Shopping for a car insurance, health insurance or other insurance pays off, according to NMa research. On average, someone can save 121 euros on their car insurance. Moreover, a cheaper car insurance policy is just as good as an expensive car insurance policy. With a hull insurance, consumers are even less insured with more expensive car insurance than with cheap insurance. This is evident from earlier research by the independent comparator Hooms Insurance under 46 insurance policies.
Save 800 million euros on car insurance
Dutch consumers can save more than 800 million euros with their car insurance by switching to a cheaper car insurance policy. These consumers then maintain the same quality insurance, but switch to a cheaper one.
Relation price/quality car insurance
Hooms Insurance investigated the relationship between price and quality for almost all car insurers. The comparator has determined the average price position per insurer on the basis of approximately 10,000 visitor calculations. This figure is set against the average quality score of the coverages offered (WA, limited and full body).
New car insurance
In recent years, various car insurers have launched new labels, such as Wellsecure, Proself or Bulldo. These car insurance policies are cheaper. Eric Knapp of Hooms Insurance: “Car insurance companies hope to attract new customers with these new labels. It can therefore be advantageous for Dutch car owners to see if there is a cheaper and better car insurance policy for their car. People who have insured their car with the same insurer for more than two or three years can quickly save more than a hundred euros. In total there are around 6.8 million cars. If all these car owners switch, we all save 800 million euros. ”Compare car insurance Calculate car insurance
