As we move into the peak season for motor insurance purchases and renewals, the latest opinion on the  are cash strapped Brits cutting back on car cover’ debate comes from young at heart insurer Saga.

Its researchers have uncovered the disturbing news that 27% of motorists are taking steps to reduce the cost of their policies ‚ “whilst ensuring they are legally covered” the insurer adds diplomatically.

Falling into the US-led misconception that savvy must be an adjective because it ends in y, the insurer claims that almost one in ten “money-savvy motorists” have increased their voluntary excess to reduce their premium. Though this savvy may seem less impressive should they actually need to make a claim, if you savvy what I mean!

A similar percentage, or so the Saga survey claims, have switched to something with a smaller engine, thus showing more savvy still by slashing fuel bills as well as insurance costs.

To get this good takes A GAS!


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
