Insurance - again.

robthehungrymonkey Feb 15, 2005

  1. I have just recieved my renewal notice through from Admiral, £940 for 10 months (although, that includes Business class 1 which adds about £150). I was quickly on the net and first went to Elephant,..... .....£670. Not bad....

    I was wondering if people can just list companies they reccomend, so I can get quotes from them.

    Thanks /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif

    I am just off to ask Norwich union to quote me happy.....

    try sister of elephant - belldirect. i moved from elephant to them this year after 5 years with elephant.
    also another tip is add your mum to policy!! Brought mine down by 100quid. she lives in london and cant drive a manual anymore due to bad knees. go figure!
     
  5. Already have my mum on mine! Being 22 it saves me a fortune!
     
  6. What I've found so far (if anyone's interested)

    Admiral renewal quote: - £940
    Admiral new policy quote (via confused) £840
    Bell Direct - £989
    Privilige - £1080

    And the current leader (by quite a way) Elephant - £670.

    Don't quite understand how Elephant, Admiral and Bell direct can vary so much!

    I find internet insurance companies are generally better at quoting for standard cars, as the prices are fixed from a database with no middle men. Try also www.directline.com which were very competitive for my S3, but that was 3 years ago. Always phone up for a quote if the car is modified in anyway, it's easier and more accurate.

    No one's mentioned them, but Im currently with First "Michael Winner" Alternative. I was with Tesco for a good few years, who always seemed to be about £10 cheaper than DirectLine. First Alternative were a fair bit cheaper than Tesco, I was surprised to see. I honestly cant remember what I paid, but it was £400 odd quid for 1.8T with 9years NCB (27 years old) That was probably protected too....

    A Friend told me Asda are now selling insurance and most times come out cheaper than Tesco. It's worth checking them out, ASDA price!

    Hi all! I'm currently looking for an S3, but just waiting for the right car to come along. Had a quote from Esure today, £493, which I didn't think was bad as my 1.8T Golf I have at the mo was £430 last year.
