Ele Clark, Senior Money Editor at Which?, said:
“With the cost of living crisis biting, these jumps in home and car insurance premiums will be unwelcome for many households that may already be struggling with soaring energy bills and food price increases.
“Customers should try to negotiate a cheaper insurance price – it can be as simple as ringing your insurer up and asking if they can do better than the renewal offer, and giving examples of deals you’ve seen elsewhere.
“Anyone who’s unhappy with how their insurer has handled a claim should always shop around. You can save hundreds of pounds by switching insurers, while getting the right cover to suit your needs.”
