Hi Guys

Just doing the annual Go Compare Insurance Quotes.

Cheapest I can see £600 with an £850 excess

Any tips or recommendations please

Try Manning UK, I moved to them from Competition Cars Insurance & Footman James, whom are also both worth a look.

Liverpool Victoria always worth a punt.

Saved approx 40% when compared to Admiral for my 2 cars.

Aviva multicar policy has been the most competitive for me for the last two years.

LVE all the way for me.

I have a multi car policy with them, my 997 ended up costing £257 fully comp.
I did put the girlfriend on it and that helped.

Have your circumstances changed in any way?

I've just re-insured with AXA and it was within the previous years premium +/- 20 quid.

Have you tried calling them to see why it's going up so astronomically Surprised

Recently insured the X1 and 997tt for a combined £550 with Elephant. £350 excess. Only just over £200 was for the Porsche from memory

That is with no points, no accidents, 14y NCD, with my wife on there and with limited mileage too mind

Just had my Avia van renewal through at £440 up from £426.
I rang and said that I had lower quotes on the comparison sites ( i hadn't checked!) and they reduced it to £399.

This seems to be the way these days unfortunately.

Dependant on whether you need to use your no claims or not, Classicline as this required zero no claims bonus.

+1 for Aviva. Definitely add the wife, saves 1/3! Even better if you can add it to a van policy! I’m circa £200 with low postcode, only 1yr NC, low miles and max £1k excess.

No longer have it insured, but I used General Accident for my 996T and it was very reasonable - about £350 per year, as I recall

A-Plan matched my best price and had better cover overall, they mirrored my no claims from other vans/cars too.

Cost around £900? (I'm 2Cool

I just moved from AIB back to Admiral, 350 quid inc exhaust mod. Dunno why but nono of the mainstream would cover me a couple of years ago with the mod declared, now they are cheaper, 100 quid excess too
