AA director admits surprise as household premiums fall

Since the flooding of July last year, the average premium quoted for buildings cover has risen by only about £13, or 6.7%, considerably less than some commentators predicted.

However, average quoted premiums for both contents and combined (buildings and contents) insurance fell. Contents premiums dropped by nearly £5 or 4.2% over the past quarter while £6 (1.9%) was wiped from the average quoted premium for combined buildings and contents policies.
