Although your cover will still be cheaper than young drivers, car insurance premiums do start to increase when you are in your seventies.

To get the best deal and beat increasing prices never accept your renewal quote, because it is unlikely to be the cheapest available.

Get the right cover for the right price

You should never choose your car insurance policy on price alone.

Make sure the policy you buy provides all the cover you need, because the wrong level of protection could cost you more in the long run.

Look at policies designed for older drivers as they can offer extra benefits like:

  • Emergency any driver cover: This means someone else can take over driving and take your car home in the event of a medical emergency

  • Get you home service: If you cannot drive your car following an accident this will cover the cost of emergency travel or accommodation up to a set limit

  • Message relay service: This will contact a friend or relative if you are involved in an accident
