With prices going up, everyone’s piggybanks are feeling it too. As a result, people compare price differences more accurately, especially online. Online quote comparisons are becoming more popular and Hippo.co.za recently conducted research which showed that at least 8 out of 10 people could save R427* on their car insurance when comparing and switching providers online. This means that one could save a total of R5124 in a year.


Hippo.co.za compared some answers from these South African celebrities, to see what they would do with the extra buck they could save:

“Save R5 000 rand a year? That would mean I could attend every music festival in this country. Its like a years worth of holidays!” - Francois Du Toit (Presenter on JacarandaFM, Presenter on kykNET for Hoor Hoor, front man of Frankie Fire).

"If I could save R5 124 a year, I would use the money to throw a great birthday party for my little boy. I'm not sure what kids parties cost these days, but it would go a long way to help make it a very special day for him." - Rozanne McKenzie (Presenter on Dagbreek Ontbytprogram, kykNET).

"I have been lusting after a matching luggage set. I read a novel in which the writer described how you could identify South Africans and Australians by their tog bags when travelling. I realised that I want to look like a seasoned classy traveller.” - Nicole Da Silva (Presenter on 5FM, Club DJ).>
