Admiral Car Insurance: Drive to de-stress

Friday, 16 October 2009 12:00

Car insurer, Admiral, has created a podcast with tips on de-stressing in response to findings that people are driving to ‘clear their heads’ from tension.

Potential car insurance customers visiting Admiral’s website will be given the chance to win £1,500 towards a dream holiday in a bid to help them relax and get away from the stresses and strains of everyday life.

And on the website they will also find the podcast with alternative techniques on how to deal with stress as well as some longer-term advice.

The move comes as research by Admiral found 44 per cent of people had gone out for a drive to make themselves feel better when they were stressed.

Worryingly, 56 per cent also said they were more likely to get road rage if they were feeling worried or stressed and 37 per cent said it caused them to drive more erratically.

Sue Longthorn, managing director of Admiral, said: “The results of our survey highlight the impact general everyday stress has on your driving, so it’s important that people are aware of this and how to lessen this impact.

“Hopefully our podcast will go some way to help give people ideas on combating stress, and I’m sure winning the money towards a relaxing holiday would definitely help as well.”
