Third Party, also known as Third Party Only (TPO), is the lowest level of available motor insurance cover that meets legal requirements for driving. It is also the cheapest available option. For some young drivers, given the expense of their premiums and available funds, this may be a choice they need to consider.
However, bear in mind that it only covers the other driver & vehicle, or pedestrian, in case of an accident. Any damage to your own vehicle is not covered.
This level of cover is one step up from TPO. Again, it covers the other party in case of an accident, but not any repairs to the insured, if a collision should occur.
In addition, it covers the insured vehicle, but only in cases where the car is stolen or set on fire.
Often referred to as "fully comp", this level of cover ensures that the insured vehicle is covered for any claims by third parties for accident or injury, but, crucially, for any damage to the insured vehicle itself.
Comprehensive cover, like many insurance policies, is subject to an excess, or an initial amount, usually several hundred pounds, to be covered first by the policy holder, from their own pocket.
If you want to save money on your car insurance as a young driver, then you're in the right place. You need to compare the major providers to get the cheapest deals.
Using a cashback like Quidco will allow you to earn money back on your insurance, which could be a considerable amount, as a young driver.
Don't just let your insurance renew each year, as some insurers may increase your premium. Instead, shop around each year to ensure you're getting the best deals.
A black box, also known as 'telematics' is a device that can be fitted to your vehicle to ensure it is being driven safely and responsibly. If you're a younger driver, some insurance providers are willing to offer lower premiums in exchange for monitoring your driving.
If at all possible, paying in full each year will save on your insurance premium. This is because paying in monthly instalments involve taking out a credit agreement, and paying interest, which will hike your premium overall.
Young drivers can face a real battle to get a good deal on their motor insurance. That's why it's vital to compare quotes for the best possible deal, and get cashback if you can.

Young drivers are statistically more likely to be involved in road traffic accidents than drivers in other age groups. Driver under 25 make up 5% of all drivers, but they account for 18% of people seriously injured in collisions on the road.
A black box is a monitoring device that observers how carefully and safely a motor vehicle is being driven. It can take the form of an actual box, a plug-in device, or an app to be downloaded onto your smartphone.
It uses GPS to measure your speed, braking, mileage, and the time of day you use the vehicle (more accidents tend to happen at night). It passes this information to your insurer, allowing them to use it to calculate the level risk and price your insurance accordingly.
Higher risk drivers are typically under 25, but this does not mean your insurance will suddenly go down after this age.
The best thing you can do is buy a vehicle in a low insurance group and build up your No Claims Bonus, and therefore the number of years of safe driving, to demonstrate to insurers that you are a low risk.
You can add a security device to your vehicle, and mention this when getting a quote, as it can lower your risk. You could also get a dashcam fitted as some insurers will reward drivers who choose to do this with lower premiums.
