When it comes to renewing your car insurance policy it can be difficult to find an affordable quote.It can become especially frustrating when you know that you don’t drive nearly as many miles as a lot of other motorists and you make a keen effort to be safer and more responsible than many other road users.

If this is the case, you may be able to make significant savings with low-mileage car insurance from insurethebox. The clever telematics device, which we call the in-tele-box, monitors details such as the distances the car travels and how the vehicle is driven, and consequently provides an informed renewal quote based on how safe a motorist is on the road.

Driving safely with young children

In order to receive the best possible renewal quote, and to boost your chances of earning Bonus Miles each month, it is vital that you abide by the rules of the road and drive as safely as possible.
However, if for any reason you need to travel with young children, you may find that they distract you on the road.

As children have had so little life experience, it is difficult for them to understand the attention and focus required to drive a car, and if they become bored and restless, they may begin to fight for your attention. If a driver takes their eyes off the road for even a second, they may miss something vital and find themselves involved an accident, so it is incredibly important that motorists with young children are prepared.

In some cases, for example when a child desperately needs to go to the toilet, or they are very hungry, the driver may be better off to stop the vehicle in a rest area, or another suitable place, where they can resolve any problems and wait for a child to settle down again.

When planning for a journey which you know is likely to last a long period of time, it is a good idea to provide young children with entertainment which will keep them busy for a lot of, if not all, of the drive.

Travel games, hand-held games consoles or books are excellent options to keep children occupied, and if they are prone to travel sickness, audio books may be able to keep them entertained without making them feel more ill – in some cases, the distraction may even take their mind off feeling sick.

By keeping children busy and maintaining your focus on the road, you are more likely to drive safely and increase your chances of finding cheaper car insurance.
