    Insuring a leased car

    Insuring a leased car 1st Dec 17 at 3:52 PM
    I am thinking of getting a car on a personal lease/contract hire basis.
    Does anyone know if it is generally more expensive to insure a leased car because you are not the "registered keeper" and it belongs to the leasing company or should it be no different to insuring your own car. Cheers.

    well...the thing is you probably are the registered keeper BUT

    NOT the owner till you have paid for the vehicle.
