It may surprise you to know, given that I sometimes seem rather…scattered…that I can actually drive. I passed my test FIRST TIME when I was just 18 and my first car was a little metallic red Fiat Cinquecento who I called Ruby. I loved that car, she was £795 and 7 years old when I bought her and I paid another £700 to be insured on her on a provisional licence, which back then was megabucks to me!
I’ve had various cars over the years and I adore driving, but we haven’t actually had a car at all for the past two years after our last one gave up the ghost. We recently saved up some money and are looking to buy a little second hand motor, choosing to opt for a Mercedes A-Class for the safety and quality build that those Germans always seem to offer. Then comes the issue of car insurance. I spent a while looking into how much our insurance would cost and found the process so laborious, going from one site to the next and entering all of my details.
Then I remembered all of those TV adverts about websites that compare car insurance and because they’re such a well-known family brand, I opted to use the Tesco Compare website. Any time I shop for car insurance, Tesco Insurance tends to come out as the cheapest, even in comparison to all of those ‘women driver’ insurers, but with their comparing service you can compare quotes from all of the major insurance providers at the same time.
It’s a completely free service and there’s no obligation to buy anything, but for a busy working Mum, the time I saved by using Tesco Compare was invaluable to me and my family. Once we’ve purchased our new car, which will probably be after Christmas, I’ll definitely be using Tesco Compare to find the cheapest quote I can and let’s face it, aren’t we all looking to save a bit of money after the expensive Christmas period?
All I will say is this, even if you’ve been with your insurer for a while, it can’t hurt to get a new quote just to make sure you’re saving as much money as you possibly can and Tesco Compare will make the process as quick and painless as it can possibly be!
