Watchdog in survey of high driver insurance
Published 27/08/2014 | 02:30
The Consumer Council has launched a survey to discover how much people in Northern Ireland are paying for their car insurance.
This is in advance of the Competition and Markets Authority report on their investigation into the private motor insurance market due to be published next month.
Eimear Duffy, policy officer for money affairs at the Consumer Council, said: "We continue to monitor the car insurance market and consumers' views on the cost of their car insurance in Northern Ireland. We are keen to gather as much information as possible, given that Northern Ireland was recently quoted as the second most expensive region in the UK for car insurance premiums.
"We are calling on all drivers to complete the survey; it takes just one minute. This will help to shape the Consumer Council's ongoing work following the completion of the Competition and Markets Authority investigation."
The survey closes on Friday September 19. To complete, visit www.consumercouncil.org.uk and click on the link 'Car Insurance Survey'.
