Car insurer Direct Line is offering customers the chance to pay for their annual premium in monthly instalments at no extra cost for a limited time only. Motorists who request a quote for car insurance from Direct Line before November 20th 2011 will then have 90 days in which to accept the policy offered and take up Direct Line’s offer of paying their premium month by month, without incurring any extra charges for doing so. Typically, car insurance companies charge drivers between 7-10% more on their annual cover for the privilege of not paying the balance in full when they take out the policy and spreading the cost over the course of the year. This exclusive deal is only available for a limited time so to make the most of this value for money offer, you’ll need to get in touch with Direct Line before November 20th. With many motorists feeling the pinch due to the rising cost of fuel and motor insurance, and with Christmas only a matter of weeks away, the offer from Direct Line to spread the cost of insurance without incurring any extra surcharge is likely to prove extremely popular with customers. The special offer is available in addition to Direct Line’s long term deal of 12 months worth of car insurance for the cost of 10 months.
