However, Go Compare says motorists can try and bring down costs by simply tweaking their new job title.
Analysis from the group has revealed drivers can save over £300 in some cases by simply changing the wording of their job.
Go Comapre’s Donna Ferguson said: “If I were to describe myself to my car insurer as a ‘writer’, data collected by GoCompare suggests I would pay £497 on average for my policy in 2018.
“But if instead, with perfect honesty, I describe myself as ‘journalist’, the average premium jumps to £610.
“So it looks like – at least in the eyes of insurers – writers as typically glued to their desks, while journalists often get up to all sorts of mischief outside the home.
