    Quick question - my 190S-line 54plate is up for renewal, currently with 'first alternative' and have 10yrs NCB protected. Been with them for 3 years and renewal premium is coming up as £577 p.a Im over 30 and personally feel thats really expensive - any recommendations... renewal date is 16th may

    Im with Admiral,really happy with them.
    When i got my renewal i told them i had a better quote(£45) and wanted to cancel and they matched my imaginary quote straight away.
    I pay less than £400.

    I dont think its my age or status, think it boils down to postcode as when you mention manningham/heaton (Bradford Riots) - insurance companies **** their pants. Even though these are probably the safest communities in bradford. I shall continue perservering...

    I've been with Privelige for about 6years now, and have always found them cheapest whenever I check around. You need 3yrs NCB, which you have so that should be fine...

    Oh, and if you use confused.com go to the companies websites as well; sometimes they come up cheaper if you get a quote directly.

    I'm with Churchill, partly because they automatically include Comprehensive cover for driving on the continent. I'm over there a few times a year so that saves £15 a time for upgrading my cover compared with my previous insurer.

    NO NO NO People, Try Adrian Flux.

    Full no claims,28yrs young with 6 Points :eyebrows: £539!!

    Considering axa were charging me £710, I rang adrain flux and they always ask what have you been quoted before, You simply tell them a good £150 - £200 less and Providing it sounds realistic from your cheapest quote, the kind lady will beat it, even if its by a tenner.

    And thats including mods!!!

    You gotta try it for true.

    Go on, it wont hurt.:motz:

    ..and yes Noel dazey were pretty close, Ady flux dropped my Excess by £50 so I went with them.

    So far the best quote I got is from confused.com and its with Sainsburys Bank at £422 all in inc wife as additional driver. Funny thing is it was the first quote I got and since then theyve escalated to 1100 (Kwikfit). The cars parked on private drive - no garage but its living in a exclusive postcode BR0 1NX

    I'm with Esure the cover is pretty good, but you do have to deal with a call centre in India


    :lmfao: though they have just advertised on tv this minute that they only have call centres in the UK! maybe they have stopped them now ?

    Managed to get me and the missus fully comp on my 53 plate cabriolet for £400 for both !

    Well happy with that - and they only charged £5 for FULL Business mileage (not just commuting)

    Try Norwich Union Pav, they were cheap as chips on my first car which was a group 10 and I was 17 and had only just passed.

    Now I'm paying £800 a year on my A4 through Churchill, which is not too bad as I'm going to be 21 in a few months so I'm still a young'un.
