‘Curfew’ car insurance aids young drivers

car insurance

A new car insurance policy for drivers aged under 26 has been launched . The policy will give young motorists a discount off their premium of up to 40% if they don’t drive between 11pm and 5am.

Young drivers who want to take advantage of the discount offered by RSA Insurance through Welsh broker Motaquote must have a device installed to their car to ensure they comply with the curfew. The i-kube is a global positioning system (GPS), which monitors when the car is driven.
Protection for young drivers

According to Brake, the road safety campaigner, road traffic accidents are the number one killer of young people.

Nigel Lombard, managing director of Motaquote, said: ‘Young drivers remain in the age group with the highest proportion of insurance claims, road crashes and fatalities on our roads. As we go into the darker winter months, it is even more important to highlight these dangers.’

Which? car insurance expert Dan Moore said: ‘One in five young people drive without insurance, partly because it is so expensive. Innovative policies such as this will hopefully go some way to reducing the number of uninsured motorists in the roads, and keep more your motorists safe.’
