Car insurance: 'Help is available for older motorists'

Wednesday, 04 March 2009

Older motorists, especially those with certain medical conditions, who find it difficult to secure car insurance have been advised there is help at hand.

According to the British Insurance Brokers' Association (Biba), it has been able to assist tens of thousands of drivers in finding suitable cover.

The group issued this statement in light of a report from the Association of British Insurers (ABI) called Age and Insurance: Helping older customers find the cover they need.

Graeme Trudgill, technical and corporate affairs executive, said: "Biba will continue to work with the government, the ABI, the age charities and other stakeholders to ensure a fairer system for older people in the forthcoming Equality Bill."

Motorists struggling to find cover may benefit from contacting Biba's consumer helpline.

However, many older drivers may find they are able to secure cheap car insurance online, as they are generally considered to be a lower risk than their younger counterparts.
