Superstitious Drivers Seek Assurance With Insurance at comparethemarket.com

September 7, 2012

LONDON, September 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

With the introduction of the ‘unlucky 13′ number plate from next March, superstitious
drivers should head to comparethemarket.com [http://www.comparethemarket.com/car-insurance
] to find peace of mind with a good deal on their car insurance.

From March 2013, all new vehicles will carry the number 13 on their plates. Research
by the AA has revealed that up to one in three drivers are afraid to buy a car with the
‘unlucky’ number plate, fearing that it will attract bad luck on the road.[1]

Short of paying for a personalised registration, there is not much that new car owners
can do to avoid the ‘unlucky 13.’ Superstitious drivers should make sure they have
adequate insurance cover, drive more carefully and hope for the best, as a lucky rabbit’s
foot is not scientifically proven to reduce risk.

Simon McCulloch, Director of Insurance at comparethemarket.com said: “Whether you are
superstitious or not, it is worth ensuring you have adequate protection should the worst
happen. With so many great deals on comparethemarket.com, it’s easy for drivers to find
the right insurance. We offer very competitive quotes from across the majority of the
market so there’s no reason to feel unlucky when it comes to paying for car insurance.”

with an easy way to find the right deal on a wide range of insurance and financial
products, including home insurance, van insurance, bike insurance, life insurance, pet
insurance and credit cards. It also offers comparisons for a range of household utilities,
