Ridiculous insurance
« on: September 12, 2019, 05:12:26 PM »
My Recently departed Fiat coop 20vt modded with Adrian Flux £272.
They just quoted me £377 for a standard gti t200.
Apparently it might be cheaper if I get it modded. Go figure :thinking:
Oh well off to my local insurer in town tomorrow.
I guess i'm not a boy racer at 54!!

You could try HIC but they are owned by Adrian Flux now.

If the car isn't modified try the comparison sites and pick the cheapest reputable company.

Greenlight have looked after me very well for several years now and David there is a real car enthusiast. I wouldn’t touch Flux with a bargepole.

My experience of Flux was that it was rather impersonal / corporate and ran a business model whereby they quoted competitively to win new business but ramped up the premium on renewal.

Ha ha, thanks for the input everyone, the local face to face broker in town did it £222.
As a footnote AF said they would refund me my last month on the coop. £3.40 was the offer.
Picking the car up tomorrow if it's good.

I use the comparison sites every year without fail. And every year I get a better deal.
