Current price trends for drivers - who's saving the most?

In July 2016, we published the latest update to the Confused.com car insurance price index, our quarterly analysis of comprehensive insurance policy pricing in the UK.

The Q2 2016 update shows the largest average increase in comprehensive premiums since 2011.

The average quoted premium for an annual comprehensive car insurance policy now stands at £715, an increase of 19% year-on-year.

This is an annual increase of a staggering £115 on motorists' premiums, making it more important than ever to shop around and compare prices.
