UK drivers to save £35 after new curbs on whiplash claims
“Car insurance premiums are on track to be the most expensive on record, so it’s reassuring to see the Government finally bringing in measures to lower prices.
“Following a raft of cost-increasing measures, such as the reversal of the Ogden rate and increases to Insurance Premium Tax, drivers are paying 8% more for car insurance than they were last year.
“The average comprehensive premium is now an astonishing £827 on average, so drivers will no doubt celebrate the £35 saving that these proposals will allow them to benefit from.
“However, drivers can make even greater savings by shopping around for the best car insurance deals online. The good news is that insurers now have to show us what we paid for car insurance last year, so it's never been easier for drivers to check what they paid then and compare it to what they are asking you to pay now. We urge drivers to check their renewal letters as the average driver could save as much as £271 on car insurance by shopping around at Confused.com."
