Getting Car and Van Insurance with a Criminal Record

Car If you are one of the nine million people in the country with a criminal conviction you’ll know just how hard it can be finding affordable car insurance. A quick search online tells you that the majority of providers aren’t interested and those that are charge sky high premiums for the privilege.

At Quoteline Direct we are often asked why ex-offenders have to pay more for their car insurance, and the simple answer is that they don’t; they just need to know where to look.

Calculating insurance costs is all about calculating ‘risk’ and if you don’t pose a greater risk; you shouldn’t have to pay a higher premium. Unfortunately most insurers see things differently and flatly refuse to get involved with anyone with a criminal record.

At Quoteline Direct we understand that a criminal conviction may have absolutely no bearing on your driving ability or your financial responsibility, and we believe there’s no reason why ex-offenders should keep being punished for mistakes they may have made in the past.

As a leading broker we have negotiated some great rates with a number of providers who share the same philosophy. We’ve also got access to a number of specialist insurers who can provide competitive cover for people with motoring convictions.

If you have served your debt to society; don’t let a criminal conviction push up your premiums. For great deals on car insurance with a criminal conviction or van insurance with a criminal conviction visit Quoteline Direct; we think you’ll be surprised at how much you could save.

Remember that ex-offenders are legally obliged to declare unspent convictions or ongoing prosecutions (when asked) or risk committing fraud or invalidating their insurance cover.
