The Skoda Octavia is a reliable family car that has been produced by the Czech manufacturer since 1996. It’s Skoda best-selling vehicle of all time, as many motorists consider the vehicle to provide great value for money. In this guide, you’ll learn the key facts of insuring a Skoda Octavia.

Skoda Octavia insurance groups and cost by driver’s age

Skoda Octavia models range from insurance groups 12 to 29, so although the cost of your car insurance falls on the cheaper end of the scale, the difference in price between insurance groups might vary quite a bit. Factors such as your car’s engine size and performance, your car’s safety features and the market value all play a part in determining which insurance group the specific model is placed.

For example, a 30-year-old driver in an average postcode could pay around £756 for cover on a Skoda Octavia 1.2 TSI S 5d (insurance group 13) or around £816 for a Skoda Octavia 2.0 TDI CR Elegance 5d, which falls in insurance group 20.

Average insurance cost for a Skoda Octavia

To provide you with an idea of how much it may cost you to insure your Skoda Octavia, we ran several quotes to find an average figure. Based on our results, on average, you could insure your Skoda Octavia with a comprehensive policy for the monthly price of £83.41, or an annual sum of £912.23.

Average cost of insurance for a Skoda Octavia by location

The table above shows the average cost of Skoda Octavia insurance based on insurance groups and driver age. However, numerous other factors affect the cost of your car insurance – one of the biggest being your address.

To show how much your location can impact your premium, here are some average quotes for a 30-year-old living in three different locations. The quotes are for a Skoda Octavia SE L 1.5 TSI 150PS ACT 5d.

  • Expensive: £968 (London SE1)
  • Average: £807 (Newcastle NE1)
  • Cheap: £597 (Galashiels TD1)

Which factors affect my Skoda Octavia insurance rate?

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

  • Engine type and capacity. As a general rule of thumb, the bigger the size of the engine, the more it will cost to insure. An average 30-year-old may pay £756 for the 1.2-litre Skoda Octavia 1.2 TSI S 5d, but could pay around £822 for the 2.0-litre Skoda Octavia 2.0 TDI CR SE 5d. In this example, it’s an extra £66 to insure a vehicle that is 0.8l bigger in engine size.
  • Driver location. Where you live helps determine the level of risk that your car may be stolen or you’ll be involved in an accident, and this affects the cost of insurance. For example, a 30-year-old in central London may pay £879 for insurance for a Skoda Octavia SE Technology 1.0 TSI 115PS DSG auto 5d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £743. In this example, the driver who lives in a London post code is quoted an extra £136 due to the area being deemed a higher risk.
  • Driver age. The younger you are, the more risk you represent to insurers, and the more you’re likely to pay for insurance. The average 20-year-old driver in London may pay £1,588 for the Skoda Octavia 1.6 TDI CR Black Edition 5d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £832.

Other factors that influence the cost of your insurance include the following:

  • Your marital status
  • Your credit history and job
  • Your car’s safety rating score
  • The model of your car
  • The age of your car
  • Your car’s security and any extra anti-theft precautions
  • Annual miles driven
  • Your driving history and activity
  • No claims discount
