A fixture on many ‘top ten’ car charts, the Ford Fiesta is the vehicle of choice for many fresh-faced drivers. Alongside its dashing good looks and ease of drive, the bog standard 1.25-litre model is cheap to run too. Both new and old Fiestas often fall into low insurance groups, and cost on average £830.06 for a year’s cover.
Because young inexperienced drivers fall into the highest risk categories however, premiums can get pricey. An effective way to help cut your costs if you’re a nifty driver is to consider black box insurance.
Black box (telematics) insurance involves fitting a small GPS device to your car, or downloading an app to your phone, which measures a variety of statistics related to your driving style. These statistics range from your acceleration speed and cornering abilities, to the types of roads you use and what time you drive. The gathered information paints a detailed picture of your driving ability for your insurer, which allows them to provide you with a personalised premium, rather than a statistical one.
Some insurerance providers also offer their customers regular personalised driving advice, delivered via handy smartphone apps. This allows you to identify areas where your driving needs to improve, potentially cutting the cost of your Ford insurance even more.
Whether you’re a new or experienced roadster however, it’s worth shopping around to find the perfect policy for you. 50% of our customers could save up to £289.47** on their motor insurance, so grab a quote for your Ford car insurance today and make sure you’ve got the best deal for you.
