In comparative terms at the end of 2008 the average UK car insurance policy cost £450, with the average quote last month standing at £507. The recent arctic weather conditions have caused an increase in accidents and car insurance claims, leading to brokers reacting to the increased risk on the motorways.
Nevertheless, experts maintain that UK drivers will still be able to find competitive rates to insure their vehicle.
An insurance expert at Think Money said: "The average car insurance policy may have risen considerably over the last year, but that doesn`t mean that motorists won`t be able to find a good deal. It`s well worth taking the time to search around for the best quote – but motorists must make sure that this covers everything they need.
"The best way to bring down insurance costs is to drive safely and build a good history – but finding the right deal could bring that price down further."
