A third of motorists lie to get cheaper car insurance 0


The study, commissioned by Servicing Stop, found that 33% of motorists will lie to get cheaper car insurance and a further 11% will drive without a valid MOT to save money. Another 7% would happily go without insurance altogether if it meant saving a few pennies.

The survey asked motorists how they plan to save money as home and car premiums increase by an average of £51, following the announcement of the budget.

More shocking perhaps was the revelation that 74% of motorists are concerned by the hike in insurance premiums and 47% of young people aged 18 to 29 would resort to extreme measures in order to defeat it. Almost a quarter of this age group said they would keep a minor accident secret, while 12% admitted lying about where their vehicle is parked overnight. A further 12% admitted lying about their job title.

Oly Richmond, CEO and founder of Servicing Stop said: “Over the last two years, the tax rate on home and motor insurance premiums has doubled and it is very likely motorists will face further hikes, as insurers raise premiums this year. We understand how expensive owning a car can be which is why we offer unbeatable prices and a price-match guarantee.

“The best course of action is for motorists to shop around to make savings across all their motoring costs.  At Servicing Stop, we make MOT and servicing affordable but still offer the same quality service.  Our vision is to improve the car servicing industry – to make car servicing convenient, affordable and trusted.
