Who are people insured with?

I have been quoted 536 quid for insurance for a roc, I'm 28 and live in a small village and the car will be parked off the street, the quote was with TESCO. No points and stuff...

Does that sound reasonable? :?:

i've come to the conclusion insurance is a lottery based on a whole host of factors, one thing you may wish to consider is if you indend modifying your car will they allow them if you are going to be a good boy and decalre them

Id say its probably about right. Im 29, got quotes of £400to £450 for diesel and £500 to £550 for petrol 2.0. No points, 10yrs no claims.

What i normally do is go on confused.com see who comes out best then I go and haggle with them directly.

Haven't got my car yet but I did seek quotes from confused.com just to give me an idea and got the following - age 45, Full protected NCB with a claim (my fault) in November last year came in at £237 with morethan - it was £195 when I did the same check a week before the crash.

My details are almost identical to yours, and the best quote I had was with MORETH>N, at around £500 (as it happened I was already covered them so just changed the details on my existing policy).

Have you looked at using a site like Quidco or TopCashBack to save yourself a little bit extra on top?

try vw insurance, cover is good even if it is just zurich under another name
You’re kidding right?

Their quote was outrageous!
Over £1000 when I ended up paying around £400.

I didn't bother getting a quote from them this time round, when I bought a Golf they quoted me close to £1200, I got fully comped by Sift Cover for £348!

I got my Scirocco covered by Admiral for £660 fully comped - age 25 with 3 points.

LOL said the cover was good, never said it was cheap.

Had a few customers say they are competitive so I suppose it depends on your profile, I think they tend to like older people.

Try Adrian Flux, I've been with them with my Rado for several years and they are always the best quote I can find.

Currently paying £400 odd on my VR6, and thats in a higher Insurance group than the Scirocco

Would poster mind indicating the execess they have plumped for on their insurance? Sure you can bring the price down if you increase the execess but without that info it is it is difficult to judge beyween quotes.

No funny cracks you barstards...but with "Saga" I come in at £439 (then add legal protection, personal accident it comes to £515). Garaged, 10K PA clean licence, clean living and an old git to boot.

BoaT

Oh by the way..£150 excess :oops:

P.P.S I have a named driver - she does have 6 penalty points for speeding - I wonder...?
