Car insurance may increase as people spend more time driving
March 27, 2009
Many people could be discovering that the cost of their car insurance premium is increasing due to the amount of time they spend in their vehicle.
According to a survey by Admiral, one in five Londoners spend more time in their car than they do in their home.
It also seems as though driving can be the ideal opportunity for people to get some alone time, as 68 per cent admitted that they prefer driving when they do not have any passengers.
Men were also three times more likely than women to be in their car more than they were in their home.
Sue Longthorn, managing director of Admiral, said: "Drivers could be finding themselves spending so much time in the car because they have a long commute, or thanks to congestion on the UK’s busy roads."
In the past, the AA has warned motorists not to lie in an attempt to get cheaper car insurance.
