    Hi All just had a conversation with my insurer Diamond aka bell aka admiral to let them know that I have fitted a dash cam for my own safety and insurance reasons and obviously I ve asked for a discount on my insurance and the operator s answer was that I should pay £20 extra per year for it Isn t this crazy???

    That's mental. Most offer discount if it's a particular make and model of cam but never heard of them putting it up!

    Hi Dan does it have to be one of the branded ones to get the discount as I have a streetwise unit but it isn't listed in your list of cam

    my insurance company ageas who I'm with through sky insurance said that having a dashcam in my car doesn't effect my insurance positively or negatively.

    The list is hardly exhaustive , some of the best £50-£100 dash cams aren't there, 1440P too .

    Provided it is HD this should not be a problem.

    I recently contacted my insurer...Swiftcover, as I didn't have a dash cam fitted at time of renewal, (March) but fitted it around end of May of this year and also when I checked "my swiftspace" they had the car listed as being parked on the road overnight whereas it's actually in a locked garage overnight. So I made the alterations and hit "enter" expecting to see a reduction in the premium...they came back asking for an extra £18....WTF. So I hit the "cancel changes" button.. Total rip off insurance companies. It makes you wonder why there are so many uninsured drivers out there that have just said "**** you" to the insurance companies. The downside to that is all us "legal" drivers have to pay for it..

    @RS4 Cookie the reason it went up is the cars less of an insurance risk on the road. If it's in your garage/driveway thieves know it's your car thus break into your house for the keys = higher risk!

    Just remember if you have a accident and its your fault there's evidence then that will go against you :whistle2:. That's what my insurance told me when I asked if I would get a discount next time. They said its very handy to have one until your to blame
