Over 80s Struggle For Cheap Car Insurance

A recent investigation into the availability for cheap car insurance for the elderly has revealed shocking, and also frankly disgusting, results. Age Concern and Help The Aged commissioned the research and found that the majority of drivers over the age of 80 could not get an insurance policy to cover them at all, with the majority over 65 having serious problems getting policies with low enough premiums to fit into their budget.

This is an absolute disgrace, especially when you realise that some of the cheap car insurance refusals for the elderly come from some of the largest insurance providers in the UK. Now that this discrimination has been revealed then there may be some changes within the cheap car insurance industry, especially given that it means some will be restricted in terms of what they can do with their lives. Everyone deserves a chance to be insured regardless of age, unless healt problems get in the way, so spread the word.

Things to Remember When Applying for Car Accident Insurance

The moment you buy a car, first thing to think about is not getting a new set of mufflers, rims or spoilers. Think first of getting insurance because that may be the best thing you can get for your car at the moment. There is no limit to benefits you get from availing of a car accident insurance early on.

You have decided to get covered by an indemnity policy; first thing to do is to look for a reputable insurance provider. Normally, a car dealer will attempt to sell you insurance, whether for a profit or not. This is also trustworthy since no self-respecting dealer will attempt to sell a bogus policy from an unreliable source. Plus, you can always assert your rights against him should things go wrong in the future. Try not to get covered from agents. Go to the source. Although agents represent car accident insurance providers, they tend to exaggerate just to get you to sign.

These are drivers in the US who have been caught driving while intoxicated or DWI, and DUI which is driving under the influence. These are also drivers with multiple accidents or tickets on their record. Even something as small as a parking ticket may have an influence on insurance premiums!
