Soldiers are viewed as pillars of the community throughout the UK, people that put their lives on the line to serve the country. Being such honourable individuals you would have thought their occupation brought many advantages, with services like car insurance coming with its benefits. Sadly this is not the case, with many soldiers finding it extremely hard to locate cheap car insurance to cover their private car. This is down to insurers attitude to ‘high risk’ professions, occupations that require danger and are carried out in a fast pace. Where the average Joe would see a Soldier as a regimented, reliable individual the insurers of the world do not, with profession playing a huge role when calculating rates for premiums. To what extent does your profession affect your insurance? Along with your age, your driving history and your registration details your occupation is one of the main factors taken into consideration when calculating prices for cover, playing a vital part in the risk you pose to the provider.
