    Insurance due. Which Insurer for the UK?

    Just got notification from my current insurer that my renewal is due towards the end of April.

    Can anyone recommend a good insurer. Possibly even one that allows a few track days.

    [edit]

    Oh yeah, got a Pounds30 fine today from the local law enforcement officers. Apparently the spacing between the lettering on my numberplate was too much.

    Re: Insurance due. Which Insurer for the UK?

    Just had a reasonable quote from Porsche Insurance (Marsh Private client)
    Cost was Pounds900 for a C4S, but no tracker needed and allows for 2 track days.
    Seems Ok to me given what I saved on not having a tracker fitted.

    Re: Insurance due. Which Insurer for the UK?

    Thanks for that. I'm with Norwich Union Direct and have got a renewal of Pounds907 which is Pounds90 down on last year (Pounds997 ironically). They do not need a Tracker either, it includes for up to 5,000 business miles and my wife to drive when she needs to, albeit she's never driven it in nearly an year of ownership. No track days though. So I think the cost isn't bad, it's just the extras.

    Re: Insurance due. Which Insurer for the UK?

    I pay Pounds1100 with Norwich Union. No tracker required either. I'm 29 and got banned last year for speeding so I don't think Pounds1100 is bad.

    I am also insured with Porsche Insurance aka Marsh Private Clients. I've found the premiums to be competitive, the service excellent and if you are unfortunate enough to have a prang then repairs are automatically undertaken by a Porsche approved workshop. I thoroughly recommend them.

    I guess I'm going to seriously have to check them out. Thanks guyz.

    I normally get quotes from the AA, churchill and Direct Line but I got a quote from Lloyds TSB and saved Pounds300. I also got an extra Pounds60 cashback by buying through www.internetcashback.co.uk

    Re: Insurance due. Which Insurer for the UK?

    Sorry if I may ask, are these quotes for brand new cars ? I pay 1.5k on my Cayenne S and I was recently quoted 1.6k on my about to be delivered c4s that cost 89k pounds. Am I being ripped off somewhere !

    Re: Insurance due. Which Insurer for the UK?

    All depends on your postcode. The difference between a really great and a really bad postcode (in insurance risk terms - not necessarily a reflection upon the area) can make more than 100% uplift to your premium. I know full well this is the case having changed postcode several times over the last 3 years and having always owned the same car (BMW E46 M3).

    Living in a city centre in the UK I have seen my premium rise by almost 60% from living in the countryside and also have seen it vary by +/- a further 40% depending on my exact postcode in the city. Moving 50 yards made over Pounds400 per year difference to my M3 insurance premium! All the company could say is "computer says its right sir, nothing I can do, its the way they are calculated."

    Re: Insurance due. Which Insurer for the UK?

    "Computer says nohhh" - reminds me of Little Britain....

    [FYI, all non-UK rennteamers, it's a scene in a British comedy series where an unhelpful and morose travel agent types away on her keyboard before saying "no" to just about anything the clients request].
