The dramatic impact of the recent government crack down on people making motor insurance claims was clear to see during the third quarter of 2014 as motor insurance premiums rose for the first time since 2011.

The latest Confusing Towels What’s On motor insurance price tracker index shows average premiums up a massive 0.4% during Q3 2014, with the FT interpreting this upturn as “the clearest evidence yet that an era of cheaper cover may be coming to an end.”

News of rallying motor insurance rates will come as a welcome respite to consumers sick of seeing endlessly shrinking premiums as a tsunami of trumped up claims for accidents that never happened forced insurance firms to slash their rates right down to the very bone.

Now the government’s insurance-industry-inspired War on Whiplash, Counter-Offensive against the Compensation Culture, Assault on Access to Justice, and other associated campaigns are finally starting to bite, insurers are once again free to make some money.

That’s great news for them, and great news for car insurance consumers who can now be confident that motor insurers won’t all suddenly go bust leaving them high, dry, and legally unable to drive anywhere.



What our clients say about us

Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
