With the number of car accidents set to increase by 20 per cent over the bank holiday weekend, Lloyds TSB Insurance has called on drivers to make sure they are sufficiently covered.
According to figures, claims following the May Bank Holiday are usually high, but latest results from the insurer based on last year show that claims could rise even more over the coming weekend.
Phil Loney, managing director, Lloyds TSB Insurance, commented: "Hopefully most car claims will be for nothing more than a bump or scratch.
"Nevertheless the potential for such a huge rise in accidents should serve as a refreshing reminder to every single driver to make absolutely certain they're insured - and insured properly."
The day after bank holiday actually typically sees more claims than on any other day in the month. To read more about car insurance click here.
