    Of course they are, business is business though and they're in it to make money at the end of the day. Far too many 'claiming' that they have injuries is what is bumping it up also. My cousin is paying 3.5k on a 99 reg 1.2 Clio.

    Because of all the fraud, during a recession insurance claims go up. Therefore, so do premiums.

    Probably because a lot of people don't bother reporting theft from their vehicles as the police are next to flipping useless and the insurers are a pain in the backside so people take it on the chin rather than have the hassle

    This might be because of the increase in car security devices being installed in more and more numbers :blackrs4:
