  2. The Ultimate List of Footballers and their Cars

    Leave a Comment
    Research shows the car footballers own and how many minutes of play it takes to pay for them; results also show a correlation between the type of cars owned and the position footballers play in.
    • Jesus Navas could pay for his Nissan Micra in just 11 minutes of game play
    • Chelsea’s John Terry owns the most expensive car, valued at more than approx. $2.5 million
    • Midfielders and forwards are more likely to own sports cars than any other vehicle type
    • Defenders and goalkeepers are more likely to own SUVs than any other vehicle type
    • Cristiano Ronaldo owns the fastest car in the world 

    Online used car dealership Carspring have researched the vehicles driven by more than 250 of the world’s leading football players. With this information, along with the estimated salaries of each player, the online showroom were able to calculate how many minutes of game time each athlete would have to play in order to pay off the value of their vehicle. In addition to this, the study shows an interesting correlation between the vehicle type driven and the player’s position on the field.

    In order to find out the vehicles driven by each player along with their estimated salary, hundreds of newspapers, magazines, social media outlets, fan clubs, message boards and other resources were reviewed. Vehicle values were sourced from the country in which the athlete plays, with prices taken from dealerships or, in the case of more unique vehicles, the official sites for each manufacturer.

    To calculate the playing time needed to pay for their car, the annual salary of the player excluding bonuses was divided by the number of games played in their respective league. From this, a salary per minute could be calculated.


    The five players who could pay for their car in the quickest time are as follows:

    Rank Player Team Car Type Time Needed (Minutes:Seconds) 
    1 Jesús Navas Manchester City Nissan Micra  11:17
     2 Carlos Tevez  Shanghai Shenhua Porsche Panamera Turbo S  11:35
    3 N’Golo Kanté  Chelsea Mini Cooper SD  12:58
    4 Fernando Llorente Swansea City  Fiat Punto 13:52
    5 Axel Witsel Tianjin Quanjian F.C.  Cadillac Escalade 15:31


    The five players who would take the longest amount of time to pay for their vehicles are as follows:

    Rank Player Team Car Type Time Needed (Minutes:Seconds)
    252 Willard Katsande Kaizer Chiefs Nissan 370Z 16:00:58
    253 Victor Anichebe Sunderland A.F.C. Rolls Royce Phantom  16:57:09
    254 Kgotso Moleko Kaizer Chiefs BMW 135i Cabriolet 20:05:58
    255 Tom Heaton  Burnley F.C. Range Rover Sport  22:17:49
    256 George Boyd  Burnley F.C. Mercedes 300 SL 45:40:23

    The five players with the most expensive cars are:

    Rank Player Team Car Type Value (approx.)
    1 John Terry  Chelsea  Ferrari 275 GTB $2,574,000
    2  Cristiano Ronaldo  Real Madrid  Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse  $2,251,900
    3 Karim Benzema  Real Madrid  Bugatti Veyron Pur Sang  $1,930,545
    4 Lassana Diarra  Al-Jazira  Bugatti Veyron  $1,544,160
    5 Andres Iniesta  FC Barcelona  Bugatti Veyron $1,544,160

    Full results can be viewed here

    In addition to the results above, the position in which an athlete plays appears to have an effect on the type of vehicle he will buy. As shown in the graphic below, players who play in defensive positions on the pitch have a higher chance of owning an SUV, whilst those up-front own the, arguably flashier, sports cars.

    Correlation between field position and the type of car owned



    Further Insights:

    • Out of the ten players with the most expensive cars, five play in midfield and four in attack

    • Out of the ten players with the cheapest cars, four are defenders and two are goalkeepers

    • George Boyd of Burnley would need to play for 45 hours, 40 minutes and 23 seconds to pay for his Range Rover Sport, the longest of any duration on the list

    • Swansea’s Fernando Llorente has the least expensive car out of all the players included, with his Fiat Punto valued at approx. $18,972.

    • John Terry is the only player in the list whose market value is less than the value of their car

    • 100 of the 256 players researched could pay off the value of their vehicle within the 90 minutes it takes to play one game.

