Prior to the 67.2% rise, the previous record stood at 61%. The latter statistic was for the year to August 2023. On a quarterly basis, meanwhile, the climb in premiums was less steep – at 10.6% in the three months to November, compared to 22% in the three months to August.

Max Thompson, insurance insight manager at Consumer Intelligence, commented: “Record payouts for claims are having an impact on quoted premiums, and there is evidence that in certain areas, such as Scotland and the East Midlands, recent storms have had an impact on premiums.

“During the last quarter, small increases in telematics competitiveness were observed across all the age groups, of 1% to 2%. However, motorists across all age groups and all over the country are seeing major increases in quoted premiums.”

According to Consumer Intelligence data for November, 21% of quotes fell within the £500 to £749 price range.
