The personal lines insurance market has reached a level where products are priced at such a low rate that shopping around for better deals – which is common across the four main product categories (motor, home, travel, and pet) – is becoming a thankless task with limited benefits. Intense competition has driven rates down to a level where switching provider is beginning to offer little in terms of cost savings. As a result, automatic renewals have increased in most distribution channels and product categories. This trend is set to continue unless a hardening of rates is brought about or capacity is reduced.


Key Findings

• Almost half of policies across all of the personal lines markets are distributed through the direct channel.

• Price comparison site usage has fallen but they remain an important port of call for customers – whether for research, quote comparison, or regular sales purposes.

• The online channel remains important to consumers purchasing personal lines as the use of digital devices has become ubiquitous and internet usage gains in popularity.
