I absolutely hate renewing insurance as it's such a ball ache ringing around different companies and insurance is a complete scam.

However I set up an account on Confused.com about 2 years ago and saved the details of my daily car, BMW, and have added my GT-R. When my renewal comes through I just login and hit the "Quote" button and then ring up my insurance company and tell them their price rise is way above my quote from the lowest insurer on Confused.com, usually they match when I threaten to leave :)

I also have 2 policies, so I recommend getting an old banger and building up some no claims on another policy. I used to have an old MK3 Golf GTI I kept for when it snowed (BMW useless in snow) and used this to build up some separate no claims.

I actually swapped my 13 years NCD form my BMW to the GT-R and used my 3 years NCD from my second policy to renew my BMW insurance and it was cheaper with 3 years NCD than 13 years NCD???????

That's just one example of why I know insurance is a scam :chuckle:

So just had the renewal through for 2016, details as follows:

Insurance Company : pace ward
Your Age : 35
No Claims Bonus : 2yr (previously had full no claims but company car ownership meant it was no longer valid)
Points on license : 0 points
Claims in last 3 years : 0
Year of Car : 2010 (10 Plate)
Mileage per year: 8000
Modifications on Policy: stage 4.25
The renewal :£750

Wondering if it's worth ringing round. What puts me off is that with the company car / no claims position generally people aren't keen and also Pace Ward have been excellent. If there is a deal to be had I will post up, otherwise this is what my premium is for this next year
Insurance Company : pace ward
Your Age : 35
No Claims Bonus : 2yr (previously had full no claims but company car ownership meant it was no longer valid)
Points on license : 0 points
Claims in last 3 years : 0
Year of Car : 2010 (10 Plate)
Mileage per year: 7000
Modifications on Policy: stage 4.25
The renewal :£675

I had a chat with them and they renewed for £675 which included reducing mileage down to 7000pa (from 8k). Pace Ward have been good for me and I couldn't be arsed ringing around so just renewed with them.

Modifications on Policy: stage 4.25, alloys

You guys get some amazing quotes with Elephant. I don't think Elephant are too concerned with past experience in a performance supercar so I guess my quotes are high (£830 range, 10yr NCB) as I am in London, although a nice area of London. Car on driveway.

Another example of this scam is that quotes on confused.com and MoneySupermarket differ with the same details! And I had a multicar quote with the family car and a GT-R I looked at buying, I change the GT-R to the one I am buying, quote goes up. This was a multicar policy I had a reference for. A fresh multicar quote gives a lower price!

Is this part of a multi-car quote? I am in a similar situation to you stat-wise but am being quoted over £800. I didn't write the exact figure down as I nearly dropped the phone. :eek:

Yes. That's the GT-R bit of it. It's £590 in total, my other car is a 1.2 Fiat 500 with 7 years NCB.

I tried getting separate quotes for both cars and the multi-car option came out cheapest. Maybe because they are being insured together, and I am the only driver of both, that makes it better ? But who really knows how insurance companies get to their prices ?

Latest up-date. Admiral is £718.90 for single car and on a multi-car £1080. But get this, the split was £585 for the GTR and £494 for a Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 FFS. Think I'll go with Pace Ward at £490 and Saga at £228 for the Corsa. Yes, Snuffy, unlike you, I'm in that age group. Grew up with Bill Hayley, Elvis and Big Daddy Don Garlitz. Maybe that's the reason for the high premiums.

I've only got a few months to go before I can join Saga (as the missus keeps point out to me !). Premiums are reported to go up as you get older, I was even reading an article about it in my breakdown company's magazine yesterday about that thing.

But my old dears pay bugger all (both 70+), for a 106 and a Fabia vrs. You would think your Corsa would be cheaper than that.
