Someone’s job is one of the most important factors in determining a road user’s average car insurance cost.

According to uSwitch, occupations considered low-risk will more likely result in cheaper insurance.

Vanarama analysed the data by putting together an average driver profile across a range of different job titles.

The group found that average car insurance costs were set for a “substantial” rise across the board within months.

They explained: “Stepping back and examining the anticipated insurance premium increases on an individual job basis reveals that, on the whole, the United Kingdom will experience a substantial 42 percent spike in insurance costs in 2024 compared to the previous year.

“When we shift our attention to the sector level, prices exhibit a slightly smaller but still significant increase of 41 percent from the preceding year.

“The average cost of UK car insurance in 2024 is now £613.91 per year – an 81 percent increase on 2020’s figure, £339.16.”
