Beat Rising Insurance Premiums with pluginsure

The Association of British Insurers ("ABI") has reported that the cost of motor insurance continues to rise with the latest data from its Premium Tracker showing that premiums have reached record levels.

The ABI’s Premium Tracker - the only market survey which measures prices consumers actually pay for their motor cover (rather than quotes) shows that the average premium paid over the whole of 2017 at £481 was 9% higher than the previous year and the highest since ABI started collecting this data back in 2012. This added an extra £40 to the average premium.

This increase has contributed to an increase of 29% in the average cost of motor cover since 2014.

The ABI has urged the Government to help combat these costs by speeding up reforms determining how compensation for large personal injury compensation awards is adjusted (known as the Discount Rate) together with reforms to address how lower value whiplash claims are handled. The ABI is also pushing for the Government to halt recent rises in Insurance Premium Tax which has now reached 12%.