  3. Would you Rent your Driveway?

    Leave a Comment

    Homeowners in almost 30 towns and cities across the UK made an average of more than £1,000 per year from renting their empty driveway, according to the latest research by online parking marketplace


    Unsurprisingly, driveways in London netted the most money, earning their owners on average £2,303 per year. This is up six percent on the previous year, reflecting a growing demand for the service and increased awareness among homeowners of the money earning potential by renting out their driveway, garage or secure parking.

    The borough of Kensington and Chelsea topped the list within London with its residents earning £3,367 on average through

    However, the latest research also reveals that savvy driveway owners away from the capital are also making significant amounts. Brighton came second in the list with homeowners renting their driveway on earning on average £1,761 per year, while the northern cities of Leeds and Manchester also finished in the top five earning £1,544 and £1,476 respectively.

    Cities outside of England also fared well. Edinburgh finished fourth on the list with its residents earning £1,526 on average, while Belfast also came in the top 10 at £1,343. Perhaps most significantly the results showed that there is the very real possibility to boost household income in towns and cities across the UK, with 28 above the £1,000 average annual mark.

    Indeed, even those at the bottom of the website’s Top 50 league table had sizeable money earning potential. Bolton, which took the final spot, still earned its residents £816 per year on average just by renting out an empty driveway.

    Harrison Woods, managing director of, said,

    “These results demonstrate that there are potentially very lucrative money earning opportunities across the UK from renting a driveway, garage or secure parking space.

    “Meanwhile, an increasing number of businesses with spare parking capacity are also registering on It’s very simple to do and unlocks a potentially significant revenue stream, in many cases just by being close to local amenities.”

  4. 2017 Driving test changes: Here is what you need to know

    Leave a Comment
    From Monday 4th December 2017, the driving test will change to include the use of a sat nav and will test different manoeuvres.
    The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has confirmed that the driving test in England, Scotland and Wales will change from Monday 4 December 2017. The changes are designed to make sure new drivers have the skills they’ll need to help them through a lifetime of safe driving.

    Watch how the new test will work

    The 4 driving test changes

    1. Independent driving part of the test will increase to 20 minutes

    The independent driving part of the test currently lasts around 10 minutes. During this part of the test, you have to drive without turn-by-turn directions from the driving examiner.

    This part of the test will be made longer, so it’ll last around 20 minutes – roughly half of the test.


    2. Following directions from a sat nav

    During the independent driving part of the test, most candidates will be asked to follow directions from a sat nav.

    The examiner will provide the sat nav and set it up. You won’t need to set the route – the examiner will do this for you. So, it doesn’t matter what make or model of sat nav you practise with.

    You can’t follow directions from your own sat nav during the test – you have to use the one supplied by the examiner.

    You’ll be able to ask the examiner for confirmation of where you’re going if you’re not sure. It won’t matter if you go the wrong way unless you make a fault while doing it.

    One in 5 driving tests won’t use a sat nav. You’ll need to follow traffic signs instead.


    3. Reversing manoeuvres will be changed

    The ‘reverse around a corner’ and ‘turn-in-the-road’ manoeuvres will no longer be tested, but you should still be taught them by your instructor.

    You’ll be asked to do one of three possible reversing manoeuvres:

    • Parallel park at the side of the road
    • Park in a bay – either driving in and reversing out, or reversing in and driving out (the examiner will tell you which you have to do)
    • Pull up on the right-hand side of the road, reverse for 2 car lengths and rejoin the traffic


    4. Answering a vehicle safety question while you’re driving

    The examiner will ask you two vehicle safety questions during your driving test –  known as the ‘show me, tell me’ questions.

    You’ll be asked the:

    • ‘tell me’ question (where you explain how you’d carry out a safety task) at the start of your test, before you start driving
    • ‘show me’ question (where you show how you’d carry out a safety task) while you’re driving – for example, showing how to wash the windscreen using the car controls and wipers


    Transport Minister, Andrew Jones, said:

    “Our roads are among the safest in the world. However, road collisions are the biggest killer of young people. These changes will help us to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on our roads and equip new drivers with the skill they need to use our roads safely.”

    Share your thoughts with us on the changes to the driving test.

    I began working as an Account Manager here at Warrantywise back in 2012, but left for a while in February 2014 to travel and live in New Zealand.

