Confused.com is reminding drivers that if they change their job significantly then
they will need to let their insurer know, and it may save money if the individual's
new role is statistically less risky.
Gareth Kloet, Head of car insurance at Confused.com said: "The cost of insurance is
calculated on different factors such as the type of car you drive, the area you live
and your own driving history as well as statistics for others of a similar
demographic to yourself. This does not mean that every airline captainwill be
landing a cheap deal -each individual will be quoted on their own data- but your
profession can significantly affect your insurance cost so if you change jobs it’s
worth letting your insurer know. Contributing factors will include the type of car
you choose to drive, the average age of people with that profession and of course
your claims history as a driver.
"Regardless of your profession, it's always advisable to use a trusted comparison
site such as Confused.com to get yourself the most competitive quote you can."
