the majority of consumers are unwilling to notify insurance providers about incidents resulting in minor damage to their vehicles, even if another vehicle was involved. The research also reveals interesting variations in responses by age and gender, with more than two out of five consumers thinking it is acceptable to omit or adjust at least some data given to an insurance provider, and older consumers are less likely to think this is acceptable. The research demonstrates that there are opportunities for motor insurance providers to minimise or albeit eliminate this growing tendency amongst consumers who seek to mislead them through a more intelligent use of data that can improve products, pricing and consumer behaviour.
