Frequently asked questions
How much does a Mini cost to insure?
The cost to insure a Mini depends on two things – your personal circumstances as a driver, and which car insurance group the car in question has been placed in (there are 50 car insurance groups – the higher the group, the higher the cost to insure).
If you are a new driver, for example, you’ll likely pay more to insure your Mini than an experienced driver would. Other factors like where you park your car overnight and vehicle modifications could also have an effect on your premiums.
From a car insurance group perspective, most Minis fall into the average range, which means that they’re relatively affordable to insure. The vast majority have been placed in the early and mid-teens and early 20s, with a few included in the mid-30s groups.
Can I cut the cost of my Mini insurance?
You may be able to cut the cost of your Mini car insurance. Telematics insurance is always a great option to consider. You may also wish to increase your voluntary excess and investing in an alarm or immobiliser for your vehicle might also lead to a decrease in price.
