Many insurers are failing to offer drivers cheaper car insurance for vehicles fitted with a dashcam.
Dashcam sales are at an all-time high as more motorists install the recording devices in their cars that can settle disputes and supposedly drop insurance premiums.
Research by Smartdriverclub – a blackbox provider – has found that some of the biggest names in car insurance do not offer discounts for cars fitted with a dashcam.
Study also found that just one price comparison site – Confused.com – allows motorists to say whether they have a dashcam when researching premiums.
Recently with research by Moneysupermarket.com that average insurance premiums have dropped in the first quarter of 2018. At the end of December 2017, average premiums were £574.11, with the average price of insurance at the end of March being £504 – a noticeable drop of £70.
This drop-in premium is thought to be a result of the increased safety technology being fitted to most new cars. Unfortunately, drivers aged 17 to 19 are still being penalised, with premiums for new motorists rising by 1.21 per cent.
