Understanding insurance premiums

Helpful information

The facts about insurance prices

Nobody likes paying more for the same thing. So we want to help you understand just what makes up the cost of insuring your car, home and contents. And why the cost of this cover changes.

Our strong underwriting and pricing disciplines mean you pay a fair price for your insurance cover. But because we constantly review our pricing, your premium could change every year based on a number of reasons.

At the moment there are two main factors impacting the price you pay – an increase in the number of claims we’re receiving and an increase in the average cost per claim.
