When you get a car insurance quote one of the important questions asked by insurers will be “What is your annual mileage?” If you want car insurance for low mileage motoring, you are likely to get something you didn’t bargain for – extra miles that you don’t need.
This is because when the car insurance company works out your quote, they will look at a number of factors. When it comes to the mileage, insurers consider that the more you drive the more chance you will have of being involved in an accident, so high mileage drivers are naturally a greater risk for them and this makes their car insurance more expensive.
Many motorists have cottoned on to this fact, so they tell the insurers that they are likely to do a lower amount of miles. This way, their insurance is cheaper.
And now, the car insurance companies have realised that a lot of motorists probably do more mileage each year than they say they will, so, to cover the extra risk, they add more miles when they work out the cost of the policy.
Drivers’ fibs make cover more expensive
For example, if you only use your car to drive to a local college or university you are not going to do a large amount of miles. Or if you use your car mainly to take the kids to and from school, and to do the shopping, then you are probably going to have a low annual mileage.
However, other insurers may calculate your premium based on more miles than you have told them you will drive.
