Online car insurance comparison site Tiger.co.uk recently reported that customers looking for discount car insurance quotes can still find some affordable rates, even when insurance price inflation has been running in excess of 30 per cent over the past 12 months. Of the 60 per cent that saved, over half of them had saved at least £50, according to the survey.
The survey, which polled shoppers who had purchased a policy through the comparison site during the months of August and September of this year, asked how much savings they made versus their renewal quote. The survey, which is part of a regular feedback poll in order to continuously improve the website, also asked shoppers about how quick and easy it was to use the site in comparison to similar comparison websites.
Tiger.co.uk’s monthly insurance price monitor, Tiger Watch, found that while year-on-year inflation is still running high, insurance premium prices remained relatively flat in August 2011. This led UK drivers to breathe a sigh of relief at gaining some breathing room, if only for a short period of time.
One comparison site spokesperson commented on the research findings, stating that the site was quite proud of the results of the survey. The provision of discount car insurance quotes to its shoppers while the rest of the market is becoming increasingly costly is something the comparison site should be proud of, the spokesperson also said.
Tiger.co.uk, which has three providers of telematics insurance on its panel, are committed to introducing new insurers in an effort to offer a varied range of brands to provide for the needs of drivers in the UK, the spokesperson also said.
