I'm Glad I Don't Pay The Average Car Insurance Amount Of £746!

I have fully comprehensive insurance on my Ford Focus (okay it is 10 years old), and pay around £350 per year.

That seems a high average but I guess the boy racers help achieve that Wink

I've had my 1998 S-reg car since new, still going.
I just turned 21 when I got it, and so luckily I qualified for free insurance for the first year (had to be 21 or over).
I think the most I had to pay for car insurance was the following year (around £500-ish), but at least I had a year's no claims by that point.

Alex - I think you've got a good deal, the insurance companies tend to hammer anyone under 25.
