AA Car Insurance has released the details of a survey in which they've announced that adding another driver to your insurance policy could reduce your motor insurance by up to 20%.
As part of the survey, which included the answers of over 3,000 Irish motorists, 27.74% of respondents stated that they were “very likely” to add another driver to their policy in the future, with an additional 9.67% of those surveyed stated they were “somewhat likely” to do so.
Checking out this method is a very simple way of slashing a huge sum from your insurance costs, so says Director of Consumer Affairs at the AA, Conor Faughnan.
“When it comes to steps you can take to help reduce the cost of motor insurance, adding another driver to your policy is a step that many Irish motorists overlook.”
Faughnan goes onto explain that although the person you're adding as a named driver doesn't have to be a romantic partner - adding someone that you're in a committed relationship with boasts great benefits too.
“Adding a partner or someone who you live and are in a committed relationship with, irrespective of their gender or whether or not you're actually married, to your policy will result in the greatest discount as those in committed relationships fall into a lower risk category than those who are not when it comes to calculating premiums.''
