LONDON, Dec. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Teachers are the savviest profession when it comes to looking for the best deal on car insurance, according to new data released by comparison website comparethemarket.com.
Over 14% of customers comparing prices on comparethemarket.com listed their profession as education, giving teachers top marks when it comes to looking for the best deal. Those who work in manufacturing came second in the comparethemarket.com's savviest professions ranking on 12%. But perhaps surprisingly finance professionals were way down the list, accounting for less than 2% of all customers using comparethemarket.com to find the best deal on car insurance.
The ranking of Britain's savviest professionals was produced by comparethemarket.com by analysing data from all visitors to its site in 2010. Other sectors near the top of the ranking included admin and customer support workers (8%), retail professional (8%) and health workers (6%). Legal and safety professionals, scientists, and quality assurance workers all accounted for less than 1% of customers comparing quotes.
"It is clear that price comparison is now an established way of sourcing insurance quotes right across the spectrum," said Kal Atwal, MD of Comparethemarket.com. Our data shows that people from every walk of life are now using price comparison sites to find the best deals on car insurance."
