Insuring Drivers in 2012-A Year in Review

LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan 22, 2013) - QuoteMeToday, expert motor trade insurance brokers, have summarised 2012 as a significant year for the insurance industry. Car insurance premiums rose and records have been set for the high number of uninsured drivers in the UK.

QuoteMeToday recognised the high cost of running a vehicle by emphasising how shopping around for a cheap insurance policy can help minimise expenditure.

The cost of running a vehicle remained high in 2012 and the AA''s British Insurance Premium Index revealed that the highest car insurance premiums of the year were in July. Premiums have also doubled in the last four years and this has resulted in costly implications for commercial vehicle owners whose businesses may have been affected by the rise in costs.

Despite high costs, QuoteMeToday emphasised the importance of having a valid car insurance policy as the one-millionth uninsured car was seized by the police in August. The car was seized in Birmingham and QuoteMeToday assured motorists that commercial car insurance is necessary to avoid potential fines, penalty points, disqualifications and financial implications for your business.

A spokesperson from QuoteMeToday commented:

"The cost of running a vehicle reached new heights in 2012, but insurance is an essential legal requirement and business owners have a responsibility to protect their vehicles and employees while they are on the road. If vehicles are essential to your business, shop around for a good deal on your car insurance to help lessen the financial burden and find the right cover for your company."
