High-quality debt protection will increase confidence amongst American consumers – research shows.
Ontario, Canada: Insurance Insight Inc’s recent market research data indicates that American consumers would feel more comfortable making their next vehicle purchase or lease with a high-quality debt protection plan in place. The survey received over 1,500 responses from consumers across the U.S., each of whom is planning a vehicle purchase within the next two years.
“After we saw the results from our Canadian survey, we knew we wanted to do something similar with U.S. consumers. The results are very similar and all point to automotive consumers craving a safety net. The economic climate remains uncertain, and debt continues to rise making products like WALKAWAY Finance Protection™ more relevant than ever,” said Insurance Insight Inc. President and CEO Robert Varga.
Other key insights from the survey include:
- 74% of respondents also said they would feel more confident in their next vehicle purchase if it came with coverage that would make their monthly payments for them if something unexpected happened (e.g. job loss, critical illness, physical disability).
- 64% would opt to pay for debt protection products, some up to $50/month.
- 47% said the current state of the economy would impact their purchasing decisions.
