INTERVIEW/COMMENT: CAR INSURANCE PREMIUMS RISE FOR 8 SUCCESSIVE QUARTERS
New research has shown that car insurance premiums have once again risen to a new high*. Amanda Stretton, motoring editor at Confused.com responds:
“Car insurance prices are at tipping point and unfortunately this is likely to continue throughout the rest of the year. Our own research, based on over 6 million quotes from the last quarter, shows that car insurance premiums have ramped up to an average of £827, expected to hit £900 this year.
“The good news is that insurers now have to show drivers what they paid for car insurance last year, making it easier for them to compare against their renewal price. January is always a difficult month after the excess of Christmas and that is true for drivers’ wallets too. Confused.com want to help and are guaranteeing to beat the price your insurer is charging you.
“Drivers can see just how much the average premium for their area is using the Confused.com car insurance calculator, to get an idea of how much they could be paying when it comes around to renewing.”
