Issues covered in this Report
This Report analyses the private car insurance market in NI and RoI. This includes an analysis of the main drivers impacting upon the sector, together with an assessment of the size and direction of the market. In addition, drawing on extensive consumer research (Toluna, January 2018), this Report analyses the level of ownership of car insurance among Irish consumers, the type of insurance owned, the main providers of insurance to Irish consumers, the purchasing process, renewal behaviour, and general attitudes towards car insurance and car insurers.
Motor insurance includes cover for motor vehicles, including cars, motorcycles, vans, etc. This includes the following types:
- Third party – covers liability for injuries to other people (including passengers), damage to other people’s property, liability of passengers for accidents caused by them, and liability arising from use of a caravan or trailer.
- Third party, fire & theft – as above plus cover for fire damage and theft of vehicle.
- Comprehensive – is the most popular form of motor insurance and includes protection of the policyholder’s vehicle in addition to the cover available through a third party, fire & theft policy. Policies may also offer additional benefits such as medical expenses and legal costs.
Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Brian O'Connor, a leading analyst in the Automotive sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
Even though motor insurance premiums have largely moderated in NI and declined quite significantly in RoI over the past 12 months, the cost of car insurance remains far higher than it was even four or five years ago. RoI consumers, in particular, are unhappy with the cost of their car insurance. With loyalty towards car insurers already low, the environment is ripe for increased shopping around and switching activity.
