John Duffy: Consumer NZ CEO on the increasing costs of car insurance

View descriptionShare

Owning a car is getting more and more expensive. 

Online Insurance Platform Quashed reported a 40% increase in average comprehensive and third-party quotes over the last year.  

Stats NZ is reporting a 22.6% overall. 

Consumer NZ CEO John Duffy told Mike Hosking that there’s a lot of causes behind this, but a big one is unforeseen weather events such as Cyclone Gabrielle. 

He said that insurers are seeing that that kind of event could happen again, and are updating their pricing accordingly.
