How can I save on my Ford Transit premiums?

Car insurance shouldn’t cost the Earth, so we’ve put together a list of tricks and tips for you to help keep your premiums low.

  • Pay annually rather than monthly. Whilst it may seem daunting to pay such a large sum of money in one go, by paying annually you will actually be saving yourself some extra money! Paying annually will save you an average of £47.40 a year with a Ford Transit passenger wagon, and a whopping £204.38 with a year with the Ford Transit van.
  • Make yourself a secure investment. Insurance companies like to know that they are making a secure investment, so by keeping a clean history of no claims and a good credit rating, you may be rewarded with lower premiums.
  • Be economical about your car usage. Limiting your car usage will help to keep your premiums, and mileage, down.
  • Don’t just accept your renewal quote. When it’s time for renewal, make sure that you shop around and compare some quotes.
  • Install extra safety precautions. Companies don’t like to insure risks, so the safer that your vehicle is, the lower your premiums will be. Investing in some extra safety measures may end up saving you money.
  • Avoid driving convictions. Driving convictions, or any convictions for that matter, will hike up your premiums, so try your best to avoid them.

Ford Transit facts

How safe is Ford Transit?

When the Ford Transit was tested by Euro NCAP in 2014, it was awarded a 5/5 safety rating. The Transit scored impressively for adult and child occupant safety, with scores of 84% and 90% respectively. Its safety features earned it a great score of 71% for its safety assist, however, pedestrian safety only scored 48%.

As previously mentioned, the safer that you can make your vehicle, the lower your premium is likely to be. As standard, the Ford Transit comes with a fantastic selection of safety features to keep you protected on the road.

It comes with basic safety features such as seat belt reminders and ESC, or electronic stability control. Speed assistance is also a feature in the Ford Transit, as well as an Advanced Traction Control System and Curve Control.

However, the most noteworthy safety features lie within the RSC, or roll stability control, and the Emergency Brake Assist. The RSC is designed to prevent your vehicle from rolling if you experience a collision, keeping you a lot safer. In addition, the Emergency Brake Assist can brake on your behalf or amplify your braking in the event of an emergency, helping you come to a stop quicker and hopefully avoid a crash.
