Some of these tips are as easy as making sure your job title is correct when you apply for insurance.
But, the largest savings are reserved for younger drivers as they have larger premiums to begin with and so have more to save.
There are still plenty of tips for older drivers who want to drive down the cost of their car insurance.
Here are Go Compare’s seven easy ways for you to potentially shave hundreds off your car insurance premiums.
1. Save £88 by using the right job title
Insurers look at your job title when you apply for a job to determine how much of a risk you might be.
Some job titles are viewed as more risky than others and can drive up your premiums so it is important to use the right job title.
Go Compare found that there was an £88 difference in your premiums if you described yourself as a chef rather than a kitchen worker.
It is still important that you are as honest as possible with your job title as if you give false information your insurance could be invalidated.
MoneySuperMarket found that students could be paying as much as £677 for their insurance because they listed themselves as unemployed rather than studying full-time.
2. Save £520 by adding a more experienced driver to your policy
Young and inexperienced drivers often have to pay the highest insurance premiums.
But Go Compare found that you could save up to £520 by adding a more experienced driver like a parent to your policy.
This is because an experienced driver will lower the risk on your policy as it won’t be just the inexperienced driver driving the car.
