Peterborough Car Insurance

Located in Cambridgeshire the cathedral city of Peterborough is the ‘Gateway to the Fens’–in the past it was known for its manufacturing industry, but today most jobs tend to be focussed within the Financial Services sector.

There is a lot going on in Peterborough throughout the year, one of the highlights is the East of England Show, which showcases the best in British food and farming–promoting the support of agricultural and rural life. If you find yourself parking in a field for the event it might be a good idea to keep some rope in your boot. That way if the weather takes a turn for the worse and you get stuck in the mud you can be pulled out by another car.

Peterborough is also a major transport hub, with the Great North Road cutting right through the city. Due to Peterborough’s good transport links it’s not uncommon for people who live there to commute to other cities for work. If you find yourself clocking up a fair few miles on your daily commute your car insurance could cost more. This can be due to the increased risk of you having an accident as you’re on the road a lot more.


Does car insurance in Peterborough cost more when compared with the rest of the UK?

Car insurance can vary depending on where you live and this can be due to a variety of factors–your area could be prone to flooding, or you live in a densely populated city with more cars on the road, which in turn means there is a greater chance of you having an accident. It’s hard to definitively say if car insurance in Peterborough is cheaper or more expensive when compared with the rest of the UK, as the quote takes into account a lot of individual details that are unique to you. Age for example can be a big factor on what you pay, drivers who are aged 60 tend to get cheaper quotes than those who are 18. The type of car you drive can also increase what you’re quoted. A 4x4 would typically cost more to insure than a smaller car due to the size of the engine and power amongst many other factors.


I commute to work, how can I save on my car insurance?

If you commute every day to work, your mileage is likely to be high and this could increase what you pay for your car insurance. However, car insurance quotes use lots of information in their calculations, and mileage is just one of them. So you could potentially reduce what you pay if your car scores well in other quote criteria. We’ve listed some ways you could reduce your chances of making a claim and potentially lower the price of your car insurance policy.

  • Park in a garage or driveway overnight instead of on the road outside your house–this could reduce your quote because the risk of accidental damage and theft is lowered.
  • Be a careful and considerate driver–this may sound obvious, but if you never make a claim you’ll build up a substantial No Claim Discount, which can reduce the amount of money you have to part with for your car insurance policy.
