Insurance

Postby Janker » Thu Jun 30, 2011 5:19 pm

Today I started the ball rolling a little bit - I decided to ring around to see roughly what to expect my insurance to be when I get my Minor (HOPEFULLY start looking late August time! Can't wait!)

I rung around a couple (FJ, Lancaster and a couple of others that turned out couldn't insure me) and got rough quotes from them, I was just wondering and I imagine it's been asked many times before this, are there any other good companies to look at? (Bearing in mind that I'm under 25 and will be using it as my day to day car, so the 5-6k MPY policies are a no go!)

So far Lancaster was the best, at roughly £325 Fully Comp with "Unlimited" milage!

Thanks in advance,

Jon

£325 fully comp sounds a bargain! Bite their hand off at that.

Yeah I'm hopefully / supposedly on the register, and I'm on the FB group! The quote from Lancaster I am more than happy with, but I thought I may as well poke around for more, never know your luck!

Try RH Classic Insurance - but they may want you to have access to another daily car.......

I also got a very cheap quote from Lancaster, looking at the few online reviews the company has is a little worrying though... That said, people generally only write reviews about these things when they wrong.

Well worth trying RH Insurance. I explained to them that although we do have another car (well 2 others until I sell the Peugeot!) the Morris will be the main car. Unlimited mileage, kept on driveway rather than garaged, fully comprehensive - £50 excess - all for the grand sum of £50.87 per annum! OK---------- I am now well into Saga territory agewise, but the premium is still only about 35% of FJ's quote.

Did you tell FJ you are part of the Owners Club? Its part of the arrangment with the club that they insure younger drivers....
