Do You Switch To Save On Your Insurance Cover

switching-insurersAccording to a recent report by the national consumer agency only 25% of Irish consumers have switched their car insurance recently. The ease with which you, the consumer, can shop around for different cover has made making your choice of cover providers a lot simpler.

Speaking about the new research, Fergal Lynch, Head of Marketing for Chill said;

"We are delighted to hear the results of this research and that more consumers are actively searching for new providers in an attempt to get the best service, product and price. We have been championing shopping around for some time now and have seen a huge surge in consumers wanting to get the right policy at the right price."

About The Research

Carried out between 30th June and 13th July 2014 this is the 13th running of the National Consumer Agency review of consumer behaviour in relation to switching products and service providers.

Car insurance is among the most popular switches being made among the respondents with 25% of those 999 surveyed stating that they had switched car insurance providers and 13% saying they have switched home insurance providers since the last report was released. Service providers are making the switching process as stress and hassle free as possible with 76% of those surveyed reporting that they found the switching process easy. It is now becoming easier for you, the consumer, to search the market to see if you can make savings.

There is some merit in searching the market to see what you might be able to save if you did switch. For instance those people, who were surveyed, that did choose to switch from their original car insurance providers to a new one saved on average €180 (€15 a month) a year while those who switched home insurers saved €156 (€13 a month) on average a year.
