Can anyone drive an insured car in Spain?
In Spain it is the vehicle that is insured and not the person. Most motor insurances in Spain will cover the main driver and any driver over a certain age (+25 years old).
Most policies in Spain cover any driver as long as over 25 years old and with a clean driving license, so any member of your family can use the car without modifying the policy.
Who can drive my car in Spain?
You can drive a car in Spain if you’re aged 18 or above and have a valid driving license. Citizens from EU/EFTA countries can use a driving license from their own country.
Can a 16 year old insure a car?
We can insure any qualified 16-year olds on most scooters and most 18+ year olds in cars, even if they have only just passed their driving test in Spain.
Young drivers in Spain are those classified as between the ages of 16 and 25.
Can you insure a UK registered car in Spain?
Yes, it is possible to insure your UK plated car with InsuranceAgents.es.
With UK plated cars you can obtain a full range of covers including third party, third party fire and theft and fully comprehensive cover.
Can I pay car insurance monthly in Spain?
Yes, you can. However, an insurance contract is a 12 month commitment from both you and the insurer.
If the insurer allows you to pay in instalments you are legally obliged to make all those instalments to cover the annual premium.
If I use the breakdown assistance, does that count as a claim?
No, if you need breakdown assistance or you have a flat battery for example, this doesn’t count as a claim on your insurance. Your no-claims bonus stays intact.
Is emergency charging included for my electric car?
Yes, if you run out of battery, our mechanics will come to you and provide you with half an hour of battery charging, which doesn’t count as a claim. Your no-claims bonus stays in tact.
I have a cracked or broken windscreen, can I claim on my insurance?
Yes, you can claim for a cracked or broken windscreen and it doesn’t affect your no-claims bonus.
How is the premium of a car insurance determined?
The premium of car insurance is calculated based on a variety of factors, each contributing to the overall risk assessment and cost. One of the primary considerations is the type of car you own. Different models of cars carry different levels of risk, influenced by factors such as their safety records, repair costs, and likelihood of theft. The specific area where you drive your car is also taken into account, as some regions may have higher rates of accidents or theft.
Adding to these factors, insurance companies carefully evaluate the individual history of the car and its driver. A significant aspect of this is the general damage history of the specific car model.
If your car has a history of being involved in accidents or is known to have a high potential for damage, this can lead to a higher insurance premium. Similarly, your personal claims history is a critical factor. A history of frequent claims can indicate a higher risk, resulting in increased premiums. On the other hand, a record of few or no claims will lead to lower premiums, reflecting a lower risk.
Another crucial element is your payment history. Consistent and timely payments can portray you as a reliable customer, potentially leading to more favorable premium rates. In contrast, a history of late or missed payments can negatively impact your risk profile and increase your premiums.
Interestingly, in some countries, such as Spain, the age and value of the car are not the primary factors in determining the insurance premium. Instead, the emphasis is more on assessing the risk to third parties. This approach reflects a different perspective on risk assessment and insurance pricing.
Overall, the premium for car insurance is a composite of several factors: the type of car, the area of driving, selected policy extras (like roadside assistance and accident risk coverage), the car’s general damage history, the driver’s claims and payment history, and the potential risk to third parties. Understanding these factors can help you better appreciate how insurance companies calculate premiums and what influences the cost of your car insurance policy.
What documents do I need to drive in Spain and be insured with?
Valid Driver’s License: Carry a driver’s license from your country or an International Driving Permit if it’s not in Spanish or a recognized language.
Proof of Identity: Always have your passport or national identity card (DNI).
Vehicle Registration Document: Known as “Permiso de Circulación,” this document proves ownership or authorized use of the vehicle.
Proof of Insurance: Ensure coverage for third-party liability and, optionally, comprehensive coverage. This can be physical or digital.
ITV (Inspección Técnica de Vehículos) Certificate: Confirms the vehicle’s roadworthiness, safety, and emissions standards compliance. Required for older vehicles.
European Accident Statement: Advisable to carry for documenting information in case of an accident.
Taxation Compliance: Ensure the vehicle is properly taxed, confirming its registration and legality for road use.
