How can I save on my Mazda car insurance?
Estimate your mileage accurately. The more miles you drive per year, the more you'll pay for car insurance. Accurately estimating your mileage will mean you're not paying for miles you don't drive. On average, our customers drive 6,621 miles per year3. A pay-as-you-go policy may be beneficial if you don't drive many miles.
Avoid auto-renewal and shop around. You don't have to accept the renewal price your insurer offers. Shopping around may mean you get a better deal. Comparing quotes is the easiest way to see if you're getting the best price for your cover.
Add a named driver with a good driving history. This can be useful for young drivers who face higher prices due to lack of experience. However, you should be truthful about who the main driver is. If you mislead your insurance company, this is known as 'fronting', which is illegal.
Increase your voluntary excess. The higher you set your excess, the less your insurance could cost. However, you should set it at a level you can afford. The most popular excess amount with our customers is £2503.
Pay annually rather than monthly and you could save 16% on your insurance3. This is because insurance companies add interest when you pay monthly, increasing your overall price.
Increase your car's security. Check that your car has an immobiliser installed. If it was manufactured after 1997, it should. Other ways to reduce the risk of your car being stolen are by using trackers, steering wheel locks and parking in a secure garage.

The history of Mazda
While Mazda is mostly known for its iconic MX-5 roadster, its roots stretch back to 1931.
Mazda’s first road-going vehicle was a single seat 3-wheeler – the Mazda-Go. This powered rickshaw was highly tax-friendly and got Japan’s working classes moving.
It wasn’t until 1960 that Mazda produced its first car. The R360 was a delicate small coupe, powered by a tiny 356cc V-twin engine.
Unconventional yet attractive, it marked Mazda out as an engineering-led company that paid close attention to weight and handling. These priorities remain deeply embedded in Mazda’s design DNA today.
Aesthetics is another priority for Mazda. From the budget Mazda2 to the larger SUVs, most Mazdas look sharp. And this doesn’t come at the cost of usability either, with Mazda enjoying a well-earned reputation for reliability, safety and good driver ergonomics.
It’s worth noting that small-yet-significant choices like this don’t hinder Mazda’s eye of innovation, either. Despite some initial scepticism, Mazda is turning towards electric power with more conviction. Its all-electric MX-30 is rakish and innovative.
Electric car insurance is also getting cheaper as EVs become more mainstream, and most Mazda car insurance group ratings, even those its electric cars fall into, look reasonable. Generally, the mid-range models tend to be the best compromise for value, comfort and quality.
