Drivers who’ve owned their cars for four years or more cause fewer accidents

Motorists who have owned their cars for four or more years are a much lower insurance risk. So says Adrian Flux Insurance Services, which is offering to undercut any cover quote for drivers who fall into that category and who haven’t made a claim during the past 12 months.

The company says it’s seen a big drop in claims from drivers who keep hold of their cars. General manager Gerry Bucke explained: “Our records show a lot of accidents happen within the first year of owning a car and fall away significantly after the fourth year.

“It’s partly down to experience, and it probably says a lot about the more steady type of people who don’t chop and change their vehicles all the time.”

The offer is only available until the end of the month.
