It’s a good idea to lock your car doors when you go for a drive. Thieves just love it if you leave your stuff on the front seat, where they can just open your door and swipe it without even stopping to say please or thank you!


Well, we all love a good sat-nav and unfortunately they’re high on the villain’s shopping list too! Don’t leave them lying around and don’t make it obvious if you’re putting it away when you park up. If you’ve stuck it on the window, then clean the mark off so no-one can see that there’s one in use. And fi nally NEVER put your address in the “Home” setting. If you do and they swipe your car and satnav they’ll probably drive straight to your house and grab the rest of your stuff too!

Ever thought of bending the truth a little on one of those price comparison sites when you’re hunting down bargain insurance?!


Well think again my friend!


Everyone who does this is making the rest of us pay more. Believe it or not Insurers aren’t stupid and they’re pretty good at detecting fraud. So basically any small lie you put on your form could come back to bite you big time when it comes to making a claim.


This includes “fronting”, where people put a named driver (eg mum) as the main driver or even lying about where the car is kept or the driver’s experience or job.


Insurers recently said that they uncovered £410 million-worth of fraudulent claims during 2009. Make no mistake – these guys mean business and they won’t give you a penny unless they really have to.
