Green Car Insurance

Drivers have a number of misconceptions about green car insurance.

For example, some drivers believe that green car insurance is only for drivers who own an electric or hybrid car.

Others believe that this type of car insurance will cost more without making a big impact on the environment.

By reviewing the top five things you didn’t know about green car insurance, you can learn more about what this type of insurance is and how it can benefit you.

1.  It Supports Environmental Causes

Green car insurance companies have a significant impact on the environment through the organizations that they fund. The Green Car Insurance Company has carefully selected major organisations to support based on their initiatives and goals, and some of these organizations that receive regular funding from the Green Car Insurance Company are the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, RSPB and others.

2.  It Funds Local Projects

Green car insurance companies also make an Eco-friendly difference at the local level. Many schools, community organizations and more have the desire to evoke change through various projects, but they also need funding. The Green Insurance Company’s Green Grants Scheme is available to provide funding for these projects.

3.  It Helps You to Reduce Your Carbon Emissions

It is estimated that the average carbon emissions of the average United Kingdom resident is about 10 tonnes per year. After having your car insurance in place for one year with The Green Insurance Company, the company will offset one tonne of your carbon emissions. This is an Eco-friendly benefit that has a direct impact on you.

4.  It Is Affordable

A portion of your car insurance premium will be used to fund these various Eco-friendly initiatives, so you may think that your premium from a green car insurance company would be inflated accordingly. However, The Green Insurance Company strives to make buying car insurance affordable, and rates are typically comparable to the rates other car insurance companies offer.

5.  It Is a Convenient Way to Make a Difference

Many residents in the United Kingdom have slowly adopted green changes in their lifestyle. For example, you may recycle regularly, and you may have made improvements to your home to promote water conservation and energy savings. Making more significant changes in your life can be difficult and time-consuming. However, you will find that buying green car insurance is a convenient, easy and affordable way to make a difference.

By learning more about green car insurance, some of your misconceptions may be cleared. Many people who compare green car insurance against the traditional option do make the decision to be Eco-friendly. Simply take time to get a quote for cover today, and you will be well on your way to buying car insurance that makes a difference in the world.
