Heading off to University is a big step for a lot of young people and if they have already got used to the independence of a car then they will want to keep that luxury, however it could be an expensive option.
Student debt is already high, so the added cost of car insurance doesn't need to be yet another monetary worry. There are several things to look at and the first one is where the car will be kept when away at University. Going from the safety of the suburbs to a lively city or student environment will easily put the policy cost up by a significant amount.
Students are also more likely to be victims of theft so this needs to be considered when taking out car insurance. Leaving laptops and phones in a car is a bad idea, if you must leave items even for a short time make sure they are out of sight. It's bad enough having your car broken into without losing more valuables in the incident.
Pretending to still be living at home to keep your insurance costs down is a big no no, and is illegal. If you have a smash you will find you aren't covered. It may save you cash in the short term but will cost you in the longer term.
