For a male non-smoker, the average monthly cost has dropped to £7.82, down from £8.82 a year earlier, a fall of just over 11%.
Meanwhile, smokers have benefited from cheaper cover too, with the average female smoker rate falling more than 9% to £9.84, down from £10.84. The average male rate has also dropped from £13.39 to £12.65, a decline of more than 5%.
"Longer life expectancy coupled with increased competition in the term assurance market has driven prices down to all time lows," said Richard Eagling, editor of Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts.
"Consumers looking to take advantage of the huge savings on offer should proceed with caution as life insurance companies assess risk differently. Some policies are as much as five times more expensive - so why waste money needlessly?"
At present, AA Insurance Services leads the way in three out of the four Moneyfacts level term assurance best buy tables.
