Young Drivers: Aged 17* to 21
For very young drivers there are two major hurdles that mean a Marmalade young driver car finance package could be very helpful:
- You will not have a built up a credit rating to be able to demonstrate good repayment behaviour
- Your inexperience behind the wheel of a car will mean your car insurance premium will be very high.
This is where Marmalade can really help simultaneously finding you a good finance deal and building in FREE car insurance (or a substantial contribution to it). For a new driver car insurance even on a small car can run into £000s. Learn about car insurance options.
* you can’t enter into credit agreements until you are aged 18. If you are 17 then a parent could apply on your behalf.
Young Drivers: Aged 22 to 24
By the time you’re in your early 20s, you should have started to become not only a more proficient and safe driver (leading to much lower insurance rates) but also have a reasonable credit rating. It is therefore quite possible that there are other more mainstream offers that could compete with Marmalade’s.
We’re partnered with another car finance broker too and it is sensible to get a quote from them to make sure that Marmalade is competitive. Then you can move forward with confidence.

The Marmalade scheme allows you to finance the purchase of your new car with only a low deposit needed. The finance used can be either HP or PCP (click to learn more). Typically you don’t own the car until you have made all the payments. With PCP you have the option of handing the car back before making the final “balloon” payment.
If you wish you could pay for the car outright with cash, or borrow from elsewhere using an unsecured loan for example.
Yes, all Marmalade cars are brand new. In fact, you choose the car you want and specify various options to tailor it to your needs. As you do so you will see the effect on the monthly cost so you can ensure the car you specify is affordable. There is a wide range of car brands and models to choose from (see above).
These are the insurance options available:
- Black box (telematic) insurance – suitable for learners as well as full licence holders aged from 17 onwards. Young person is the main driver. There are no curfews.
- Learner driver insurance – provisional licence holders using a parent’s, friend’s or a family car
- Named young driver insurance – young drivers driving a parent’s or grandparent’s car
- Pay as you go insurance – full licence holders driving a family car and only paying for the miles driven.
The price you pay for insurance is all about the level of risk your driving poses! So, when you are young and inexperienced the risk is (much) higher and so too are the premiums. What the black box does is help to lower the risk – because it monitors your driving you are encouraged to drive responsibly and safely. You develop good driving habits. With this lower risk comes more affordable insurance.
You are actually able to go online and view your driving data to discover how well you’ve been doing!
Unlike some other insurers, Marmalade doesn’t impose any curfews on your use of the car. You may be asked to add a parent to your policy as this helps to keep premiums down while you build up a no claims discount for the future.
So, how well do Marmalade drivers do? 9 out of 10 drivers have never had a problem and benefit from continued low insurance premiums. Just so you know, if in future you decide to no longer be insured by Marmalade the black box is simply turned off (but as you own it it remains discretely fitted in your car).
