Irish car owners 'leaving money on the table' by not shopping around for insurance

Update 11.20am: We need to shop around for better prices for motor insurance.

That is according to an AA survey of over 4,000 car owners which found less than 6 in 10 motorists check for better prices.

AA Director of Consumer Affairs, Conor Faughnan, warns you could be leaving money on the table.

He said: "Anywhere between 15-20% fewer people are shopping around this year and that is not wise.

"It does pay to make those phone calls, go on those websites and see if a better deal can be got.

"If you don't shop around, chances are you're missing out."

Earlier: Irish motorists believe the Government does not care about them - Report

A new report shows Irish motorists believe the Irish Government does not care about them.

A survey of over 4,000 car owners by AA Car Insurance, found that 66% of Irish motorists do not think our politicians are taking the problem of high insurance premiums seriously enough.

The AA's Director of Consumer Affairs, Conor Faughnan, says there is a growing sense of frustration.

He said: "The Government have a good plan on paper but they need to implement it.

"I think people have gotten used to super high premiums and the energy that was behind the reforms that we were looking for seem to have dissipated to everybody's frustration."
