COVID-19 is an unprecedented event for the Motor insurance sector. With a lengthy lockdown in place, many drivers are no longer on the road using their vehicles. The knock-on effect of this is that there has been a significant reduction in the number of motor insurance claims in France.

The combined ratio for motor insurers in France fell below 100 for the first time in 2020, which means that they received more in premiums than they paid out in claim. In 2020, the combined ratio for motor insurance amounted to 94.7, down from 102 in 2019. In 2019, the combined ratio of car insurances before reinsurance amounted to 102 percent, and it was the same for the combined ratio after reinsurance, in France. One year later, the combined ratio before reinsurance was marginally lower than the ratio after reinsurance: 94 percent and 95 percent, respectively.

Insurtechs, recently introduced to the market, are impacting the traditional insurance sector. Although the growth of the global market of Insurtechs is moderate, the number of insurance start-ups rose from 203 to 224 in France between January 2020 and January 2021.
