I use to own a car when I was living in Singapore. It was a nice Hyundai Elantra 1.6cc. It cost me SGD80,000 back in 1994. I can’t remember how much I paid for the road tax yearly but I do remember the car insurance was a killer. Even though I was an office worker that did not use the car that often, my car insurance was still high. The fact that it was my first car and I did not have any “Non-Claim Bonus” (NCB) also did not help. Believe me, I looked everywhere for the best car insurance quotes available and I still ended up paying a bomb.
One thing that would have helped while I was looking for car insurance quotes would have been this site called Car Insurance Rate dot com. What the sites does is, it gives quotes for any kind of car anywhere from multiple insurance companies. So you need not call up the different companies and speak to a ton of different people to get the quote that you need!
The sites also has fantastic articles that relates to car insurance rates like which cars are the easiest and the hardest to get insurance for. You can also find out from the site which cars get stolen more each year so that you can avoid buying these cars or get more insurance for them!
Hm.. I’m definitely getting Azwaj to visit this site before he renews his car insurance this year.
