MoneytotheMasses.com was recently featured in a Daily Telegraph article highlighting how a simple trick, known as quote massaging, can cut over 25% off your car insurance premium.
Just changing how you describe your occupation can have a dramatic effect on the size of your car insurance premiums. It does seem strange, but it is a fact, that insurance companies can place as much emphasis on your occupation as they do your age, car and driving record.
We have reproduced the full research carried out at the request of the Daily Telegraph below to give you an idea of how a change in your occupation description can shave pounds of your premium.
It goes without saying that you cannot lie about what you do for a living but some research when classifying your occupation may well pay dividends. More on how to quote massage can be found in my new book - 30 Day Money Plan - Fix your finances in 5 minutes a day.
