This question worries many people considering car finance - after all, you have to plan your monthly payments somehow. At Carplus, we know the answer to this question.

The answer is that a car loan can include insurance, but only if you put it in the contract. So negotiate with your car finance broker to have insurance counted in your payments - and you're good to go!

The cost of car finance including insurance

Of course, if you choose to finance a car with insurance, your monthly payment will be higher. There are many offers on the market to sell cars with free insurance. But they only apply to new vehicles and may not be available, especially if you have a bad credit history or are part of a high-risk group.

Products with add-ons

There are a variety of add-ons available for your loan agreement. For example, car finance including insurance, may also imply the cost of maintaining your car and paying road tax.

Any financial deal will depend on the options you include in it. So plan your monthly payments and evaluate your options depending on what features you want to add to the contract.

Financing and insurance for first-time drivers

Of course, after getting their driver's license, young drivers immediately want to buy their first car! But unfortunately, young drivers will be disappointed. For a young person to finance a car with insurance is going to be a challenge, as it is costly.

Many car finance companies consider drivers between the ages of 18 and 24 to be high risk. This causes insurance premiums to become much higher than for regular drivers. Also, young people have a tiny credit history - and that, too, affects the higher interest rate because of the higher risk of the loan.

However, there are products specifically designed for young drivers. They usually include the cost of the car itself, the interest, and insurance, all of which sum up to quite an affordable payment.
