An Alliance MLA has called on all car insurers to refund premiums as the Covid-19 pandemic continues.
Andrew Muir, who represents North Down, said it was disappointing that not all car insurance providers had agreed to this.
“This is a tough financial time for so many and anything that can be done to alleviate that pressure should be pursued,” said Mr Muir.
“It’s clear that with only essential travel permitted, the number of journeys has drastically reduced and risk consequentially declined, while those customers who find themselves shielding as instructed may only need to retain certain elements of their policy.
"Neither of these scenarios matches the current premiums being paid with some companies currently pocketing the savings”.
The Alliance Party has written to the Association of British Insurers calling for urgent clarification or guidance on how a uniform approach can be put in place going forward.
