Premiums Could Be Five Percent Higher By End Of Year

Published: 8/1/2010

Admiral car insurance has warned car drivers that they could see their premiums 5 percent higher by the end of this year.

In the first half of the year insurance premiums have risen by around 2.5 percent according to data collated by Admiral, with a similar level of increase expected in the second half of the year. On the back of all the other price rises that are hitting consumers there appears to be no escape from rising costs.

What seems to be happening is that the cost of car insurance is going up even though the number of claims is relatively unchanged. Admiral suggest that it may be the increasing cost of repairs that is forcing premiums up.
