A Question of Cost

To begin with, imported car insurance tends to have a higher price than insurance for conventional, UK-sold cars.

These expensive premiums reflect the fact that sourcing spare parts can be harder and more expensive, meaning that if you need to make a claim, the repair work will be more expensive.

They also reflect the difference in build specification and other factors; notably, left-hand-drive vehicles can be more expensive as there’s an increased risk of accident until you get used to the new position.

Cutting Your Costs

There are two types of imported car, known as parallel imports and grey imports.

Parallel imports are manufactured within the EU and so must be built to the same standards as UK vehicles, meaning that when you compare import car insurance policies, parallel imports tend to be more affordable than grey imports.

You’ll also find that with a grey import – typically a Japanese vehicle – your insurance firm is likely to ask you to undergo the Single Vehicle Approval tests before you can legally drive the vehicle on UK roads.

It’s very important to remember that looking for the cheapest available policy isn’t necessarily a good idea; you still need to be sure that the policy you take out provides the cover that you want.

Ask the following questions
Will the import car insurance provider be able to meet your individual requirements?
Do they have extensive expertise on the imported car insurance that you want to insure?
These are just of the questions you have to ask your self prior to entrusting the insurance of your imported car to any provider. Attempt to shop around and discover the provider that could give you a great deal.

What is car insurance?

Having car insurance ensures you are covered financially if the worst were to happen to your car. This could be damage from an accident, theft, vandalisation and fire damage. It means you won't have to dig into your own pocket to pay for potentially huge repair or replacement costs.

Car insurance is a legal requirement for cars driving on public roads. You will be heavily penalised if you are found to be driving without insurance. The minimum level of cover you must legally have is third-party car insurance. This would cover the damage to another person's car, for example in a collision accident, but provides limited cover for your own vehicle.
