Can I cut the cost of my Smart car insurance?
There are a few steps to take that could possibly help you to reduce the cost of insurance for your Smart car. Telematics insurance is a great place to start. If you share the car with another, more experienced driver, you might also want to think about adding them as a named driver to your policy (just watch out that you aren’t committing insurance fraud known as ‘fronting’ when you do this). And if you have a garage on your property, parking your car in there overnight could also lead to a discount with some insurance providers.
