Car insurance prices could be about to get a lot cheaper for UK drivers

Anybody who owns a car will know that insurance can be seriously costly – especially when you can’t benefit from new customer discounts.

But under new proposals by the City regulator, home and motor insurance customers should pay no more when renewing their policy than they would if they were new to their provider.

It means that for existing consumers, their renewal price would be no higher than the equivalent new-business price.

However, with firms being unable to charge renewing customers more than new customers in future under the plans, it could mean the disappearance of some ultra-cheap deals from the market.

The proposals, made by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), would apply through the same sales channel.

For example, if the customer bought the policy online, they would be charged the same price as a new customer buying online.

Rental car tips: How to find the best prices during covid-19

For many Americans, embarking on road trips has been a way to keep traveling during the pandemic. And if you’re not a car owner, now may be a good time to rent one.

According to data from CheapCarRental.net, a car-rental comparison engine, road trip travel is up, but the travel industry as a whole is still hurting. As a result, rental car rates in the United States are down by between 15 and 40 percent, depending on the region.

Unlike airplane tickets that can change in price by the minute, the price of renting a car isn’t a mystery.

“Between now and Christmas, your flight might change a hundred times,” says Liana Corwin, the travel expert for Hopper, the flight and hotel booking app. “With car rentals, they’re a little bit more static.”

While renting a car isn’t complicated, there is legwork to get the best deal. Here are tips

Car and home insurers face ban on hiking prices for existing customers at renewal

What is the regulator proposing?

The FCA says its study of the insurance market shows that a customer with typical risk who has been with their insurance provider for more than five years pays an average of £85 extra for car insurance and £108 extra for home insurance compared to a new customer. Some 10 million car and home insurance policies are held by people who have been with their provider for five years or more.

The regulator also found some firms target price increases on customers who are less likely to switch, and can use practices that make it harder to leave.

Here are the key reforms proposed by the FCA:

  • Car and home insurers would need to offer existing customers a renewal price that’s no higher than they would offer a new customer using the same sales channel. If a firm wants to increase prices for its existing

Used car prices surge as consumer prices rise 0.4% in August

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. consumer prices rose 0.4% in August as used car prices surged by the largest amount in 51 years, the Labor Department reported Friday.

The August increase in the consumer price index reflected some moderation following big gains of 0.6% in both June and July as the pace of energy price gains slowed.

However, there were still areas that showed bigger price increases, led by a 5.4% jump in used car prices, the biggest monthly gain since March 1969. New car prices were unchanged in August but analysts predict prices are likely to rise in coming months, reflecting supply shortages. Motor vehicle production closed completely during the spring as the pandemic shut down wide swaths of the economy.

Other big gains were seen in household furnishings, which jumped 0.9%, the largest monthly increase since February 1991. Prices of furniture, bedding and appliances all showed big gains.
