Among other things, the pricing change is intended to protect car insurance companies’ financial health so that they can continue to provide value to customers.

Before we get into how the new pricing works, let’s take a look at how car insurance companies fared during the 2022 recession. In this article, the terms “price” and “premium” will be used interchangeably to refer to how much you pay to insure your car, and “car” will refer to all vehicles.

How the 2022 economic turmoil affected auto insurance

Replacement parts, materials, and labor are all covered under insurance. The cost of imported parts and materials increased dramatically during the year. Repair labor costs have also risen as a result of the country’s rising cost of living.

In addition to rising costs, insurers faced significant losses in the value of their investments. Typically, the returns on insurance company investments supplement the collected premiums for claim settlement. Investment losses put insurers in a difficult position when it comes to their critical role of assisting customers in recovering quickly from financial losses in the event of an accident.

The new car insurance pricing is different in one notable way

The new pricing categorizes vehicles into 2 groups based on the year of registration:

● Group A: vehicles registered before 2020
● Group B: vehicles registered from 2020 onwards

The amount you will pay is determined by the classification of your vehicle. For example, if you own a Toyota Corolla saloon car that you only use for social and private commuting, third-party insurance will cost you Ghs423 if the registration year is before 2020. If you register in 2020, you will be charged Ghs468. Prior to the implementation of the new pricing on January 1, all private cars used for social and private commuting paid Ghs327.
