Insurers look at loads of things to work out your insurance price, including your age, job, where you live and your car. They also look at the cost of repair, how much other people with your details crash and how much compensation for injuries and damage cost.
The cost of repairing or replacing your car is only one of the factors that goes into calculating your insurance price. Repairs to other cars or property you damage are also taken into consideration but that’s not what makes crashes so costly.
The true cost of a crash is when people are hurt. Care for someone who’s seriously injured can cost millions – that’s what we have insurance for. It protects us and anyone we hurt against the massive long-term cost.
