Car-Higher car insurance excesses bypass lower premiums

Submitted by on July 20, 2010 – 12:50 amNo Comment
Increasing the excess on a car insurance policy should lower the premium but new research from Which? Money suggests this is not always the case.

Having compared car insurance quotes from a range of providers, the consumer group discovered that raising the total excess on a quote from Aviva, from £350 to £550, actually increased the premium by 8%.

Which? Money was quoted £424 with a total excess of £350 but £458 with an excess of £550.

In the case of the AA, a similar rise had no effect on the premium, while for Budget, the Post Office and the RAC, raising the excess by £250 reduced premiums by a mere 1%, saving the consumer just £6.

Which? chief executive, Peter Vicary-Smith, says: “Common sense would suggest that if you increase your excess, you’d pay less for your policy, but we were surprised to find that some policies actually ended up costing more.”
