Tips for insuring your family car
- Shop around for family cars - If you’re looking for a family car and want to keep your costs down, it’s worth shopping around. The car you choose will impact your insurance premium, along with several other factors.
- Name the main driver correctly - The family member who will primarily be driving the car should be named as the main driver. Naming someone falsely to lower your premium is considered fronting - a form of fraud that could invalidate your policy and make it hard to get insurance in the future.
- Tailor your policy - If several family members drive your car, it's worth considering what type of cover you all need to ensure you're protected. Check out our optional extras to see how you can tailor your policy to your family's needs.

The type of family car you buy will always depend on your own family's needs. While a hatchback or small SUV may be suitable for some families, larger families may be better off with a seven-seater.

One thing some insurers may look at is the insurance group of the car you’d like covered. Insurance groups are bandings from 1-50, which look at the level of risk and costs associated with your car. Cars placed in higher groups are usually more expensive to insure. Before you settle on a family car, it may be worth checking which insurance group it falls under and even get an insurance quote in advance to have an idea of how much you could pay.
