In this post we are going to look at the impact of fitting winter equipment to your vehicle and if it could affect your motor insurance. Many drivers are unsure of their insurance company’s policy.

We have the obtained the information for you direct from the Association of British Insurers.

Over 90% of motor insurers have signed up to the commitment not to increase premiums for those who fit winter equipment to their vehicles. We feel that this is a good stance to be taken and helps you, the motorist, maintain the safety of your vehicle for the winter period.

Some motor insurers do require you to contact them to check, but the advice as stated on the ABI website is; ‘often motor insurers will not charge an additional premium when their insured customers use winter tyres, provided that they meet, and are fitted in accordance with, the vehicle manufacturers’ specifications and are in a roadworthy condition’

Please click on the link below to access the full list of insurers who have committed to the scheme.
