In the first quarter of 2017, classic motor insurance premiums may have risen

Classic car insurance premiums may have gone up in Q1 of 2017.

In the first quarter of this year, fully comprehensive car insurance premiums for modern cars rose by an average of 0.7% per annum. That would appear to be a moderate increase although in the 12 months to the end of the first quarter of 2017 such cover rose by 12.9% – a significant increase that motorists could have done without.

The rise can be partly attributable to the change in the Ogden Discount Rate upon which compensation payouts are based. Increases in the Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) will also have had an impact on the cost of covering your classic car and there is nothing that can be done to avoid paying such a tax.
