IFB warns against fronting to cut premiums


The Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB) has warned of more young people committing fraud rather than paying record high premiums.

Average policies for 17-24-year-old is approaching £3,000, with the IFB warning against ‘fronting’ as a way to cut costs.

Fronting is when someone is added to a policy as a named driver when they should have a policy of their own. The Association of British Insurers (ABI) says a main driver on the policy must be the person who drives the car the majority of the time, and if fronting is discovered it will invalidate the policy and could result in a criminal conviction.

Radford, Head of Intelligence, Investigations and Data Services at the IFB, said: “With prices rising, we understand more young people will be tempted to front on their car insurance to save money, but fronting is never worth the risk.”
