Well i'll lay down some facts, just for a laugh. . .

1.4 8v spi, 60bhp

male, 19 ZERO no claims bonus. :)

B98 postal code.

£1100 :) Not bad like.

So the renewal came through today, good old first central, gotta love em :D

1.4 8v spi, 60bhp - same car.

male, 20 - it happens, i do get older each year too. One years no claims discount

B98 Postal Code - same.

And the renewal price. . .



£3170. :nod:

Ohhh yes, so from me earning 1 years no claims discount, literally the only change to my policy apart from my age Lol i have managed to almost triple my previous price. :rofl: Quality, really made me smile, especially when i imagined what the retard would look like that played around with the computer to get my renewal quote :)

I rang them up, just for laughs, as that's all insurance seems to be these days. The woman on the other end could not find the sole reason behind why MY policy had gone up so much, but through a couple of general ideas out there which might have made MY policy increase:

"Well they're could have been an increase in thefts and vehicle crime in your area, which could have caused your policy to go up"

Wtf, seriously, am i paying for all of these thefts and vehicle crimes?!

What a muppet, anyway she told me that was the best price they were able to do, she even wished me luck finding cheaper elsewhere :o

Anyway 2 minutes later, comparethemarket.com, £780, that's more like it, might be jumping back to admiral after all :hang:

I've gotta wait for two weeks before mine is due before trying all the insurance companies that we have discount with as most ask that it's due within two weeks. So i'll try them all out then :) Renewing car insurance is always a weeks long job trawl for me, i try to get a price off everybody, then i'll see price for TPTF/Fully Comp, What named drivers reduce them by. Whether changing the mileage and value alter the cost, then i like to see how much £1000 voluntary excess reduces it by - just for a laugh :)

Not too sure you'ld get a cheaper car to insure, unless you want a 1.3 4 speed metro, or an 800cc matiz?

I found that i could get cheaper insurance on a 2ltr valver estate than a 1.8 valver hatch?! :rolleyes:

I pay £1100 on my grandads policy, i'm on his insurance and his names on the logbook, on my own (19 yr old male, 2 yrs no claims. on a lit driveway 6000 mile limit) is £1978. But i had a 2.0l Sierra (estate - so i do think it makes a diffrence) at a couple hundred quid more on my own policy back when i had a job. I'm with Quinn now and when i asked why it was so much for a basic old astra she said it was classed as a "Sports Hatch". Nowt sporty bout a 1.4.

Thanks for the recommendation. My company specialise in modified car insurance and our minimum criteria is to be aged 19 and over with a full 2 years driving experience :nod:
