    High risk on one, 898 out of 1697 on the other, which ties in perfectly with what I knew i am living in a very high risk area.

    Your grid position: 1412 out of 1697 postcodes
    Your premium: £597.75

    I have to say I'm not overly confident of the results here , I also tried an area that I know has a lot of vehicle crime and it came up with:

    Your grid position: 563 out of 1697 postcodes
    Your premium: £485.12

    898 -That's meduim risk - not even high imho


    Yeah the premiums are not accurate at all.
    From a low risk to high risk area it should be nearly triple

    No data for my wee post code. Only about 12/15 or so houses in the post code itself.

    Am I missing something here? I have entered my postcode but don't get a number come up, I get an arrow pointing between low risk and medium risk. Where are you guys getting these numbers from?:confused:

    There are two separate links. The first give you the arrow indicator. The second apparently returns a ranking and average premium for the area. I say apparently as it refuses to recognise the existence of SW3...
