There are certain traditions at Christmas we all enjoy, like eating Turkey. Well, you can now add searching for cheap car insurance to the list.
That’s right, because according to new statistics there was an estimated 250,000 people in the UK who went online to get a car insurance quote. You would think everyone would be way too busy doing things like watching TV, but these numbers suggest otherwise.
Interestingly, Boxing Day is even more busy for car insurance, with an estimated 300,000 people in the UK searching around for a new policy for their car or to renew an existing one.
Siet Back, Relax and Find Cheaper Car Insurance
It doesn’t surprise me really, because although these two days are supposed to be a time for relaxing with your family and friends, it’s now so quick and easy to get cheap car insurance quotes online that it can often be done in under 5 minutes.
All you have to do is fill in one simple form and that’s it. A comparison website will then take your details and instantly pass them on to major insurance companies, and then you start getting quotes right away.
Some car insurance companies and websites even have Apps to make the process even easier, which means you can then tap a few buttons to get a quote.
I imagine that a lot of people were getting quotes in between the starter and main course at Christmas dinner. It really is that quick.
There is also the fact that we are now busier than ever before, so Christmas Day and Boxing Day is often the only two days that people get off work over the holiday. This gives them a chance to get important things done like renewing car insurance with the cheapest quote possible.
Insuring Your Christmas Present
Also, let’s not forget that some lucky people get brand new cars as gifts on Christmas Day, and one of the first things they want to do is make sure it gets properly insured.
There is also the unlucky people who have their cars broken into and stolen over Christmas but then find their current insurance policy doesn’t cover them for as much as they thought. When this happens, new car insurance is typically a priority.
I think this is something we are going to be seeing more of at Christmas as people become comfortable using their phones to access the internet, where they can then search for cheap car insurance.
