How much are you looking at to insure your TVR?
To give you an idea of what this means in pennies, we’ve run a report on the most popular TVR models and the average insurance prices of each: The Chimaera comes in at a very reasonable £159.06, the Tuscan at £497.07 and the TVR Griffith, at £220.06. Perhaps not as steep as you might have thought. Our average premiums are based on all our customer quotes, from people with different age ranges, addresses and driving histories. You may find a cheaper or more expensive quote based on your personal circumstances.
As we don’t work with Classic Car Insurers, these quotes are from mainstream car insurance providers – the most competitive being Performance Direct, Right Choice, and Privilege.
How can you lower the insurance premium on your TVR?
If you’ve stretched the finances to become the owner of your dream car, and the TVR car insurance quote you’ve had so far is a little out of your budget, don’t panic, as there are a few things you can do to bring it down:
Add-ons: Think about what you need from your TVR car insurance. Make sure that what’s being sold to you meets your requirements; you don’t want to pay for features you don’t really need.
Security: Immobilisers and GPS trackers can lower your insurance premium, as long as they conform to certain standards. They will also reduce the risk of your pride and joy being stolen. Just bear in mind you may need to speak directly with your insurer to see these reductions reflected in your premium.
Increased voluntary excess: Paying more towards the cost of your claim could bring down your premium. You may also have a compulsory excess so make sure you can afford to pay the full excess amount in the event of a claim. And if you’re not at fault in an accident, the excess can be recovered anyway.
