Why it pays to shop around

Every year nearly a quarter (23%) of Brits ‘auto-renew’ their car insurance with their existing insurer, often at a higher premium than the year before.

In fact, being loyal to your provider by simply letting your policy roll over can cost you up to £113 more than if you shopped around for cover, according to MoneySuperMarket research.
