The average cost of car insurance continues to rise, leaving a lot of drivers doing whatever they can to find the cheapest deal.
An often overlooked method to help save money on car insurance is to find a car insurance cashback deal. As buying car insurance is a legal requirement and cannot be avoided, you may as well use a cashback service to actually earn money for the policy you buy.
If you do your research and find the best policy for you, then it is always worth checking if you can buy insurance via a cashback website to get some money back on what you spend – it might be as little as 50p, but could be as much as £50.
You may also find that some policies that were not quite the cheapest at first glance actually work out better value for money when you factor in the amount of cashback you can get on them.
Below we have rounded up the best cashback car insurance deals for 2020 in the UK, taking into consideration their popularity and the amount of cashback on offer.
