ingenie launches brand new Quick Car Lookup feature for young drivers

July 31, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
ingenie, specialist provider of car insurance for young drivers, has today announced the launch of Quick Car Lookup to help young drivers choose a suitable car to insure.

The new tool found at http://www.ingenie.com/quick-look-up was created in response to feedback from young drivers who wanted to find out whether their car was acceptable without having to complete a full quote.

After entering your age and selecting your car, the system will tell you whether you've made a good choice of vehicle for a driver of your age. Many different factors are used to generate your insurance quote, but choosing the right car is a great place to start.

"For young drivers, insurance is a huge factor to consider when choosing a car. We've already revealed our top 20 insured cars to give an idea of what other young people are driving. By adding Quick Car Lookup to our website, we've made it possible to check the suitability of any car without having to fill in an entire quote form," said Richard King, founder and CEO of ingenie.

King added, "Young and new drivers are often frustrated when they realise the cost of their insurance can be higher than the value of their car. In reality, the cost of the car is one of the least significant factors influencing the quote. Many other factors are taken into consideration, in particular the risk you pose to other drivers on the road, including damage to their car and personal injury."
