Methodology

All data is sourced from comparethemarket.com. When the “average price” is referred to, this is the mean average of the top five cheapest prices presented to a customer, where a consumer has clicked through to buy. Buying from the top five cheapest prices presented represents 90% of all car insurance sales.

When the “cheapest price” is referred to, this is the average cheapest price presented, where a customer has clicked through to buy. It calculates the cost of premiums where the customer has clicked through to buy the policy. If the average premium cost was instead calculated on the basis of all prices returned then the average cost would be significantly higher.

There may be results that appear out of the ordinary if we have a smaller number or enquires.
