Admiral / Elephant

Bell Direct always seem to be very competitive

Tesco for me.

And a tip that saved me over 400quid. Add your mum/dad/gran or grandad onto the policy as a second driver.

Tesco for me too but a few of my mates have found kwik-fit insurance cheaper now so I may have a look at that come renewal time.

I think you're going to struggle for anything less than £1,500.

Yeh i dont think you are going to get it for less then what Hindey said.

Im 21, with 3 years no claims, and had my license those 3 years too, and the cheapest i found was tesco for about 900quid.

But dont let that bother you...the premiums may be higher, but oh its worth it

The cheapest I have found is £3000!!

Insurance for young drivers has increased a good 60% in the last 6 months.. what a joke (especially for people like me who havent had an accident in the 2yrs they have been driving.. touch wood)

I've just got off the phone from the AA. The Cup will cost me pretty much the same as the Trophy when I get it in March. £660 with 8 years NCB. Pretty high for an old un, but I do a lot of miles and they DO count windscreen claims against you even though they say they don't.

I'm 31 also but mine has always been pretty high. I think this years is the first time in a long time I've had a clean license!!

I do have 1 fault claim, 1 none fault claim and 2 windscreen claims though. Plus I'm insured for 16k miles a year. It's the mileage that kills it.

They did me a nice deal on my home insurance though. Approve

Definately agree with Elephant and Admiral. Looking myself for a 182 and they are both £100 cheaper than the one that I am with.
