Ursula Gibbs, director at Compare the Market said “lots of factors” affected car insurance prices.

She said everything from engine size to repair costs and security features could impact the overall cost of vehicles.

She said: “Car insurance is usually one of the most expensive running costs for drivers, so most will be relieved that premiums are cheaper than last year.

“However, many drivers might fail to take advantage of these savings if they simply auto-renew their insurance with their current provider.
