A simples guide

Vauxhall car insurance

Whether you’re a shiny new driver or a seasoned roadster, Vauxhall’s huge choice of cars offer something for absolutely everyone. The brand’s flagship models include popular compact hatchbacks like the Astra, to roomy family favourites like the Zafira. For many first-time drivers looking for a budget-friendly runaround, the Vauxhall Corsa is a no brainer.

What should be considered when insuring a Vauxhall?

The cost of Vauxhall car insurance depends on lots of things, from personal factors such as your age and driving history, to the car model itself. Every car on the market is grouped into categories numbered from 1-50, with those at the lower end of the scale typically being the cheapest to insure. Which number your car falls under is decided by an array of factors, such as the age of the vehicle, its value, performance, security, and the cost of potential repairs.

The first decision to make is whether you want comprehensive, third party fire and theft (TPFT), or third party insurance. Third party is the minimum insurance cover, and takes care of things if you damage someone else’s property or cause them injury. Third party fire and theft gives you additional protection if your car is lost to a fire or stolen. Comprehensive insurance covers all of the above, along with damage to your own vehicle too. When choosing an insurer you shouldn’t just opt for the cheapest, but the one that will best suit your needs.

Cutting the costs

To really save some pennies on your Vauxhall car insurance, it’s worth considering black box insurance. Put simply, black box insurance involves fitting a small smartphone-sized device within your car, which through the magic of GPS technology provides your insurer with accurate details of your speed, braking, cornering, and acceleration – pretty much your skill as a driver. This information allows them to assess your risk level and insure you on an individual basis, rather than a statistical one. If you’re a pretty good driver in a high-risk group (for example a young driver, or someone with previous claims), it can be an excellent money saver.
