I'm sure we both agree that insuring a car is far too expensive, and paying monthly is the best choice for many motorists. We are here to help you find a good cheap policy, without you having to make a large advance payment. Can you get it? Yes, you probably can.
However, I cannot emphasise this enough:
There is simply no such thing as a no, zero, nil deposit policy. A small sum, at least, has to be paid in advance. Otherwise, your cover simply wouldn't be legal. There may be a way round this though; see the FAQ (frequently asked Questions).
Here's the good news though!
It is possible to pay as little as 1/12 of the total premium to start with. Regular payments can then be made for up to a full year. Upon renewal it is often possible to simply continue with the new periodic instalment.
And why not?
After all, this is the way that most people, particularly younger ones, organise their budgets.
But there is a catch:
All, or nearly all, car insurance companies charge extra for those who do not pay the full premium in advance. This is generally accepted to be about 11% of the total price, although this can vary considerably.
Also: some of the cheaper insurance companies don't offer month – to – month payments. This means that you may miss out on the best bargains.
However, it gets better!
You may be able to save a great deal of money by comparing multiple quotes, from up to 100 or more insurers, most of which offer monthly payments. Some of these will even provide easy terms for drivers with poor credit.
Getting a quote will only take you a few minutes and will place you under no obligation whatsoever, so why not get one now. It could save you a great deal of money!
