ABI welcomes Government statement on age and insurance


The ABI welcomes today's policy statement by the Government Equalities Office that a competitive market for motor and travel insurance exists for consumers of all ages.


Maggie Craig, Acting Director General of the ABI, said:


"The insurance industry is committed to providing competitive insurance  for people of all ages. The Government's own research shows that motor and travel insurance is available to all age groups.


"However, we recognise that some older people may experience difficulty

 finding the motor and travel insurance policies that are available to them. So we   are developing a signposting solution that will direct older people to those insurers who can meet their insurance needs. We are keen to work with Government and age charities to ensure that this delivers real benefits to consumers."
