Car insurance premiums now falling, research says

The quarterly decrease in premiums, the first for over three years, meant that over a 12 month period the total rise in comprehensive premiums was 12.3%. For 2010 the research reported a 37.8% rise.

Confused and Towers Watson found, however that third party, fire and theft (TPFT) premiums rose by 2% between July and September 2011.

Accordingly in 12 months to the end of September comprehensive policies have risen by an average of £92 to £843, while TPFT premiums have risen by £192 to £1,155.
