How can I save on my Ford Edge premiums?
Insurance is a must, but that doesn’t mean you should pay through the nose for it. For affordable premiums, we’ve devised a list of tips for you to try.
- Pay annually rather than monthly. By paying annually, you could save an average of £97.43 a year.
- Make yourself a secure investment. The more you appeal to your provider, the more likely it is that they will reward you with lower premiums. You can achieve this by keeping a clean history of no claims and a good credit rating.
- Be economical about your car usage. The less you use your car, the lower your mileage will be. The lower your mileage is, the lower your premiums may become. Simple!
- Don’t just accept your renewal quote. The renewal quote that you’re given isn’t always the best option out there. When it’s time for renewal, make sure you shop around before you commit.
- Install extra safety precautions. Providers don’t like to insure risks. By investing in some extra safety and security measures, you may find your premiums lower.
- Avoid driving convictions. Convictions of any kind will increase the cost of your premiums.

How safe is Ford Edge?
When tested by Euro NCAP in 2016, the Ford Edge was awarded a 5/5 safety rating. It scored an impressive 85% for its adult occupant safety and 76% for its child occupant safety, as well as its safety features meriting a score of 89% for its safety assist functions.
As standard, the Ford Edge comes with many safety features in addition to the basics such as seat belt reminders and airbags. The AEB Pedestrian aims to reduce your speed and limit the risk to pedestrians, if a collision is about to occur. It can recognise an unexpected obstacle in front of you, and brake on your behalf.
The AEB City and AEB Inter-urban work to prevent low speed and rear-ending collisions by monitoring the distance between your car and the vehicle in front, braking on your behalf when the distance becomes too short and you’re about to crash.
The safer that you can make your vehicle, the lower your premiums are likely to be. You can add some extra safety measures – for details about optional extras, visit the Ford website or contact a Ford dealership.