    I returned to my old role In February last year and it is crazy just how much the trade department has grown over the years. When I first started here there was only three or four or us, now there are two constantly growing trade departments. It is great to be part of a busy market leading company, selling the very best warranties, which still stick to their original family business values.

    As an account manager I love building long lasting relationships with motor dealers looking to sell our prestigious extended car warranties. Paul is our main contact at Redline Specialist cars, and although he is not on the phone 24/7 he knows I am always here when he needs us. All the guys at Redline are always friendly and easy to talk to on the phone which makes my job even better.

    Wayne, one of our on the road reps, also has a great relationship with everybody at Redline, and regularly checks in with them to ensure all is running smoothly and they have everything they need.

  6. Double penalties for motorists using mobiles comes into force

    Leave a Comment

    Motorists using a phone while driving will receive six points on their licence, a £200 fine and have no option of an awareness course. New drivers face losing their licence if they use their phones at the wheel under tough measures coming into force on (1 March 2017), warned Transport Secretary Chris Grayling. 

  7. GEM Welcomes Rise in Speeding Fines

    Leave a Comment

    Road safety and breakdown recovery provider GEM Motoring Assist has welcomed the announcement from the Sentencing Council that speeding fines for the most serious offences in England and Wales are to rise by up to 50 per cent. The decision has been made in an attempt to deter motorists from speeding. This means that drivers caught at 101mph or above on a motorway could face a fine of up to 150 per cent of their weekly income.

    The current fine is up to 100 per cent of weekly income, up to a maximum of £1000, or £2500 for motorway infringements.

    GEM road safety officer Neil Worth said the increased penalties sent the right message to drivers about the dangers of driving to fast. “Illegal or inappropriate speeds remain a significant road safety problem,” he commented.

    “If more people complied with speed limits, there would be fewer deaths and injuries on our roads; it’s as simple as that. We therefore welcome the increase in fines, as we know the enforcement of speed limits plays a vital role in road safety.”

    “As drivers and riders, we are all responsible for the speeds we choose. No one can tell us to break the speed limit. So we urge every driver and rider to take that responsibility seriously and to play their part in making our roads safer.”

    The new fines are ranked into brands. The tables below demonstrate the reinforcement of these bands.

    Speed Limit (mph) Recorded Speed (mph)
    20 41 and above 31 – 41 21 – 30
    30 51 and above 41 – 50 31 – 40
    40 66 and above 56 – 65 41 – 55
    50 76 and above 66 – 75 51 – 65
    60 91 and above 81 – 90 61 – 80
    70 101 and above 91 – 100 71 – 90
    Sentencing Range Band C fine Band B fine Band A fine
    Points/disqualification Disqualify 7 – 56 days OR 6 points Disqualify 7 – 28 days OR 4 – 6 points 3 points


    Band Range Starting Point  Range
    Fine Band A 50% of relevant weekly income 25 – 75% of relevant weekly income
    Fine Band B 100% of relevant weekly income 75 – 125% of relevant weekly income
    Fine Band C 150% of relevant weekly income 125 – 175% of relevant weekly income
    Fine Band D 250% of relevant weekly income 200 – 300% of relevant weekly income
    Fine Band E 400% of relevant weekly income 300 – 500% of relevant weekly income
    Fine Band F  600% of relevant weekly income 500 – 700% of relevant weekly income
    The court will consider further adjustment for any mitigating or any aggravating factors. They will conclude whether any combination of the following, or any other relevant factors, should result in an upward or downward adjustment from the sentence given.


    Factors increasing seriousness

    Statutory aggravating factors:

    • Previous convictions, having regard to a) the nature of the offence to which the conviction relates and its relevance to the current offence; and b) the time that has elapsed since the conviction
    • Offence committed whilst on bail

    Other aggravating factors:

    • Offence committed on licence or post sentence supervision
    • Poor road or weather conditions
    • Driving LGV, HGV, PSV etc.

    • Driving for hire or reward

    • Location e.g. near school
    • High level of traffic or pedestrians in the vicinity

    Factors reducing seriousness or reflecting personal mitigation

    • No previous convictions or no relevant/recent convictions

  8. Dealer Case Study – Castle Motors

    Castle Motors Case Study

    Warrantywise Celebrate 5 Year Anniversary with Castle Motors

    Founded in 1972, Castle Motors is a family owned and run business. With a purpose-built luxury showroom, their forecourt has a wide range of vehicles on display, including some of the world’s most prestigious marques. Castle Motors have been using Warrantywise to protect their used vehicles since 2011, and we recently got in touch with them to talk about their experience with Warrantywise, here is what they had to say.

