Having adequate insurance is key to providing peace of mind

Homeport very kindly allowed us to contribute some editorial about insurance for Learner Drivers. The article featured in the Summer 2015 edition of Homeport magazine. 

When young people are first learning to drive the worry of the parents mainly centres around their safety on the road. Having adequate insurance is key to providing some peace of mind. Searching the market for the correct insurance can be a daunting task, however just like serving personnel need to find cover suitable to their needs, so should the children who live with their parents on Base.

Driving on and around Base is an element of car insurance that is not often covered by “high street providers” and for a new driver learning the rules of the road, driving on Base can be equally overwhelming.

The key point would be that even though a low premium may be attractive, would the company offer the quality of service in the event that a claim had to be made? Would they understand the unique position of being attached to the military? Taking out a policy with a company that understands the military market would be extremely beneficial.

Some hints and tips to save money on insurance premiums for younger drivers:
