Which factors affect my Dacia Sandero insurance rate?

Along with the insurance group, there are other key factors that impact your insurance premium costs:

  • Engine type and capacity. In general, the bigger the engine, the more you will pay for your insurance. An average 30-year-old may pay £548 for the 1.2-litre Dacia Sandero 1.2 16V Access 5d, but could pay around £681 for the 1.5-litre Dacia Sandero 1.5 dCi Midnight 5d.

  • The age of your car
  • Your car’s security and any extra anti-theft precautions

How can I save on my Dacia Sandero car insurance?

When searching for car insurance, you’ll want to find the best deal for a price that’s within your budget and offers you the right level of cover. There are a few things you can try in order to save on your car insurance premiums, and we’ve listed them below.

  • Limit your car usage (where possible). Occasionally deciding to walk or get public transport, rather than using your car, can help to save on your premiums. You can also opt to car-share or choose to travel at off-peak hours which will expose yourself to less traffic, and less risk.
  • Pay annually rather than monthly. By paying annually, you will not incur any interest that you are usually subject to on monthly instalments.
  • Install extra safety precautions. The safer your car is, the less of a risk it will be for companies to insure. By adding extra safety measures, you’re quite likely to lower your premium.
  • Don’t just accept your renewal quote. It always pays to compare your options when you are due for renewal. Look at the level of cover you need and look within your budget – you may get a much cheaper quote!
