How does my job affect my car insurance?
What you do for a living tells the insurance providers more about you and how likely you are to claim. You may think, quite rightly so, that racing car drivers pay more for their car insurance. But you may be surprised to learn that some more common job types, like estate agents, disc jockeys and football players, are also likely to pay more. This is due to a variety of factors, including being seen to drive more.
But even similar job titles can result in different premiums, for example, construction worker and bricklayer, or chef and kitchen staff. So if your job title fits in more than one category, it might be worth checking quotes for all of them. But remember the details you give should be as accurate as possible and not misleading, otherwise you could invalidate your policy.
