You pay enough in car insurance and you want to be sure if you have a crash, you'll be covered.
But your insurer might say your claim is invalid if they find you doing any of these 10 things.
The obvious one is leaving your car unlocked - no brainer. But wearing flip-flops and even having furry dice dangling from the mirror (who still has these?) could stop a potential payout.
Changing jobs might seem like a minor event - but it isn't. Some jobs will be more of a risk than others. It's even worth mentioning a promotion.
Charging friends for lifts could also have an impact - even if it's as part of a carpool scheme.
Even If you take money in exchange for driving people, you risk voiding your insurance. You need a policy in line with a taxi driver for this.
We love our pets but if a dog is roaming around in the car, this also could stop a payout and even risk a fine of up to £2,500
Ways in which your insurance policy could become invalid ...
*Registering your parent's address (or anyone else's)
*Making changes to your car - (even furry dice)
*NOT claiming for accidents
*Driving more than you expected
*Leaving the engine running
*Wearing flip flops or other inappropariate footwear
*Driving with animals roaming about in the car
*Charging your mates for lifts
*Leaving your car unlocked
