Car insurance for 18-year-olds
Taking driving lessons, buying a car, insurance? It can be overwhelming – and expensive. At ingenie we’re here to give control back to you.
Black box liberates learners and young drivers
Teenage drivers can face huge quotes when they come to buy a car, which is a bit of a downer when getting on the road is supposed to be an exciting time. But there is a way you can make your insurance more affordable, even if you’ve not got much driving experience yet.
ingenie’s black box insurance lets you pay for your insurance based on how you drive rather than based on how some other drivers your age may drive.
How teenage drivers can SAVE money on insurance
Get researching the best deals
It’s important to remember that the cheapest quote may not necessarily be the best, so you need to make sure you completely know what cover you’re getting and you’re aware of any restrictions the policy may have.
You don’t want to sign up to something that looks like a bargain, then realise after you can’t drive after 10pm or go over 5,000 miles – 2 things ingenie doesn’t do.
A quote may be cheaper upfront, but with some insurers you’re stuck with that price all year. ingenie gives you the chance to earn money off at 3, 6 and 9 months instead of waiting a whole year.
Don’t get the car all your mates have
The type of car you drive can vary the price of your insurance massively. A brand new, off the ramp, flashy sports car is going to be more expensive to insure than a little run around that’s seen better days but gets you from A to B.
It’s tempting, but don’t pick the car all your mates have or the one you’ve seen everyone your age driving. If they’re the cars that are popular with 18-year-olds, and the insurers are seeing high crash rates from those cars, it spells out risk.
Research lots of different makes and models before you buy and look at cars in lower insurance groups. They'll be cheaper to insure - they’re also likely to have low vehicle tax and could even be exempt.
