The Reliant car company was set up in the 1930’s on the belief that the days of lightweight three-wheelers were far from over. The company went on to produce the first Reliant which enjoyed some additional success because it was originally exempt from the equivalent of today’s Vehicle Excise Duty.
The company went on to build a variety of cars, from economy-based three-wheelers like the Regal or Rialto, to the sportier Scimitar and Sabre. These cars may look very different to more modern cars, but insurance companies will calculate insurance premiums based on a range of factors, which includes value, power and potential repair cost.
- With many Reliants now considered classic cars, you may be able to get tailored cover or reduced premiums with a classic car insurance policy
- Replacement Reliant parts may be difficult and expensive to find, which could push insurance premiums up
- On the plus side, all pre-1973 cars are exempt from road tax, which could save you money if yours was built before then
