Which factors affect my Volkswagen Fox insurance rate?

Along with the insurance group your car appears in, there are a number of key factors that have a large impact on your insurance premium costs:

  • Engine type and capacity. The bigger the engine within your vehicle, the more you’re likely to pay to insure it. For example, it may cost £556 for insurance for a Volkswagen fox 1.2 3d, while you may pay £607 for a Volkswagen Fox 1.4 Urban Fox 3d.
  • Driver location. Insurers will assess the likelihood of your car being stolen or damaged based on where you live. This will affect the size of your premium. For example, a 30-year-old in central London may pay £641 for insurance for a Volkswagen fox 1.2 60bhp 3d, while the same 30-year-old in Newcastle may only pay £556. This £85 difference between London and Newcastle because Londoners are statistically more likely to make a claim on their car insurance.
  • Driver age. The youngest drivers will pay the most for insurance. The average 20-year-old driver in London may pay £1,115 for the Volkswagen fox 1.2 Urban Fox 3d, while the average 40-year-old Londoner will only pay £584. The average 20-year-old will have to pay almost double because motorists of this age are far more likely to make a claim.

Other factors that influence the cost of your insurance include:

  • Your no-claims discount
  • Your driving history and activity
  • Your annual mileage
  • 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
  • Your marital status

How can I save on my Volkswagen Fox premiums?

When searching for car insurance, it’s worth searching for the best possible deal. Here are some ideas you can try to lower the cost of your premiums.

  • Limit your car usage (where possible). By occasionally deciding to walk or get public transport, rather than using your car, you can reduce your annual mileage which will help you to save on your premiums.
  • Pay annually rather than monthly. It might be scary to part with a large sum of money in one go, but by paying annually you will eliminate the possibility of paying interest on monthly repayments.
  • Install extra safety precautions. This makes your car less of a risk to insure, allowing insurers to offer your lower quotes.
  • Shop around for the best deal. Don’t just settle for the renewal price given to you – there may be cheaper options out there!
