Crikey, what was it last year? But assume that’s for “professional” insurance?
Yes, "professional" insurance for public hire. Last year was £983 so around 33% increase just for getting thorough another year with no accidents or convictions.
 
Had my renewal come today ..I in the mind now to sell my car after i read the renewal price had gone up from £259 last year to £640 this year ..milage limit 3000 on classic insurance ..not worth owning it for three or 4 trips to the car show and one for MOT

Blimey that really does seem a lot for classic insurance. Might be worth shopping around before you pull the trigger.
 
Can you insure the car for fire theft only an pay a daily charge when you want to use your car.
I have seen policies where you can buy nsure the car for an hour.
 
My renewal came in at £803 from £520 . To get anywhere near £595 I had to increase my voluntary excess from £0 to £300. Last year for my points on licence,so hopefully next times will drop by £100 ??

I also had a play on with my job title and got a further £70 knocked off . Madness!!

Aviva came in at £4718 .

Typical Saga renewal offer.
Competitive when joining, then 1st year renewal the price shoots up.
They must rely on old grunters not checking the cost and just renewing.
 
One of my neighbours mentioned yesterday that renewal on her little Suzuki car ( forgot the model) is over £525, up from £269 last year . I just checked my old Boxster , which isn’t up for renewal yet , but in august was £169. Expecting to be shocked , I was pleasantly surprised when compare the market came up with best price of £140 , fully comp . Admittedly reduced miles from 3000 to 2000 , but there were 16 quotes below £200. Now the Boxster is 25 years old and not exactly high value , but capable of over 140mph and a bit nippier than the average econobox. This was a ‘’regular’’ quote, not a Classic policy. In all honesty I don’t know why I still keep the car , the wife complains that it’s not comfortable to get in /out of and I only use it in fine weather , which rarely coincides with the days I plan to go somewhere! We just had an m.o.t. On her Smart for 2 , and has covered less than 500 miles in a year. Now that I have retired, my B class has done 4000 miles in a year so I should really consider getting rid of three and just buying one car . But that would be too sensible for me!

Funny that as ive just bought a fiesta st for a run about as to not have the SLK55 as a daily and saga again £314
 
There maybe some hope....

24 yr old daughter is changing from her 2010 1.2 Corsa SXi (82 bhp) to a 2019 1.4T (150bhp) Astra SRi

£2k car to a £9k car

Increase in premium from today until 6th June renewal is £10!

Plus a sodding £13 admin fee, but twice the power and four times the value for essentially £4 a month

There maybe some hope ...

PS, Wanna buy a Corsa?
 
I had to pay £362 for my Maserati 4200 1000 miles 2 years ncb. That's TPTF not comprehensive, simply because I'm trying to sell (not that I want to, but have to) and I can't justify the extra cover.
 
I've never really seen the point in TPFT only ,as its not much if any less than fully comp especially these day's, back in the 80s there was quite abit of a difference

I wouldn't normally, but I'm not driving it whilst it's up for sale. They'd give me 4k if they wrote it off, it's worth 10k plus ... I'm not taking the risk.
 
70% increase in my Aviva insurance. 8 years NCB, no claims, accidents, points. All clean. £1090
 
Couple of references to Aviva car insurance on here. Worth noting that they advertise car & van insurance for drivers aged 17 to 84, but will not offer new policies to drivers aged 85 which is obvious.
On the other hand they refused insurance to me recently aged 81 with no accident history and full ncb.
