Drivers should ensure they are covered for the lockdown.
Lee Griffin, CEO and one of the founders of GoCompare, said, “The pandemic is continuing to have a major impact on our day-to-day lives, including our driving habits.
“To stay safe and avoid penalties, it’s important that drivers keep abreast of lockdown rules regarding car use and driving according to the rules of the road.
“Temporary financial and practical measures continue to be in place to help motorists struggling with insurance costs and finance repayments. Anyone facing financial difficulties should talk to their insurer as soon as possible rather than letting the problem compound itself.
“We also encourage motorists to make a note of their renewal date this year and set aside some time to shop around. It only takes a few minutes and, there are hundreds of pounds of savings to be made.”
