Motor insurance premiums are predicted to fall in the next quarter, according to car insurance search site, Confused.com.

The quote finder's 100% analysis of car insurers across the UK allowed them to provide 27,500 prices for 2,448 risks. This compared to 58 non-comparative risk assessments supplied by the AA, it claimed.

Confused.com, supported by brokers, Direct Choice, Quote-A-Car, Ladybird, Insure Your Motor and Endsleigh, carried out a wide-ranging evaluation of premiums.

In its first quarterly insurance price index study it showed that the UK average cost of car insurance increased by just 0.3% between May and June.

Confused.com managing director Kate Armstrong said of the almost stagnant market: "We expect this trend to continue, and believe that in the next quarter we could start to see the price of insurance actually come down."

The research also found Manchester had the most expensive average premium rate at £1,143 while Dundee had the cheapest at £595. The company claims it had helped to save money for approximately 50% of its quotable clients.
