How much will it cost to insure an imported car?
Cars imported to the UK are divided into two classes: ‘grey’ and ‘parallel’ imports. You can read about import car insurance in our useful guide.
Grey imports are vehicles that have been made outside the EU. These might not conform to European regulations and will have to pass the safety and environmental standard tests for UK roads, before being classified as legal. As these cars have been manufactured abroad and parts could be harder to source, they’ll probably cost you more to insure.
Parallel imports will have been built within the EU. As these will already conform to EU standards, they’re likely to be cheaper to insure.
