Star Wars: The Last Jedi is sweeping the global box office this Christmas with its blend of action and sci-fi drama. The Star Wars series is famous for numerous things, such as Light sabers, Jedi, and Sith Lords. However, it is perhaps the vehicles that have become the best know aspects of the movies. If you have ever wondered how much it would cost to insure iconic Star Wars vehicles, here’s the answer”.

Star Destroyers, the Death Star, AT-AT Walkers, X-Wings, Tie Fighters, and of course, the Millennium Falcon. The classic vehicles will not be cheap to insure, so let’s hope Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker have plenty of money in the bank.

InsureTheGap has compiled the premium value for some of the famous vehicles in Star Wars. The Millennium Falcon is the most famous vehicle from the saga and the company says the ship would cost Han Solo £414,533 a year. It seems being a smuggler and space rebel does not give insurance companies risk confidence.

The X-Wing was the standard fighter for the rebels, but each one would have cost a cool
£217,323 to ensure. Considering how many of these ships are destroyed, we imagine the insurer has to deal with plenty of claims.

The company says it approached the insurance assessment in the same way it would any other normal vehicle:

“We started off researching each of our eight chosen vehicles so that we could create a ‘profile’ – much like our own systems do. Our profiles were generated by considering normal things such as weight and size, as well as some factors which we had to use some artistic license to assign values to, such as maximum speed in atmosphere.”