    Having previously used two other used car warranty companies, Castle Motors did not have the full 100% trust and confidence in them, stating, “we did not like putting our name to other warranty companies, which is why we didn’t sell very many. It’s difficult to sell a product that you do not have faith in. With Warrantywise we are happy to sell them as we appreciate that their quality will reflect back upon us as the selling dealership.”

    Castle Motors wanted to use the best warranty company to protect their cars, so after some research they decided to start using Warrantywise based on the level of coverage, the Quentin Willson approval, the terms, branding and online reviews. Castle Motors rated the service from Warrantywise a 10/10 stating that, “the level of service and ease of claiming are second to none. Warranties are also easy to personalise and great value for the level of cover provided, and, are easy to use and process online.”

    Repairs Procedure

    On the unfortunate event of a breakdown, Warrantywise have a simple and straightforward repairs procedure . When asking Castle Motors about their experience with the repairs procedure, as they do request repairs on behalf of their customers, they praised the repairs process as being quick and easy to deal with, “the whole process is fast & easy. Payment is quick, and most importantly fair. Telephone customer service especially during the claim procedure is quick and efficient.”

    Further going on to say, “this is in stark contrast to other warranty companies that I have dealt with in the past. Occasionally we have to claim on other companies warranties when vehicles come in, often we sit on the phone for tens of minutes waiting for them to answer, when they do they seem to put hoops for you to jump through to get paid out. It is companies like this that give the industry bad press.”

    “The whole process is fast & easy. Payment is quick, and most importantly fair.”

    Castle Motors Case Study

    Booking Process

    When booking on warranties, car dealers can either use the online system or ring their dedicated account manager. Castle Motors prefer the online system stating, “we particularly like the online system, it is swift and easy to use even for computer non literate people.”

    Already have an Account?

    Castle Motors said their top three reasons for using Warrantywise are:

    • Ease and speediness of claims procedure
    • Level of coverage
    • Satisfaction and peace of mind for customers

    Castle Motors praised their overall experience with Warrantywise stating, “we would describe Warrantywise as a fair, honest & reliable company. We are proud to sell their products and will remain doing so for the foreseeable future. We genuinely feel that their products add value to our vehicles.”

    “We would describe Warrantywise as a fair, honest & reliable company.”

    Meet their Account Manager… Lindsay

    I started my journey at Warrantywise in April 2012, however, I did not join the trade department until July 2013. This is when I took over managing the account for Castle Motors and I have built up a great working relationship over the last 3 and a half years.

    I love my job as an Account Manager because of the relationships I am able to build with car dealers. It is great to be able to call Castle Motors on a monthly basis and not feel like it is a “sales call” but more of a catch up call.

    Dale is my main point of contact at Castle Motors and I find it so easy to talk to him. He knows that should he ever need anything then he can just call or email me and I will help him.

  9. The 10 Cheapest Cars to Insure

    Leave a Comment
    Owning a car is not always the cheapest. With the cost of fuel, maintenance and car insurance, it can all add up. Car insurance is expensive, and seems to be rising with each passing year.

    There are a number of ways to bring the cost of your car insurance down, and choosing a car in the right insurance group is high up on the list. When choosing a car to buy it is important to consider insurance group ratings, each car is assigned to an insurance group, group 1 cars are the cheapest to insure, and group 50 cars are the most expensive to insure. Cars are rated on their price, performance, repair cost and security. As the driver you are also judged based on, age, occupation, where you live and your driving record, these are all factors that come into play when calculating the overall insurance cost. Here at Warrantywise we have compiled a list of cars with low insurance costs, scroll down to see.

    Hyundai i10

    The new second generation Hyundai i10, falls into insurance group 1, therefore, making it cheaper to insure than previous models. Equipped with 1.0 litre engine, the i10 is a fantastic city car with low running costs, and can handle the motorway just like a bigger and more expensive car. The i10 features an interesting design, with an improved ride, therefore, making it an ideal first car for young drivers.



