The average comprehensive car insurance premium has fallen £53 since lockdown began, new research has revealed.

Car cover fell to £694 in August, following gradual decreases in July and June and it means they’ve fallen nearly 10 per cent since the coronavirus lockdown began, forcing drivers off the road and insurers to reflect that.

On a three month rolling basis, premiums have fallen to their lowest level since summer 2016, according to Compare the Market. 

Meanwhile, separate data shows that more motorists are shopping around online for finance deals rather than simply allowing dealerships to take charge.

5 Questions to Ask Before You Finance a Car

So, is it a good idea to finance your next car? Well, that depends. Think of auto financing as applying for a mortgage to pay off a new ride. This means you’ll live with it for the term of the loan which will likely take you into or through a life stage. So, you must ask yourself: Does it have space in the back for a stroller? Can you fold down the seats for hockey sticks or surfboards? Is there a third row to allow peace in a growing family? Does it have a backseat — or is this a mid-life crisis impulse?

If you know the answers to most of the questions above, consider taking the plunge. Financing makes the most sense if you want your car for the long haul. A lease ends when it ends, much like a car rental, but you’ll keep

Germany’s pandemic recovery raises age-old questions about European economy | Business| Economy and finance news from a German perspective | DW

In 1947, two years after the end of World War II, the European economy was in severe trouble. “We are threatened with total economic and financial catastrophe,” said then French Economy Minister Andre Philip in April that year.

There were many problems but the biggest was Germany. Two years after the Nazis had been defeated, Germany’s recovery had in many ways already been remarkable but economically it remained a basket case and Europe realized it needed its engine back. In part, the Marshall Plan’s purpose was to restore the German economy to the heart of Europe.

By the start of the 1950s, the European economy was in miracle territory but Germany’s miracle burned brightest. The next two decades were among the most prosperous in history.

Here in 2020, the European economy also finds itself at a pivotal and potentially perilous historical moment. The pandemic is ongoing and the economic recovery
