Paying for your insurance

There are a number of different ways to pay for your car insurance. Usually, your policy will be paid for on a yearly basis. This can be done by paying the money in a lump sum, or paying it in instalments. It is often cheaper to pay for your insurance in one payment. You can also get insurance for shorter periods of time, this is useful if you want to add someone else to your policy over a brief period. However, it will most likely be cheaper to get insurance for a year than pay for it on a monthly basis over 12 months.
