Bargain time!

Post by Nate »

Just insured my mk2 for another year, and I think you'll agree this quote is a snip! All mods declared, me and swmbo to drive, sdp and commuting, limited to 5k a year.

"Go girl" was the most spectacular quote at 14k :help:

Footman James, Brentacre & Chris Knott were always good for classic insurance for me :-)

Just had a renewal quote from Adrian Flux. up from £140 to over £450. Nothings changed on my part, they know about my previous claims! Apparently the insurance company I was with, Chaucer, have been taken over. They now are only quoting me for Sabre for full insurance (not classic). I have got a separate quote from Sabre and it was £350. Not sure what AF are doing, but I'm looking around for a better deal.

Well, one thing has changed - insurance premium tax has been increased since last year. Tax increases always get passed on to the consumer.

I don't mind it going up, but doubling is taking the piss.

The thing is, customer loyalty no longer counts in the customer's favour. New customers get discounts, existing customers get taken for a ride in case they can't be bothered to search again... easy money!

I was a new customer 3 years in a row on my house insurer with the same insurance company, it was substantially cheaper than the renewal every time.
