Whats Happening With Car Insurance?

So is there anything be done to protect the consumer?

There will be no dramatic lowering of car insurance costs as part of the Government’s attempts to address spiraling premiums, Minister of State at the Department of Finance Eoghan Murphy has said.

Doesn’t sound like it!!!

Is there anyone trying to have their voice heard?

Groups including the Anti-Austerity Alliance-People Before Profit have organised a protest outside Leinster House to coincide with the debate.

The demonstration will also feature representatives from student and taxi drivers’ groups, who have campaigned against rising insurance costs.

If it is getting this far surely there will have to be an investigation in the industry, a legitimate one at least.

Any horror Stories?

When someone rings up and quoted €6,000 or told to buy a newer car, that is not a sustainable way for the insurance industry to work.

“We don’t have the money to go around buying newer cars. If our cars are NCT’d and safe enough to be on the road they should be good enough to insure.

They’re taking the piss now
