    UK's car insurance premiums on the rise again.

    For those interested, here's a copy of an article we wrote for the Saab Owners Club GB magazine in early February about the potential for insurance premium increases across the whole market.

    "As we move into the year we know that Article 50 will be invoked by the PM and negotiations for our exit from the EU will begin. The EU has been blamed for much of the heavy regulation we see in UK industry. However, without influence from Europe, changes to personal injury claims are likely following a recent review by our own Ministry of Justice (MoJ) that will impact the current easy target – the motorist.

    The government has already increased Insurance Premium Tax to 12% (effective from 1st June this year) and the proposed amendments to injury pay-outs are tipped to increase insurance costs further, particularly for those of us driving on the UK’s roads.

    Currently, when a personal injury award is made the total is discounted by a factor (known as the Ogden Rate) to account for the expected additional return when the lump sum is invested by the recipient. We’re considering sums here that are awarded to cover loss of earnings, increased life-long care costs for someone majorly affected by an accident or even death. The Ogden Rate is designed to ensure that someone is not under- or over-compensated. At the moment this discount rate is set at 2.5% and it has been at this level since 2001.

    The MoJ wants to reduce the discount rate to reflect the current interest rates, meaning that an insurer’s share of any pay-out would increase. The industry body, the Association of British Insurers (ABI), launched a legal challenge to the MoJ’s review in December on the basis that there has not been proper consultation but the High Court rejected the ABI’s concerns. ABI representatives say the reduction comes “at a time of significant global financial uncertainty” and one insurer’s analysis suggests that a 1% decrease in the Ogden Rate would wipe £190 million off its profits. Does this mean that insurers will want to pass on the costs to the policyholder? Most probably.

    A decision is imminent, though the 30th January deadline has already been missed and an announcement has been promised, by the Lord Chancellor, for February. One thing’s for sure, this is a hot topic in the industry at the moment and the ramifications for insurers and, potentially, car insurance purchasers are greater than even the tax rise and the MoJ’s whiplash reforms."


    On February 27th the Ogden Rate was indeed reduced, from 2.5% to -0.75%. The drop was much bigger than the industry expected and shares in motor insurance firms plummeted on announcement. It now looks like our prediction was correct and rates are beginning to rise across the board.

    Rest assured, at Chris Knott Insurance we'll still be doing all we can to find you the best car insurance deals out there. As your existing provider increases their rates please call us to see if we can offer you something better under our privileged club/forum scheme for enthusiasts.

    QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274

    Please mention this club/forum or its unique code when you call to ensure you receive the full benefits of the club scheme.

    best,
    Nick

    PS. As an aside, there is equal implication for the NHS as medical malpractice claims also use the Ogden Rate to calculate compensation.

    Hi,

    The BBC News website reports:
    "Drivers saw their car insurance premiums rise by an average of £110 in the last year, a comparison site says. More expensive repairs and recent government changes to injury payouts pushed up annual insurance costs by 16%, according to Confused.com. It found drivers paid on average £781 on comparison sites for a comprehensive policy in the year to March 2017. Average premiums are set to rise to a record high and could pass £1,000 next year, it added. Newer vehicles have seen some of the biggest rises, because their increasingly complex electronics have made repairs more expensive...

    ...The Confused [dot] com research...checks more than four million car insurance quotes."


    I just wanted to let you know that the Chris Knott average premium through the club insurance scheme is much lower than that reported on the comparison sites.

    In March 2016, Chris Knott's average premium was less than half that at £369. This March (2017) it was £399 - just a £30 increase and still majorly more economical than £781. There's definitely something beneficial for members in using the club scheme through Chris Knott then.

    QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - please call us at renewal.

    If that's before 1st June you'll also gain entry in the Chris Knott 'British F1 Grandstand Tickets' Prize Draw.

    best,
    Nick

    Recent testimonials from CK customers across the car enthusiast community...

    "£367 cheaper than my renewal from flux, £65 cheaper with no limited mileage & all mods covered after shopping around. I am a happy bunny thanks." G30001, R32 Owners Club

    "Had my quote matched today so new CK customer on Saturday as of renewal time. Covers all the mods that are planned from the stockpile of parts in the garage that have been collected over the last few months... Spoken to 3 different ladies (Tabitha, Kathy (of Legend) and Rebecca) and the level of customer service has been consistently brilliant with everything being understood first hand and not needing to explain what each mod is." benmellor, GT86/BRZ Drivers Club

    "Thank you Daryl for matching a cheaper quote from another insurance company. Guess I will be staying with Chris Knott for another year. " Jon Dixon, Facebook

    "I may need to hop back to chris knott insurance when my renewal comes through early next month, made the mistake of hopping over to a cheaper provider who has extortionate admin fees." sliced, Audi-Sport.net

    "Recently taken a policy out with Chris Knott due to the very competitive quote. I needed to call them to change my reg number as I added my private plate to my car, I braced myself for the "well there's a charge for this and a charge for that" as experienced from other insurance companies, but no! Gave them the new number and that was that, no charge! Well done, credit where it's due!! stchris356, BimmerForums

    Chris Knott - great prices AND service...

    Thank you to everyone who took up new policies with Chris Knott in April - our best month so far this year - you helped us reach 114% of our target! We're genuinely grateful for your custom.

    Our retention of existing clients at renewal was also much higher than expected in April. Evidence that we do have the great rates available for car club/forum members and enthusiasts that we claim.

