    Default extra for being a parent??

    its that time of year again for the insurance quote hunt. i've had qoutes on confused.com and had to change the any children under 16 bit and the quotes went up by £50. why and how can they charge for becoming a parent as if cost of a newborn was'nt enough!

    apparently screaming children can be a distraction, putting you hire risk,
    i'm with co-operative insurance, i notified them of the birth of my daughter in july, and they said it doesnt matter to them, as unlike many insurers they believe a child in the car will make you drive safer not less safe, they talked me through it all at the time,

    They say your more likely to have an accident with a child in the car. I would have thought people drive more carefully and take less risks with a child in the car, but hey, insurance companys know best.

    see my above post CIS do not increase costs for parents as they believe the same as you that people with children in car drive carefuller,

    i definitly drive a lot safer and nowhere near as stupidly fast as i used to
