How can I save on my Land Rover insurance?
The price you pay for car insurance will depend on many factors, but there are a few things you can do to try and bring the cost down:
- Estimate your mileage accurately
- Increase your car's security
- Add a named driver
- Avoid auto-renewal and shop around
- Increase your voluntary excess
- Pay annually rather than monthly
- Build up your no-claims bonus (NCB)
Estimate your mileage accurately. Typically, the more miles you drive, the more you pay. Accurately estimating your mileage will mean you're only paying for the miles you actually drive. Our customers drive 6,669 miles per year on average2. If you don't drive many miles, you might benefit from a pay-as-you-go policy.
Increase your car's security with features like steering wheel locks, alarms and immobilisers. These make it more difficult for thieves to steal your car. Parking in a secure, well-lit location can also deter thieves.
Add a named driver with a good driving history. Always be honest about who the main driver is though. Otherwise you could be 'fronting', which is illegal.
Avoid auto-renewal and shop around. Most insurers will automatically renew your policy each year, but you don't have to accept the price they offer. Comparing quotes is one of the best ways to save money, so shop around to make sure you're getting the best price for your cover. The best time to buy your policy is 26 days2 before your renewal date.
Increase your voluntary excess. The more you're able to pay towards claims, the lower your insurance price could be. Just make sure you set it at a level that you could afford. But don't forget to consider any compulsory excess as you'll need to pay this too.
Pay annually rather than monthly and you could save up to 16%2 on your Land Rover insurance. This is because insurance companies charge interest and admin fees when you pay monthly.
Build up your no-claims bonus. Every year that you don't make a car insurance claim, you get a year added to your no-claims bonus (NCB). Insurers will offer discounts for each year of NCB you have, so the bigger your NCB, the bigger your discounts could be.

Land Rover history and facts
Land Rover hit the roads in 1948 as part of the Rover Company’s arsenal of vehicles. The car was forged straight after the Second World War from aluminium, due to a shortage of steel. It was painted in a shade of green that came from a fighter plane factory. In 1951, the company was granted a Royal Warrant by King George VI.
Land Rover incorporated the Range Rover line in 1970, going on to produce many top-of-class models like the Sport and Velar. Range Rovers are a favourite of many, including the Royal Family, and have frequently appeared in TV programmes and blockbuster films.
The Land Rover brand became its own company, Land Rover Ltd, in 1978, before ownership was passed to Ford and then BMW. Since 1998, it's been owned by Jaguar Land Rover, a subsidiary of Tata Motors of India.
Today, Land Rovers and Range Rovers are mainly manufactured in the UK at the company’s Solihull and Halewood plants. Vehicles are also built at sites in Slovakia, China, Brazil and India.
Land Rover has been vocal about its support of moving towards green energy. It currently offers mild (MHEV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) models across its ranges. An all-electric Range Rover is expected to be available for pre-order in late 2023. It plans to achieve net zero emissions across its cars, supply chain and operations by 2039.
