Be Wiser Insurance

Vintage vehicle owners keen to protect their cheap car insurance premiums may want to think about installing security features in their autos, it has been suggested.

Tracker - a motor recovery firm - explained antique models are often targeted by criminals because they do not have the sophisticated kind of anti-theft devices that come with more up-to-date machines.

It acknowledged some protective measures can spoil the look of a rare vintage car, but added it offers a tracking system that does not affect the appearance of historic vehicles.

Geoff Taylor, a former police officer, said there are other benefits of installing such technology.

He stated: "There is also the added advantage of a possible reduction in insurance premiums, good news for any collector as costs and maintenance can easily escalate."

Meanwhile, Tracker recently reported its systems helped the police find more than £400 million worth of stolen vehicles in 2008.
