If you’ve moved home or office, or have gone on an advanced driving course, you could qualify for cheaper car insurance.
There are several factors that could affect your insurance premiums, so it’s smart to get a new quote every year from your current insurer. You could also take it one step further by getting a quote from another insurer to assess if you could be getting a better offering elsewhere. It might take a bit of time and “admin”, but you could be saving money with a new or updated premium.

Shopping around also empowers you with knowledge to make better choices, and you’re more equipped to make decisions that are you good for your wallet, assuming you have decent cover.
If you’ve had any life or work changes, then let your insurer know as this could affect your cover and premiums. For example, if you previously lived in a complex under cover and with a 24-hour guard, and move to a house with no cover and in a higher-crime area, your premiums could go up. While this might seem like an expensive factor you don’t want to disclose, it’s imperative you do in order to receive full benefits if you claim. Alternatively, some things could lower your premium. These include:
Going on a defensive driving course
Going on an advanced driving course will improve a driver’s skills. Insurers will assume you are a safe driver.
