Which factors affect my Skoda Fabia insurance rate?
Along with your car’s insurance group, these three factors have the biggest impact on the cost of your insurance:
- Engine type and capacity. The larger your engine, the more you’re likely to pay for insurance. For example, an average 30-year-old may pay £582 for the 1-litre Skoda Fabia 1.0 MPI (60bhp) S 5d, but could pay around £807 for the 2.2-litre Skoda Fabia i-DTEC SE 5d.
- Driver location. Insurers factor in the likelihood that your car will be stolen or involved in an accident when calculating your insurance, and your location has a big impact on this. As an example, a 30-year-old in central London will pay £846 for insurance for a Skoda Fabia 1.2 TSI Colour Edition 5d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £711.
- Driver age. Like location, the age of the driver plays a huge role in determining the cost of your insurance premium. The average 20-year-old driver in London could pay £1,243 for the Skoda Fabia 1.0 MPI SE L 5d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £651.
However, there are a lot of other factors that can also impact the price of your premiums. These include:
- Your marital status
- Your credit history and job
- Your car’s safety rating, security and anti-theft precautions
- Likelihood of theft
- The model and age of your car
- Your driving activity
- Your driving history
- No claims discount
How can I save on my Skoda Fabia premiums?
Depending on your individual circumstances, car insurance can come at a hefty cost. If you add this to additional costs such as car tax, petrol, MOTs, servicing and maintenance, it can cost a lot to be on the road.
Thankfully, there are a few things you can try to reduce your car insurance premium for your Skoda Fabia, and we’ve listed them below:
- Avoid any driving convictions. It may sound obvious, but having convictions on your record will make your premium more expensive.
- Be economical about your car usage. You could save money on your insurance by being more sparing with your car usage. Opting for public transport or walking when you can will help keep your mileage, and premiums, lower.
- Pay annually rather than monthly. By paying annually, you could save £50.60 on average a year!
- Install extra safety precautions. The safer you make your car, the better your premium will be. By investing in extra safety features, your vehicle will be more secure and less of a risk to insure.
- Don’t just accept your renewal quote. When it’s time for renewal, make sure you shop around – you’ll be surprised at how much you could save by assessing your options.
Skoda Fabias are a popular vehicle and with most falling into an insurance group from 1 – 18, you should be able to find a good level of comprehensive cover without breaking the bank.
However, don’t forget that there are numerous factors that can affect your insurance premiums such as your age, your location, your driving history and the insurer you select.
