Is car insurance getting more expensive?

It’s fair to say we’d all like a better deal on our car insurance, but is that becoming more of a challenge? Average premiums have risen £200 since records began in September 2012, when they stood at £559*. However, shrewd shoppers continue to make savings and reduce costs. After all, the right deal for you won’t be right for the person down the road. By paying attention to the details beyond just price, you’re more likely to get a good outcome.

What drives the price of car insurance?

A car insurance provider considers many factors, some of which relate to you and your driving habits. These include:

  • Your age, how long you’ve been driving, where you live, and even what you do for a living
  • Then there’s the car – what make and model is it, and therefore, which insurance group is it in? You may decide to save money by buying a car in a lower group, where prices are more favourable
  • An insurance provider will also ask how many miles a year you clock up, and what the value of your car is, both in terms of what you paid for it and the potential repair costs

These factors, and others, can make a big difference to the final quote

Why do prices vary across insurance companies?

You’d be forgiven for thinking that since the answers you give are the same for every insurance provider, prices should be the same. But while insurance providers calculate their prices in broadly similar ways, they all use their own models and formulas. They also have different attitudes to the risks they’re willing to take, and some specialise in providing more advantageous quotes to younger drivers, for example, while others may prefer not to.

Can telematics help me save on my insurance?

If you’ve not heard of a telematics policy, sometimes called a black box car insurance policy, it’s worth finding out more. For some drivers, younger ones in particular, these policies can help you save money on your car insurance. A small box is fitted out of sight within your car, or you can use a smartphone app, which analyses how safely you drive and sends information to the insurance company.

What if I’m set up to auto renew my existing policy?

Insurance providers rely on people auto renewing for convenience, but they don’t always pass on any potential savings to their customers. If you want to save as much as possible year-on-year, it’s always worth comparing the car insurance market regularly. 

There’s no doubt that simply allowing your policy to renew automatically is the easiest option. You don’t need to do anything other than check that the information provided is correct.

But if you’re looking to save money, this isn’t the answer. Our experts calculate that you could save up to £274** by shopping around and comparing rather than auto renewing. That’s quite a difference and probably worth a few minutes of your time.
