As you get older, chances are you’re driving less. So it makes sense to pay less for your car insurance.
As the years go by, it can be harder to see clearly on the road at night or in rainy weather. But recent research has shown that older drivers are still safer than those in younger age brackets, with even the most elderly having lower crash rates than the young, according to Mark King, Senior Lecturer at Queensland University of Technology’s Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety.1
That’s most likely because older drivers tend to drive less, and avoid heavy traffic and driving at night – reducing the risk of an accident.

Despite this, many older drivers are still paying high car insurance premiums. If this sounds familiar, Australian Seniors Pay As You Drive car insurance might be the answer.
