Tesco Finance: UK drivers overpaying on car insurance

15 July 2005 / by None
A recent Tesco Finance study has revealed that UK drivers could be overpaying by more than £663 million for their auto breakdown insurance.

The study cited a prevalence of drivers to rely solely on traditional car insurance firms AA and RAC without researching other options.

RAC and AA charge around £160 premiums while Tesco and Britannia Rescue both charge under £100 for breakdown coverage.

Allan Burns, head of car breakdown cover at Tesco Personal Finance, said: "Most drivers look for the best combination of quality and cost from their car insurance provider, and they should expect the same from their car breakdown cover."

Green Flag Motoring Assistance, one of the top three companies in the sector, provides Tesco car breakdown cover, and is backed by proven expertise in service provision.

Mr Burns added: "By shopping around consumers will see they now have far greater choice of quality and value."
