Car Insurance Increasing by 13% per year.
Not all Car Insurance Premiums increase by the same figures, and there can be many reasons for premiums to change, but the following is for the same car, same address, and same age group.
The rise of 13% each year is much higher than the cost of living increases, which are under 2% each year.
I wonder if the cause is an increase in overall claims, or just higher charges from the repairers?
