Any UK owners or prospective owners had ridiculous Insurance quotes? A lot of the online sites and some of the specialist insurers are looking at upto a 3k excess! Be as well going TPFT!!

I have been lucky enough to get a very reasonable deal but using a mirrored no-claims discount policy!

Cheers,
G

I would imagine extremely expensive simply because of the age, even if they were driving from 17 years old crash free, so 8 years NCB. But that is simply my take on things:thumbsup:

Have been quoted £552, £500 excess, 12k pa, Social and Commuting 9yr+ protected ncb, 43 years old, on drive in Essex. Sounds good but as i have a fleet / multi-car policy it is actually cheaper to add it to that.

Cheapest so far is 523 GBP (Social/Domestic) with 9 years NCB (Mirror policy from the M5) limited to 9k miles but can be extended at anytime, no convictions that I know of! Car garaged living in rural Perthshire age 38.

Did have one quote at 9k GBP with a 3k excess, I won't name and shame them!!

Cheers,
G.

I've gone for one of the Admiral multicar policies, which is:

GT-R £424
Civic 1.8 £165
118d £195

£784 the lot!

Which strikes me as a bit of a result, especially as my existing Broker, Performance Direct, could only get to £1700 for the GTR on its own.

Amiral multi car £1250, panda 100hp, Land Rover Discovery + GTR. They were even kind enough to give me 10yr no claims instantly on the GTR. Garaged in Surrey. Can't remember excess but remember thinking it was not much. 39 yr old + wife.

Bloody hell, I thought I'd done well. What's your secret?

I also went with an Admiral Multicar policy:

GT-R: £486.63
RAV4: £230.14 (my girlfriend's car)
and the Supra will remain on its current policy until April, when I will be charged £131.28 through to September.

I hadn't realised that, strictly speaking, a No Claims Discount (NCB) is related to a specific car. Therefore, if you've only got insurance on one car and then buy a second car, you should really be starting at 0 years on the second car.

So, I now understand what the other posters on this thread were referring to when they talked about "mirrored" policies/NCBs. As discussed on another thread, Admiral were able to mirror the NCB for my Supra on the GT-R, which saved me a lot of money. :clap:

Ive been quoted £600 quid for GTR and £350 for Audi 1.8T quattro sport. Me and wife on both cars, Im 38 and missus is similar age, no convictions, 350 quid excess, no tracker, 7 years no claims, social and domestic on GTR and commuting on Audi. 9k pa on GTR. Then they quoted £150 to put my brother on Audi only and another £150 to pay monthly. £1250 all in for 3 people on 2 cars seems okay to me. Im going with this. Car insured in Glas-vagas

Very good. I,m also with Admiral MC. Get yourself a RTI or GAP insurance as Admiral do not replace the car if total loss in year 1 unlike some other insurers.

Rich001: Did you check elephant.co.uk?

I'll still be 24 when I get mine and elephant quoted £1350 with £1000 excess 0 no claims. I've not really had a proper look into it yet though, so it could be their online calculator telling porkies.

Yes I usually check both but as they are effectively the same company the prices are usually very close. Your price appears to be cheap as I have 4yr no claims but I also have it down as driving 12k per year and I imagine many people will use their cars a lot less.

Could be where I live out in the sticks I guess, along with it being garaged and 6k miles. Shall update what I actually get once she arrives.

To be honest, who knows? Perhaps being oldish (55) a clean licence, Tracker and car in garage helped. When I got the quote they discussed the 1 car per NCB issue that had led to starship quotes from others and said they would "balance it across " the cars to be put on the policy, which so far as I can see means giving the max NCB to the driver and the cars he intends to drive!

Mind you, how long the clean licence is going to last with this monster I have no idea!

I called up Admiral today and they'll mirror my NCB across the two cars. Their explanation was that the quote was based on no NCB because i could lose between now and Jan when my 2nd car will come up for renewal.

So i asked for a quote as of today and it works as almost as cheap as my current policy. :D

Cheers for the heads up guys :D
