DRIVE FOR CHEAPER CAR INSURANCE
DRIVERS could risk paying more than they need to for car insurance due to ‘quirks’ in how insurers and comparison websites collect data, according to Which?
The consumer group found that differences between questions asked by car insurance comparison websites and individual insurers can substantially inflate premiums as assumptions may be made about a driver’s circumstances.
Malcolm Tarling, Association of British Insurers (ABI) spokesman, said: “If in any doubt, double check with the comparison site or insurer concerned.”
