The weather is all we're hearing about on the news at the moment and so it's perhaps no surprise that many Brits are in the market for a 'snow mobile'.

Over one million car insurance searches on a car insurance comparison site shows an increase in those looking to insure a 4x4 vehicle since the snow started falling last week.

In fact, between the 5th and 10th January, searches for 4x4 car insurance were up by nearly a half compared to the same period in December.

A spokesperson from the comparison site says: "It is understandable after seeing more snow than usual in such a short period of time people may be thinking about preparing themselves against any further snowy conditions that are on the way, or indeed, if snow filled winters are to be a regular occurrence in the future.

However, when we do suffer from such severe snow and ice causing treacherous driving conditions the advice is generally to stay off the roads entirely. Having a more able vehicle for driving in the snow is not a guarantee that your journey would be any safer or less eventful when faced with such unpredictable driving conditions."ADNFCR-3010-ID-19554383-ADNFCR
