A simples guide

Cheap Skoda Insurance

Skoda has quite a history. They started life as a bicycle repair shop in 1895 would you believe, and then made motorbikes before venturing into cars.  Like the Czech Republic as a whole, the company suffered under occupation during the Second World War and then became the butt of jokes under the Soviet occupation.

The history

Only in 1987 with the Italian designed, and Western engine powered Favorit did they begin to be lose their image and sell well. Then, with the fall of the Berlin Wall, Skoda joined VW, a partnership that was formalised in 1991.

Since then, Skoda has gone from strength to strength, winning the “Best Car to Own” award from Auto Express and the Daily Telegraph in 2013 and selling over a million cars in the year 2014.

So, how affordable is Skoda insurance?

It is important to remember that insuring any car depends on a number of different things.  Some of these depend on you the driver such as your age, your driving experience and where you live. Other factors depend upon the car, the market value and the insurance group for example.

Insurance groupings take account a number of factors including repair costs, part prices, safety features, security and car performance.

You will notice in the table below that the insurance group can vary significantly for the same make of car depending on the specific model and engine type.
