Factors that may affect Lotus Elise insurance rates
When it comes to finding the right insurance policy for your classic Lotus Elise, there are several factors that can affect your insurance rates.
Classic car insurance is typically cheaper than 'normal' car insurance primarily due to classic car owners using their beloved vehicles less often than a daily commuter.
If your car is 15 years or older and has a market value of over £15,000, you may want to consider taking out classic car insurance policy rather than standard car insurance.
Factors that may affect your insurance rate/cost
- Driving record
- Age of your car
