Car Insurance

    Recommended Posts

    Guest andylynnchriskirst

    Hello, I will need a car when we get to Adelaide. Have been looking on the internet for some ideas on prices. However, I have no idea how much insurance would cost.

    I'm 19, been driving 2 years, no accidents, and would be looking for a small economical car.

    I've also heard that they don't really have an MOT or equivalent?

     

    Just would like to get some ideas of the costs of running a car! :)

    Any help would be much appreciated!

     

    Thank you,

     

    Chris.

    Bring over proof of your past 2 years insurances, might not make any difference though, but fully comp will be in the range of a couple of thousand, the youth of today get stung, no matter about the car size etc etc, try out

     

    aami.com.au or sgic.com.au or raa.com.au

     

    petrol this morning is around $1.48 a litre, rego(road tax) around $550, no mot is req, 6 month check/oil change $120

    Thanks stevo for the quick response! Sounds very similar to in England then! Is there anything that can help bringing down the insurance for the under 25's?

    Thank you for the sites as well :smile:.

    Like most insurance companies you can accept a higher excess, or raise the age of other drivers (i.e. if you say no-one else will drive the car if they're under 40 etc...)

     

    Insurance companies like car ports, locked garages etc... If you're near one where it could "usually" be parked (cough-cough).

     

    Proof of no-claims from the UK will be honoured here too, well it is with Virgin Money anyway.

     

    You can usually get that proof from your existing UK insurer - but only AFTER you've ended your insurance with them - and it can take a few weeks to materialise - so get them to send it to someone in the UK with a scanner, they can then email it to you. I think Virgin wanted this within 2 weeks of my policy starting, but I'm not sure.

     

    Finally, I'm not sure if you can get a small economical car in South Australia....... The legal minimum seems to be at least a 3.0 V6 generating no less than 55dB total loudness from each exhaust.
