PostPosted: Tue Feb 05, 2019 7:24 am    Post subject: Insurance renewal result - 1st time ever. Reply with quote

My insurance is due at the end of Feb so last week I started on the comparison sites ready for when my overpriced renewal comes through. Tesco who I'm currently with were coming in at £330, with the cheapest (Zenith) at £280.

Amway, I got my renewal though at the weekend with Tesco - £276. For the first time EVER my renewal has beaten all the quotes I've found, even their own........Which NEVER happens.

Wonder if insurance companies are starting to change their tactics? Dont know

£755 is the best I can do on a V8V Rolling Eyes

Last time I paid £700 for insurance was in 1991 on an Escort RS Turbo!

The problem is I need a company that can mirror my no claims bonus which is on my works van and I don’t think the comparison sites do that?

They do. You load in nil (or 1, 2 years etc) NCB for the quote and then it asks you if you have NCB on any other car. I had to do that for the 4C as it's not classic status (yet) but at least the advantage is I build a separate NCB Rolling Eyes

Just for a laugh I rung my van insurers (Aviva) to see if they would consider adding it as a 2nd vehicle as a multi car policy type of thing.

To add a V8 Vantage until renewal in june would be £91 and estimated annual premium including my van £600 (the van is £308 on its own)

Now thats a proper result

I've had an Aviva MC policy for 3 years now.

If you've got any other insurance with them you'll get a chunky discount.
