Mini cars for young drivers

From: £303 p/m


Quintessentially British, the Mini was launched in the late 1950s and became a fashion icon during the Swinging Sixties. Think of a Mini and you know just what you’re getting. The small compact rounded body is instantly recognisable and, despite many updates, it retains its original distinctive style, vintage flavour and charming character.

Well known for making small compact cars that are brilliant to drive the Mini is a true British icon. With a strong sense of style that is retro inspired, the Mini’s popularity doesn’t show any signs of fading. 

Best known for...

Whilst its fashionable good looks help to keep Mini a constant favourite, it isn’t just a case of style over substance. The Mini is renowned for being a fantastic drive that is sprightly with direct steering and a lively, yet economical, engine. The Mini is one of the most desirable supermini brands in the market and this helps it retain a good re-sale value.

In 1955, British Motor Corporation appointed an engineer to design a new small model. In 1959 that small car was launched as the Morris Mini Minor and 10 years later the Mini became a marque in its own right. The Mini, with its incredibly compact dimensions and unique design, revolutionised the small car market, to the extent that the Mini became the best-selling British car!

In 2001 BMW took ownership of Mini and there followed numerous updates and revamps plus the introduction of some newer, sportier models like the Clubman and the Countryman - but the Mini One is the Mini at its purest and the closest relation to the original.

Frequently asked questions

What is a guarantor? Plus Icon

A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments.

Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.

How does the insurance work? Plus Icon

We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)

What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application? Plus Icon

If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.

What happens after the first year? Plus Icon

We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
