Commenting on the Budget, Simon McCulloch, Director, comparethemarket.com commented: “It feels like there was an opportunity missed in today’s Budget to make the cost of running a car more affordable – particularly for young drivers. Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) has been hiked three times in the past 18 months, adding an average of £109 to annual insurance costs. On top of this, we estimate recent changes to the Ogden discount rate could add almost another £60 on average, and a massive £107 for drivers under 25. As getting on the road becomes more and more expensive, we had hoped that Philip Hammond might have announced new measures to help motorists cut the costs, such as exempting young drivers from IPT, to avoid them being priced off the road, or even resorting to driving without insurance”.
