Although comparing different car insurance quotes is one side of the equation, there are a number of things that should be considered by our teenager. Car insurance premiums can be brought down by doing the following:
- Modifying a car with alloys or expensive exhausts will only add to the cost of repairs if an accident does occur, therefore adding to the cost of insurance
- Buying a car with a small engine will reduce the amount paid
- The same applies to buying a cheaper car
Once a teenager has bought themselves a modest car and resisted the urge to add a sauna and disco lights, they will need to give serious consideration to the car insurance policy they will take out. When comparing car insurance quotes it is important to choose whether or not third party fire and theft insurance or fully comprehensive car insurance.
Third party fire and theft car insurance will provide a teenager with cover for damages relating to damage to a third party’s property, fire or vehicle theft. Fully comprehensive teenage car insurance provides cover for the things that third party fire and theft insurance does not as well as insuring the actual vehicle itself.
