Good news! The OFT have provisionally asked the Competition Commission to investigate the 'dysfunctional' car insurance market.
They've found evidence that suggests anti-competitive behaviour between insurers is driving up the cost of premiums by around £225 million each year, not exactly an insignificant amount!
Specifically, it's the way in which claims by 'not-at-fault drivers' are dealt with that the OFT will ask the Competition Commission to look at.
It seems it's become customary for 'not at fault' insurers to arrange for inefficient repairs to be carried out by a costly garages and to refer policyholders to expensive hire car companies. This inflates the cost to their competitor and in doing so forces them to drive up their premiums!
Of course, this increased cost is passed on to their customers - simply put the OFT's findings suggest that drivers are being taken for a ride!
The consultation will close on the 6th July when the OFT will come to a decision about whether Competition Commission involvement is necessary. Rest assured we'll be letting you know the outcome!
