    postocde yes a lot porbably but ncb doesnt make that difference for me for example. Just to see I put 5 years and them 9 years to see how much would it save me. only 65 between them two... Changing job description or adding girlfriend makes bigger saving

    computer technician is on the same level as trainee account and accountant. I even checked how is it to be a priest :) in my quote it came up 150 more expensive than computer technician

    Why does your occupation matter? Fair enough if you were a car mechanic you maybe be more likely to mess about with it and make it run faster blah blah, but I'm a Sales Estimator for fire sprinklers by day and i do my own M&E Building Services CAD on a night. What effect could this possibly have on the way i treat my car?

    occupation matters a lot, for example if you are casino manager you will be going late at night and leaving your car in high risk area.
    if someone is a builder its possible he may use his car for work sometimes so risk is highier
    all jobs office based 9-5 will have lower risk than others. and police officer will have the lowest. race driver will be mad man so his insurance will be sky high
    journalists have high insurance but if they provide copy-writer as their job title it makes their premium lower

    if you google how job title affects insurance you will find loads of info and articles, but best way is just run a quote online and amend few times changing job title you will see difference in premium. some jobs are on the same level but other make bigger or smaller difference. its good to play with it for a while

    I ran around 150 quotes last 3 days, got blocked on Admiral now but managed to take down my insurance premium of ~£1600 from gocompare to £813. 3 days worth of research paid off :)
