Car insurance buyers guide

Why do you need it, what do you need and what should you look out for? Sit back, relax and let Elephant help you decide.

What are car insurance groups?

To make insurance fairer and easier to compare, all insurance companies use the same car insurance groups to work out the premiums for different cars.

Which group a car goes into is based not just on its type (sports car or estate, for example), but its engine size and power, how much it costs to buy and repair, how safe it is and how secure they are from theft.

To search for which group your car (or a car you're thinking of buying) is in, go to the Association of British Insurer's website, here.
