Driving after the age of 70 can open many doors for retirees and help pensioners to enjoy their independence for longer.
Choosing the best car insurance for over 70s will become important as you reach this milestone, to ensure your individual needs are met. Age Co Car Insurance is specifically designed for mature drivers, with policies that can be enhanced with optional extras to give you the cover you need.
Age Co Car Insurance welcomes experienced drivers of all ages, and we have set no upper age limit on Age Co Car Insurance policies. As long as you are deemed safe to drive by the DVLA and medical practitioners you can get a quote today.
Not necessarily. While years of experience and a lengthy no-claims period could help get you a lower cost policy, you will still be subject to the same considerations you always have; including the type of car you drive and your postcode.
One of the key reasons that you must start renewing your driving licence every three years from the age of 70 is to ensure that your medical information is up-to-date and being assessed correctly. You must always report medical conditions that could affect your driving to the DVLA.
As well as this, you must also inform your car insurance provider of any changes to your medical health, or risk your policy becoming invalid. The price of your insurance and the options available to you might be impacted by certain conditions, but you could risk serious fines and/or prosecution if you fail to inform the right people.
You should also make the most of free NHS eye tests for over 60 year olds, to ensure that your eyesight meets the legal requirements for driving. If you are prescribed glasses, you must wear them when driving. If you do not it could invalidate your insurance policy.
Age Co Car Insurance comes with Protected No Claims Discount as standard, a guaranteed Courtesy Car, no admin fees and a ‘Get you home service’ after an accident – up to £250. Features such as a 24-hour accident helpline and a UK-based call centre are included. Age Co Car Insurance has continued to receive the highest possible Star Rating from Defaqto, since 2014.
Age Co Car Insurance for older drivers is designed specifically with the over 50s in mind.
Plus, with a whole range of added benefits and optional extras available, you can choose the cover that’s right for you, from an award-winning service provider.†