    Here's what a couple of club members said:
    "It just gets better. My documents arrived today and my premium is only £300.50 which is £10 cheaper than I was quoted." CiderFex, New Mini Scotland forum

    "Hello, I've just just got my Civic insured with Chris Knott. They [quoted] me £200 less than my renewal quote and £20.75 off the next best quote. I'm well happy." YonderBen, CivInfo

    "Chris Knott beat my *** renewal majorly. And by that I mean it was half the price!" rob275, GT86/BRZ Drivers Club

    Please give us a call if your car insurance is due in the coming days and find out how much you can save by switching to Chris Knott.

    Remember, if you request a quote up to 31st May 2017 you'll gain automatic entry in our prize draw to WIN 2x 2017 British F1 Grandstand Tickets for Silverstone (with parking). You'll also qualify if you're an existing client with a renewal due during the qualification period.

    We can quote upto 30 days ahead, so even if you're due in June we can quote you before the closing date.

    QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - please mention this forum when you call for your quote.

    best,
    Nick


    PS. When we give you a good quote it doesn't mean we're sacrificing on quality or service. Members are happy with our service too:

    "Morning guys, just wanted to say thank you to Kathy for her amazing service when quoting me for insurance. The quality of knowledge and friendliness was really refreshing, especially after dealing with my current insurer and others. I am just awaiting a call back to finish of the deal. Could you pass on my thanks and praise." Carta, FiestaSTOC

    "Chris Knott - Brilliant Service. Just got off the phone with Chris Knott Insurance and was really really surprised at how pleasant an experience the whole process was!! So a big thanks to them and the forum code no doubt helped as I got cover for my 'new to me' '59 beetle for £77 fully comp inc agreed value. Well happy!" SimonRev, Volkszone

    "I would also like to add my thanks for the excellent service I have received over the last few years." Mr T Bodill, CivInfo

    "Just renewed with @ChrisKnottIns and I suggest you do too! Great service and price plus you can speak to a real person!" @Neil_Sealy, Twitter

    Gumball 3000, expertise and a Chris Knott partner...

    Hi,

    I thought some of you might like to see this interesting vid featuring one of the insurers we use to underwrite the club's car insurance scheme - ERS.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iP7Bvq2-uVU

    Gumball 3000 organisers were looking for a specialist insurer to underwrite this year's event - a motor risk that includes Saudi princes, oligarchs and celebrities, driving prestige cars and imported vehicles worth over £30 million on a 3,000 mile journey through 10 countries. Most insurers ran a mile.

    ERS got under the skin of one of the world's most unique motor risks to underwrite the Gumball 3000 rally.

    You'll see Chris Knott has*partnered with insurers who, like us, know what they're doing when it comes to assessing motor risks, are proper car enthusiasts and take great effort to understand the needs of those they're covering.

    ERS has long respected the work we're doing with car club members and will help us to win your business when you ask us to quote for your car at the next renewal.

    Please give us a call in the mix when searching for quotes and we'll help you find the best insurance deal this year.

    QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - remember to mention this club/forum to access all the benefits.

    Recent testimonials...

    "I just wanted to send you a message to say many thanks to CK Insurance and Tabitha especially who dealt with my initial query and quotation. Today I have taken out my car insurance with yourselves and it was a nice experience all-round. Tabitha was professional and easy to speak to and answered all the questions I had relating to the cover. I'll definitely recommend others to try you for a quote. You saved me over £375 compared to my renewal quote with *******, and now a chance of F1 tickets! Superb." ZakR, BabyBMW forum

    "Just saved £210 on my 9-5 and £167 on my 9-3 Many thanks Chris Knott." zagato, UKSaabs forum

    "My last insurance wouldn't cover brake or suspension mods even though they would make the car handle better, but would insure exhaust and air intakes, which sort of add more performance. Anyway, I found Chris Knott were best for me. Club Sponsor." Dan France-Athayde, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club UK

    "Just called up for a quote. Doing it all by phone is beautifully antiquated. However, there was a refreshing degree of honesty with the process. In my case they COULD match any sensible quote and were honest that if I wanted the bare minimum I might be able to get it marginally cheaper but highlighted the coverage differences. The breakdown cover similarly has some pretty good terms for the price. Waiting on my old insurer (£650 more expensive) to post out the paperwork." Cyber_hawk, Z4 Forum

    "I have my 480 on classic car insurance through Chris Knott this year; a better package than the previous one I had through ****** **** (in particular the insurance company in question is UK based and well known, as against Gibraltar based and completely unknown to me) and significantly cheaper. And I was very impressed with the service!" dcw, Volvo Owners Club

    Testimonials
    Fresh feedback received from car club members recently:

    "Got a good quote from you guys this year on the M3 cheaper than anyone else (price matched) like others have said a fair amount of paperwork to send off but it's not too bad to be honest and I found the staff to be very helpful too. Thumbs up from me a happy customer for the year." hopz121, Z4 Forum

    "Superb service, more than fair prices after a haggle and its lovely to talk to a person in this country... Been with them about 10 years looking after most of our insurance!" Nick Walton, Multipla Owners Club

    "Well that's me signed up for another year. Nobody could get close this year, well done CK." riven1962, C4 Owners Club

    "I was involved in a no fault accident last year and expected my renewal to go up to stupid money, even though it wasn't my fault. Was really surprised with the quote and have now renewed for another year. Great service received, hope to be with you for many years to come. Cheers." ChrisG, Audi-Sport.net

    "Quick and easy Insurance. Just renewed my annual insurance and was fed up with premiums increasing each year so I rang Chris Knott. Service was easy and quick and they managed to reduce my premium compared to other companies. Docs arrived on e-mail very quickly and once I had paid and provided proof of current NCB I had a nice tag to attach to my car keys so if they are lost they can be returned swiftly."
