Car insurance for student drivers
ingenie offer great savings on car insurance for young drivers, so you can spend less on your premiums and more on trips out with your mates.
Making driving affordable for students
These high premiums aren’t because you’re a bad driver - we've actually done research that found students to be one of the safest type of drivers in the UK. But, despite your excellent driving, you're still assessed based on the overall driving standard of your age group. Great.
Luckily though, with black box insurance, we can treat you as an individual based on how you actually drive. So you’ll get a competitive price upfront and have the chance to earn up to 21% off over the year for your good driving.
More ways to get best VALUE car insurance
Pick your car wisely
It’s a good idea to avoid a high-value car, as parking where hundreds of new-ish drivers are could lead to a few dents here and there. To save a bit on your insurance premium, go for a smaller engine too - under 1.5 is best.
However, you still need to be fussy over a few things. Fuel efficiency and vehicle tax are 2 more considerations - how much fuel are you going to have to buy to get around and how much tax are you going to have to pay?
Cars in low insurance groups are not only cheaper to insure - they’re also likely to have low vehicle tax and could even be exempt.
Beware ‘money saving’ tricks
Some people resort to fronting, which means getting insured as a named driver on a parent’s policy, even though you’re actually the main driver. This is illegal and could make your insurance invalid - meaning you’re not covered to drive and wouldn’t be able to claim for the damage to your car if you crashed.
Remember the point of insurance: it’s to protect you from the huge cost of crashing. If you can’t get that money after a crash, you’re worse off than if you hadn’t bought the fraudulent policy in the first place.
