Well I signed up this week and paid an upfront fee of £175.43, received the Tracker today and plugged it into OBD2 socket and got it activated so now for every mile I drive it will cost me 4p. Last year I did 4032 miles so they go off that so should be on average £15 per month but will probably be a lot less than that but we will see. Will keep you updated.

With Tesco who I am with until Friday it was £524 to renew, £80 up on last year, most of them were over £600, 4 years NCB because I couldn’t bring my French 14 years to UK. I think that now I am a widow the price seems to be higher than having a Husband, can’t prove that though.

I have been told by a few people that being a widow/widower can increase your premiums. I just put my marriage status as single, which is true.

Hmm, true but not accurate, insurance companies will dive deep to save a payout, maybe find out from a different insurance company if what you have been "told" is true, if not then you can still confess.

My guess is that if you had to tick a box asking if you were married, widowed, single etc, and you ticked the single box, you might have problem. If instead you had to fill in a line asking your marital status, then you should be ok. - Only a guess!


It would be interesting to know if being a widow (or widower) does actually increase an insurance premium, from an ‘information’ point of view. Obviously ones address affects it, as does age, profession, use of vehicle etc. It seems crazy though that ones marital status might affect it......unless it depends on how many drivers there will be of the car, - but you have to state that anyway! It is like the question as to how many vehicles you have in your household. How does that affect the insurance of one particular driver on one particular car In that household?

Lin I asked the same question and was told the insurance company looks on it that if there are other vehicles you could in theory sometimes be a passenger in another car hence your own vehicle wouldn’t be getting so much use lessoning the risk on your own car.
