Insured For Another Year

Recommended Posts

Just done my insurance renewal. Was surprised with a-plan who had put my premium up to £208 so decided I would shop around this year. In the end insured wth 2gether insurance for £164.

Just got my renewal through from A-plan, loads of info why premiums going up in the cover letter. Then found mine had gone up by about 4 quid to £125..

They put mine up about £30, and gave me all that about why prices have gone up on the phone. if it hadn't gone up that much I'd have paid it without shopping round but I got this years for less than last years now. Will try then again next year.

Lower price without same cover may not be cheaper --- we shopped around after our A-Plan quote & found the lower prices did not contain the same level of cover as A-Plan.

Slight difference in excess, but that is all from what I can tell. Underwriter is highways which I believe is actually one of the ones that a-plan use, though not the one they were placing me with. Have had insurance with them before, including going through a claim, and been happy with them, so should be ok if the worst happens.

Stuart,

 

should have had a word with Clare Wilkinson who is the young lady who tries to assist all of our club members, she normally picks up on any problems !

 

Cheers

Got my renewal from A plan, had gone up to £148 with breakdown cover so rang around and found the same from Sure term direct for £125 with free legal cover. Rang up A plan but they said the cheapest they could do it was £148 with free legal cover (was £30 extra with renewal) both were with Highway, guess who I'm insured with now.

A plan offered same insurance as last year for the identical price I paid last year.....£118 with no legal cover.

I added breakdown insurance as I'm going to France twice this year & that was £45.

Hi guys.

 

Is insurance for a 21 year old on a Robin hood with a 2 liter engine going to be pricey?

 

Do insurers look differently on kit car owners than on regular car drivers?

 

I've been driving since I was 17. And now all that is stopping me getting a kit car is the insurance quote ( It will only be a weekend car). Just wondered what you experienced guys thought before I ring around on Monday.

 

Thanks.

It should be cheaper but as always with the slippery insurance companies it depends on your location and circumstances and which way the wind is blowing

The only way to find out is give a

the brokers above a call. They may differ widely.

Limiting the miles will help

i've had my hood since i was 22. That was a while ago now, but you may be surprised - at that time it was about half what i had been quoted for a supermini. Only phone specialist kit/classic insurers.

Thanks for the replies. I have been advised to only phone the specialist insurers.

 

I'll let you know how I get on.

I was 21ish when I first insured mine 3.5 years ago. It was £680ish, my only car (so commuting) and 9k miles a year (they believed I worked very close to home...) Living in Coventry city centre-ish.

I'm now 25 (insurance was last month at 24) and 3k miles, a claim (unknown 3rd party hit and run) and have a main car (no commuting) same first part of the postcode and it was £310 with A-Plan. I've doubled the engine power since then too.

You should have no problem and probably be very happy with the cost of insurance (despite the age discounts :p lol)
