    As per the above post. I'd like to know what's classed as a less-risky job title. I'm self employed and work from home or remotely. I don't commute and only visit clients a couple of times a month. So my car is sat outside most of the time and I'm paying £1400 for my A3. I haven't had a car for the past 4 years (living abroad) but prior to that (Jul 2008) I had 4 years' NCB, which I believe can't be carried over my most recent insurance (Jul 2012)? Correct?

    29 year old, no claims/accidents, no NCB (unless the above is wrong), pretty poor post code NE33 I do believe even though it's safe as houses round here.

    Now then, I put my job title as marketing manager or marketing consultant (can't remember) which I assume isn't the best title. I could put anything as I run the company and do everything.

    What's the best job title to lower premiums then? I'm due for renewal in May.

    Why don't you just pick a few that reflects your job, then get a quote with them, it's easy to update details and update price. I run a take away, but I use Fast Food Proprietor.

    True true. I always find calling them up usually gets better prices than online these days.

    I find that calling is cheaper for modified cars, as you need to declare the mods, but for standard cars, gocompare and moneysupermarket are better for standard cars.

    Moneysavingexpert.com has a tool on it that works out what is the best title to use when quoting for insurance.

    Really? I've been using that a fair bit to check on prices but it doesn't seem to make any difference it seems. Must just be no NCB or my area that is causing absolutely cack results.
