How to get cheap car insurance in Ireland? | AIG Ireland

We know you have been asking the question, we wanted to give you the answer to getting a cheap car insurance quote onlin. AIG has a simple and straight forward quote process, meaning you can get your car insurance quote in a matter of minutes.

 

What’s the secret to a lower quote on car insurance? Here are AIG’s top 5 tips:

 

1. LOSE THE NEED FOR SPEED

Slow and steady means lower odds of getting into an accident. This doesn’t mean you should crawl along, but make sure you’re following speed limits, that you slow down at curves and high pedestrian traffic areas and that you don’t let road rage get the better of you.

 

2. SPEND LESS TIME BEHIND THE WHEEL

Less time on the road has its benefits. Walking and biking is better for you and the environment and lower mileage on your car translates to a lower quote. And as common sense and statistics will tell you, less time behind the wheel equals less opportunity for an accident.

 

3. EXPERIENCE IS ESSENTIAL

Official statistics prove that driving experience counts. Older drivers are less likely to engage in risky driving like speeding and following closely behind fellow drivers. Plus, they deal with hazards and safety concerns better than those who are new to driving.

4. FOLLOW THE RULES OF THE ROAD

Points on your license can translate to a higher premium. If you’ve committed a serious traffic offense, your cover can skyrocket, and if it’s serious enough, you might have a hard time getting covered at all. Know the rules of the road and follow them.

 

5. VEHICLE TYPE AND MOTOR SIZE MATTER

AIG divides cars into groups depending on their motor size, car type, and the likely cost and frequency of repairs. If your car falls into a high insurance group, you’ll end up with higher premiums. That’s why it pays to check a car’s rating before you buy.

 

Driving in the country may not always be cheaper
