It was very easy to follow online to complete my Insurance and when I had to ring to ask some questions they were very helpful. I’m not very good with technology and they made it very easy for me to follow the steps I needed to complete my form. Would definitely recommend to friends. Great value for money. Susan 29.08.2023

Take a look at our EV comparison FAQs and learn more about what it means to go electric.

An EV is better for the environment, but many people choose hybrids because the fuel tank provides peace of mind if the battery runs out while driving. It’s worth exploring the pros and cons of both to figure out the best option for you. 

The cost of both Evs and hybrid options are changing quickly in our current climate.  When comparing overall costs, remember to include the SEAI grants or discounts available and factor in future fuel savings too. 

There are two main options available to PHEV owners: charging at home, or at a public charging point. The ESB has more information on the different types of charges, the average costs, and an interactive map of their services.
