Foreign drivers can get temporary car insurance now

Foreign drivers can get temporary car insurance now

UPDATE : Unfortunately, this insurance policy is no longer available. Thank you zemlinsky and nealmcburnett for pointing this out. For a long time, people coming to visit the UK were unable to find car insurance because they held driving licences from countries not in the EU. Citizens of South Africa, Australia, USA, New Zealand and Canada were gutted that they could not drive their family or friend’s car whilst on ...

Top 5 reasons why automatic cars are better than manual ones

Top 5 reasons why automatic cars are better than manual ones

I’ve always been biased towards manual cars because I learnt driving in one and over the years I’ve gotten used to it. Most people do not like change because the unknown worries us as we don’t feel secure and this happened to me as well when I decided to get an automatic car. If it was not because I didn’t have any choice, I wouldn’t do it but now that I have, I do not regret it a single bit. So here’s how my Nis...

Carkoon, the most advanced car seat protection or just a marketing ploy?

Carkoon, the most advanced car seat protection or just a marketing ploy?

We all want what's best for our children and like we all know, rear facing car seats are the safest for young children. Currently car seats can vary in price starting from as little as £50 to £250. When I had to buy one for my first child, I went for the best one that was available at that time (MaxiCosy) together with the base for £120 and it was highly rated by Which magazine which gave me more confidence. It made ...

16 year olds would be allowed to drive legally on UK roads

Many teenagers will be delighted to know that in January 2013, a new law will come into effect whereby a 16 year old will be able to drive a micro car.

The term micro-car refers to a vehicle smaller than city cars and to comply with the British law, it needs to weigh no more than 350Kg and travel at a max...

Drivers of uninsured and untaxed cars will not be allowed to refuel

Drivers of uninsured and untaxed cars will not be allowed to refuel

The high number of uninsured motorists has become a huge problem in the UK as innocent drivers see significant increase in premiums year after year because insurers have to pay out claims but are not getting their money back. Drastic measures have already been put in place where cars without valid insurance are crashed and those without tax are towed away but that does not seem to be enough to deter the outlaws. So n...

Driving habits will change with the introduction of Telematics when getting car insurance

Driving habits will change with the introduction of Telematics when getting car insurance

As you may have heard the ‘little black box’ sat-nav tracker is set to become the new policy for car insurance in the near future. A year or two ago, it was being offered by Norwich Union (now Aviva) until they dropped it but now other insurance providers are set to implement trackers as standard going forward. Young Marmalade has been implementing the little black box for some new and young drivers a few years n...

Flying cars to be available to everyone soon

We’ve seen them in many movies and we wondered whether flying cars would eventually become a reality. The idea of being able to use airspace and avoid traffic seems very appealing to many people and the long wait will soon be over. Terrafugia, a USA based company, has been developing and refining the Transition Roadable Aircraft (TRA) since 2006 and they are now ready to offer this fururistic vehicle to those who are...

Things to do in Mauritius

Mauritius is found in the tropical region and so has quite a warm climate all year long. Many activities can thus be enjoyed at all times though of course some activities are better done at specific periods of the year like kite surfing is best done during August as there is more wind. Also, the island is quite small and so the whole island can be visited in a few days. Besides the breathtaking views of the island it...

Is it worth getting car contents insurance for your valuable possessions?

Is it worth getting car contents insurance for your valuable possessions?

Most people nowadays have a few cool gadgets for their cars – a satellite navigation system enables the driver to go from A to B without any difficulty or prior knowledge of the route whilst an MP3 player/iPod makes the journey more enjoyable. Very often, these devices are left in the car sometimes unhidden and they usually become a target for thieves who are always looking for an easy opportunity to steal your thing...
