Q I’ve heard I should shop around for my car insurance rather than let it auto-renew, but is it really worth it?
L Hughes, Southend-on-Sea A Yes, it is! A recent survey done by MoneySuperMarket found that 41% of drivers let their policy auto-renew last year, with those consumers seeing premiums increase by an average of £42. So, always shop around. Start by looking on pricecomparison sites, then check insurers you won’t find on them, like Direct Line. Then see if your current insurer will match or beat the best quote you’ve found for the cover you need.*
