Best Insurance Companies for Young UK Drivers
Young drivers are considered a higher risk than older drivers because they don't have experience on the road. This really leaves you in a bit of a catch; how can you possibly gain driving experience if no one will insure you? You'll have to pay the premiums and wait a few years until you're considered a "normal" driver, realistically. Luckily, a few companies are aware of this and can offer you a cheaper deal even if you're a young driver. Here's a list of the best insurance companies for young drivers and the best policies by other companies:
Endsleigh offers a range of insurance policies from car to landlord insurance. They offer a great package for young drivers, allowing new drivers to start claiming bonus points from the day they insure. Insurance can also be bought on a short term basis (even in another country) and third party fire/theft insurance can also be bought on the scheme. Endseligh is the only insurer recommended by the NUS at the moment, which earns them top place on the list of best insurance companies for young drivers.
