Mine was free with Greenlight - top company :top:
I've found that out this week. I rang Greenlight (who my R32 insurance was with) for a quote for my new Edition 30. They want an extra £77 which brings the total for a years worth of cover to over £640 (paid £570 for the R32). I've been getting quotes from elsewhere for around £420-£440, but the amount Greenlight will refund me for cancelling mid-policy is so pathetic that it's just as easy staying with them until the next renewal and then shopping around again.Algie said:There's usually a penalty for doing that. I'm paying over the odds 'cos I changed cars half way through the policy period, the penalty for surrendering the policy outweighs the saving I'd make insuring the R elsewhere :-(
Except they cover modified parts like for like, unlike Elephant and other mainstream insurers who replace them with standard parts even though you've declared modified parts and paid the extra for having them!jackie said:I am with elephant and out of interest I done a qoute through greenlight after the praise they get on here. They were about £150 dearer for me for pretty much same terms
Similar here with my Ed30 - all quotes have been around the £400-440 mark....VW want £1065 after the first 7 days!:argh:Kraft said:When i collected my car last week, i had the 7 days insurance for free, and then they quoted me £1440 for a year...pfff no thx VW..:shot:
Just got quoted £260 with MoreThan I must be older and that's with protected No Claims.JayCee said:'cos I'm getting old....).
Try going onto privledge online, and typing in your details. They might not be the cheapest straight away, but it comes crashing down after a couple of years. But try it, it might be cheaper. On the last page change the details like Legal, excess, and NCB, and it gets a lot cheaper. Make sure you put your missus on there, as its a lot cheaper as a "family" car.Frankwell said:Got no no claims bonus and admiral quoted me £750 (always been a named driver) and I'm 31. They also said if I put my 26 year old girlfriend on they will lower it further. What a load of nonsense, she is worse than me!! Anyone know any good insurance people for 'first timers'?
