4. Choose the right job title

Abigayle said:"Pick the right job title. Use the job picker tool from Money Saving Expert.

"Find a job title that suits what you do, so it's not lying – but it's cheaper in terms of premiums."

5. Shop around

The expert said: "Shop around. Look directly at insurers' websites and also at comparison websites.

"I would always get as many quotes as possible with the same level of cover – so that I know that I'm getting the best price possible."

"I know it's a bit of legwork, but you've got to work to save money."

6. Pick a multi-car policy

She added: "If somebody in your household has got a car that's insured, find out if they're insured on a multi-car policy.

"It might save you some money."

7. Add your licence number

Abigayle said: "No one ever wants to do this, but add your driving licence number.

"It saved me twenty quid, and it's better to have twenty quid in your pocket than someone else's."
