Sandy asks…

How much does it cost to tax and insure a car?

This is for myself. The car when I get it will be a small one. I am 25 years old and female. I live in the UK.
My driving exprance is new driver.

Administrator answers:

Tax – anywhere from £35 to £170 depending on the car

insurance – anywhere from £200 – £600 depending on car, driving experience, NCB, where you live etc

edit 1: new driver…hmm, the insurance could be up to £750-900 then. You’re best giving a few insurers a call. There is no set price. Everybody is different. My friend had the same car as me (same age, driving experience etc) but he lived in the next street to me, and his insurance was £200 more expensive than mine.

Donald asks…

Short term car insurance for foreign visitors?

Me and a few guys (UK citizens) are planning on coming to the US and driving East to West over a few months. We are thinking of buying a car and then selling it before we leave.

Is it possible to get short term car insurance for this amount of time? Keeping in mind that we are not from US also?


Administrator answers:

First of all, you may need to consider the matter of licenses. Some states will not register someone a car if they do not have a US license. Also, you will be paying through the roof for insurance as US insurance carriers have no way of verifying a non-US license, so they charge you higher premiums. If you are a younger person, you may pay a lot more. Without a US address, I think very few insurance companies would write a policy. Furthermore, even if you are able to get an insurance policy, it may only cover you while you are the driver; none of your mates would be covered to drive.

If you have auto insurance now, check to see if your insurance company offers any special coverage for traveling outside Europe. Check into getting an international license that covers you to drive in other countries. You may need to fill out some forms or a test (Americans have to if they wish to drive in UK). A car rental may be another option as usually they are later model cars and more dependable. You can also take out insurance with the rental car agency. Most airports have rental car companies there. You may want to inquire of them ahead of time.

William asks…

How much will my car insurance be as a new driver?

I’m learning to drive as a necessity for a new job, but I am struggling to get a reliable estimate of the insurance premium I should expect once I have a car. I know that nobody will be able to give me a precise figure as it depends on so many variables, but I wondered if anyone would know what to put into a quote generator to get something accurate? I’m female, in the UK, 27 years old and will need a cheap and cheerful 5 door hatchback. Unfortunately I don’t know enough about engine sizes and that sort of thing to know if I’m answering the questions on the form realistically. I tried compare the market and got a cheapest quote of £3,700 per annum – does this sound right? I know it will be expensive but even so that seems very high for a 1999 Vauxhall Corsa! (the car I used to get the quote).

I do realise this is a very subjective question but any advice is greatly appreciated – at the moment it is looking like I won’t be able to take up a dream job offer as all I will be doing is working to pay for a car that I oly got in order to take the job :(
