I subscribe to €1 the 1st month

Fthanks to rising fuel prices and the ongoing inflationary crisis, any savings are good to have, but they can sometimes be risky. According to a survey carried out by the online insurance company Leocare, which RTL was able to consult, more than one in four French people (27%) with a car say they are ready to stop paying car insurance.

A figure that rises significantly among young drivers under the age of 35, 40% of whom are considering not having car insurance. Furthermore, this survey highlights that only one in five drivers over the age of 50 say they are ready not to subscribe to it. As our colleagues remind us, driving on the roads without insurance is an offense punishable by a fine of up to €3,750.

Currently, more than 800,000 French people drive without insurance. A trend that can be explained above all by the constant price increases that the sector imposes on consumers. According to Christophe Dandois, who heads the insurance company Leocare, this price explosion is also here to stay. “For next year, in light of developments in the price of raw materials, repair costs, the expected increase is between 4 and 6%”, he predicts. A situation that can cause other drivers to go without insurance.