    Fiat Panda 

    For those looking for a cheap, small car, with low running costs, the Fiat Panda is the ideal choice. The spacious car offers a decent drive, and with its tall body there is a good amount of interior space, as well as many customisation options available.  Thanks to its big windows, the car offers great visibility, making it an easy car to drive with decent fuel economy.



    Toyota Yaris

    The Yaris is a great option if you are looking to buy a cheap car with impressive safety ratings, featuring 2nd on the Warrantywise reliability table, the Yaris may be the cheapest car to insure based on your driving history. The Yaris is a great city car due to its compact size and eco models.



    Vauxhall Corsa

    The Corsa is a very popular car amongst many drivers, making it one of Britain’s best selling cars. The entry-level Corsa Sting and Corsa Life come in at just group 2, making it one of the cheapest cars to insure on our list. The Corsa has reasonable running costs, and is an overall good value car with modern interior.



    Volkswagen Up!

    An impressive small car, the Volkswagen Up! is one of the cheapest to insure featuring in group 1. The Up! is a smart looking car, great to drive and with an impressive economical engine, it is one of the best city cars on the market.



    SEAT Mii

    The SEAT Mii is an environmental friendly cost effective car, and due to it’s low emissions it is exempt from road tax, making it an even more affordable car on top of its low insurance costs.  With its agile handling, and great visibility the Mii is great fun to drive, on both local roads and the motorway.



    Ford KA

    Worry about fitting your car in to a small parking space?  The Ford Ka is your answer. Due to its compact size you will never have to worry about fitting it in to small parking spaces. The KA is cheap to run, buy and insure, making it the perfect all rounder.



    Dacia Sandero

    The 5 door spacious Dacia Sandero is one of the cheapest cars to buy and insure, making it a perfect family car for those on a budget. It is a surprisingly large car with more interior space than its rivals. It comes well equipped as long as you avoid the basic model, and is enjoyable to drive.



    Skoda Citigo

    The Skoda Citigo, falls into insurance group 1 as a result of its low price. The driving experience of the Skoda Citigo, is what sets the car apart from its rivals. Thanks to its light controls and engineering the Citigo is a satisfying drive on both local roads and the motorway.



    Nissan Qashqai 

    The Qashqai proves that it is not always city cars and small hatchbacks that are affordable to drive and run. The interior space offers passengers with plenty of legroom. The Qashqai is a small SUV, and is near enough as cheap to run a conventional family hatchback. Although more expensive to insure than other makes mentioned, the low running cost makes the Qashqai an ideal choice for families.

The £2m supercar, which is available from Tom Hartley, Britain’s premier high-end car dealer, will be sold as standard with a £10,000 twelve-month Platinum Plus warranty.

    As one of the world’s fastest, most desirable and most complex vehicles, the Bugatti Veyron needs a very special warranty – in this case Warrantywise’s highest level of cover, Platinum Plus. Warrantywise will cover any repairs up to the retail value of the car, including wear and tear, plus roadside assistance and car hire.

    The Platinum Plus warranty covers all mechanical and electrical parts, including oil seals, labour rates, air-conditioning, gaskets, drive belts, wiring looms and radiators. And with a total of ten radiators, four turbochargers and sixteen cylinders, a Warrantywise warranty will be a welcome inclusion for the Veyron’s new owner.

    But the Bugatti’s complexity is necessary for its incredible performance. The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, accelerates from 0-62mph in 2.5 seconds, and is still officially the ‘Guinness Book of World Records Fastest Production Car’, hitting an ‘unrestricted’ top speed of 267.8mph.

    Away from the world of 200mph-capable supercars, Warrantywise also provides cover for some of the UK’s most popular models at more affordable prices. Cover for cars like the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Golf, for example, start from just £19 per month.

    Lawrence Whittaker, CEO of Warrantywise, said:

    “The Bugatti Veyron is one of the most incredible cars ever built, but it comes with a price to match. Servicing and repair costs will always run into the tens-of-thousands, so we wanted to provide Tom Hartley and the Bugatti’s new owner with the best possible cover to make sure there are no unexpected bills at the start of their ownership. We’ve got experience in covering almost every car on the road, from Fords to Ferraris, but this latest Bugatti warranty is really the pinnacle of our line-up.”
