Car insurance is an absolute necessity and you shouldn’t be driving around uninsured at all. Considering how many things can go wrong when it comes to your vehicle, being uninsured is really not a risk you should be taking. The main reason that car insurance is so expensive is that is generally very expensive to get a car fixed that’s been in an accident or to get it replaced if it has been written off. Therefore it makes sense that car insurance premiums would be very costly. However there are several other reasons for expensive car insurance premiums as well.
Statistics could be your friend or your worst enemy when it comes to car insurance costs. The area you reside in is calculated into a risk profile that is taken into account when you apply for car insurance. If your suburb is at high risk of hijackings and car theft, your insurance premium will automatically be higher than that of a person’s who resides in a lower risk suburb. Installing some security measures in your vehicle and on your property such as an anti-hijack system, alarm system and panic buttons could assist in keeping your insurance premium as low as possible.
It is also true that if you are under the age of 25, you will pay more for you insurance premiums than those who are your senior. Drivers under this age are more likely to claim from their insurance policies according to studies and surveys done for the purposes of calculating insurance risks.
The type of car that you own, will also have a big impact on the amount you’re going to pay for your car insurance policy. The older the vehicle, the more you will have to fork out for insurance. This is also the case with expensive vehicles. The more expensive the car, the more expensive the insurance premium. And although it might seem unfair and to some, even untrue, car insurance is usually cheaper for female drivers as they are considered a lesser risk on the road than their male counterparts.
