Motorists told to shop around for car insurance

17 August 2005
Motorists are being urged to spend more time looking around when it comes to buying car insurance.

Not only will prices differ for different cars and situations, but customers can also make minor changes themselves in order to get a better deal, says Richard Mason of

“No one policy is ever cheapest for every situation so it’s essential to shop around for your car insurance,” he claims.

People may not be aware of this, but reducing mileage, car sharing, or adding an older driver to the policy can reduce cover costs by up to 15 per cent.

Drivers are also encouraged to protect their no claims bonus by not claiming for every minor incident, which can significantly cut costs in the longer term.

With premiums staying high, at an average of £579.57, and the big companies dominating the market, drivers are being encouraged to “seek out the most competitive quotes for their motor insurance”.
