i am de to have out first aupair arrive and i am really really struggling to find anyone to insure her on a little 1.1ltr car. She is 20 , from france with a full licence. Has been driving for 2 years. I knew it wouldnt be cheap but 4K from Admiral and 1700 from Tesco was rather toppy ! Any suggestion? These are obv with me as main driver and her as a named policy on the car. I am using my no claims on my usual vehicle and we are buying the litlle 1.1ltr car as an extra car - is this poss why ? I have a clean licence for over 15 years.
I'm afraid you need someone older - Our 23 year old au pair from France was an extra £250 for a year, we found Admiral the cheapest.
Our previous au pair was a 22 year old from Italy and that was an extra £350. We stipulate over 22 and with 4 years driving experience in our au pair world ads. After speaking to admiral, that seemed to be when the premium went down significantly. Although, I friend of mine struggled to get a decent policy for her non-EU au pair.
A neighbour of ours has a 19 year old au pair and insures through Direct Line quite cheaply on a small Toyota where she is named driver - although we were refused insurance by them for our au pair on our tank of a Volvo.
I would second the black box idea. When I first got my own licence a few years ago I was able cut the annual premium by several thousand pounds by having one installed. I used insurethebox and had no problems with them.
Can anyone advice which car would you recommend for the aupair? Budget is around £1000 only. with my current 10+ years old Honda Sports car Admiral quoted £80/month for my 23yo aupair with 10 months old driving license... I cannot change the aupair but I can change the car!
Try Tesco Value insurance (if it still exists - not on comparison websites I remember that). It is a completely different company from Tesco Insurance and was the cheapest option by far when we had a younger au pair.
