As for ancillary guarantees, one could think of giving up, for example, roadside assistance , which on average requires a cost of about 25 euros per year, or legal protection for an amount of about 20 euros. If your car is quite outdated, you may want to consider eliminating the Insurance or natural event coverage which, in any case, provides a considerable amount, which can even exceed 70 euros per year.
