Just think of the savings...


Use technology to your advantage

Without doubt, the best way to prove it to your insurance company that you're a good driver is to show it to them. Research conducted by AIG Insurance showed that 75% of their customers think telematic monitoring should be compulsory for learner and newly-qualified drivers.

Not only should this help make the roads safer, it rewards those who drive safely with a cheaper insurance quote. Click here to find out more about AIG BoxClever to turn your safe driving into a cheaper car insurance quote!

Know your car's true value


Look, we totally get it if your car basically means everything to you. That said, it's important to know the current monetary value of your car when you're looking to get a quote.

The best way to do this is by using a depreciation calculator. You'd be surprised how much the value can change from when you first bought it.

Drop the mileage

We get that the point of having a car is to actually use it on the road, but use alternative transport when you can. Maybe walk to the gym instead of driving, or look into cycling to work.


Apart from the fact this can help bring down the cost of your insurance (especially when you're using telematics), but it'll have plenty of health benefits too.

Increase your voluntary excess

Putting your hand in your pocket today could help save you money in the long run. If you're willing to put more money towards the cost of any accident repairs can bring down the cost of your insurance premium.

Plus, you can often claim this back in cases where you weren't at fault for the accident.

Protect your no claims bonus


This may seem obvious, but it cannot be stressed enough. Guarding your no claims bonus can make things a hell of a lot cheaper, and the longer you can keep the ball rolling, the better.

Opting for step-back no-claims protection when taking out your next car insurance could mean you don’t lose all of your discount if you do ever need to make a claim.

If you're aged 27 or under, AIG BoxClever could be the secret for good value and affordable car insurance. Simply by proving that you're a safe driver, you could end up with a cheaper quote. The safer you drive, the more kilometres you will be rewarded enabling you to stay in the driver's seat for longer. Find out more here.
