Car window tinting has many benefits. Besides more privacy, tinted windows protect both passengers and the car’s interior from UV rays and help the car heat up less in sunlight and stay cooler (great in summer!). Find out here what laws apply and what the average car window tinting cost is in the UK.

On average: £250-£500 for tinting all windows
The largest part of the cost is for installation. Both side windows (front/rear) and windscreens (front/rear) can be expected to cost around £150-£300 each. Since labour costs make up the largest part and the pure material costs are comparatively low, there are only slight price variations between most car models.
So whether you want to tint a Vauxhall Corsa, VW Golf, Ford Focus or BMW 3 series – the car window tinting prices will be quite similar. You will only notice a price difference if you want to tint cars with a very large window area, such as station wagons or buses (e.g. VW T5). Here, the higher material consumption becomes noticeable in terms of price.
