After getting in from work today, I noticed I had a letter off my insurance company (Liverpool Victoria). Thinking it would be good News about either a cheaper more affordable renewal quote or that my claim had finally worked out in my favour, I opened it rather quickly.

After spending a few minutes getting my head around the text and figures, it was to my disbelief that my renewal quote was to be rediculous.

"We have pleasure in enclosing our new quote of 4306.50 annual premium"

WHAT THE F**K!!!!

After my insurance being less than 2000 a year, it's more than double from 1 claim!?!?!

So now I'm stuck with 3 outcomes:

- Try and find a better renewal quote elsewhere (may involve lies)

- Go on the works insurance if possible

- Stop driving


The latter one, as much as I don't want to is seeming a pretty good idea atm as it will allow me to save 150 a month from the insurance, 100 a month in petrol, costs of tax, mot and any mods or problems.

So basically, I'm p*ssed off and just after a bit of advice on cheaper insurance or whats the best thing I could do.

just 1 claim, apparantly my fault (stupid backwards woman driver grrrr), just the 2 cars, my car was written off even though the damage was fixable. Tried about 50 companies online so far and the best quote I got is just over 9,000 fully comp, or 2,300 without even mentioning the crash! GAH

Man thats bad!

But, from what you are saying, are Liverpool Victoria the cheapest quote you have had?

As all insurance companies use the same "format" to calculate their insurance, so this would be why it has increased.

Hope ya get it sorted mate, I am assuming you have tried Tesco?

Jesus

its enough to put you off the road. mad

Its awkward when your young.
And your always chasing that age thing.

Have you tried Sheila's wheels ?

Just speak with a high toned voice

Any chance of you becoming the named (Second Driver) on your car?

Get your pops to insure it and you
as a named driver.

Keep trying mate,
there has to be someone out there
that can get you a better quote.

FFS what a pain in the arse that is eek

As webby mentioned, some companys are now doing no claims for named drivers if it would maybe cheaper to go on your parents policy...

Maybe get a lower risk car...

Keep shopping, theres gotta be somewhere cheaper than 4k - Im not surprised they have pleasure in giving that quote, they must be making a packet!!!

Good luck matey, sound like you might need it ... frown

Almost makes me happy to be old tease

One thing Joe, maybe you should put your number plate back on? (if you havnt already)

Cos you really dont want another 3 points if the police decide to give you some for it, as it would increase you premium further.

wink

I'll be putting my plates back on, looks like I'll have to sell my car within the 2-3 weeks I have left.

Izzy phoned around the companies I already tried to see if she could get a cheaper quote. The cheapest one was 2500 TPFT with YesInsurance I think.

Been looking at 50cc - 125cc bikes. 30 a month insurance TPFT!!!! That would mean I'd be saving around 200 a month, if not more, as the insurance is cheaper and the petrol costs are amazing (i.e. 100+ miles on a full tank (10)).

I was speaking to Dazza and he recommended stating that it is kept in a garage and perhaps think about getting a cat1 alarm fitted.

Havn't tried it in anyone elses name yet as I don;t really have anyone elses name to put it in. Mum doesn't drive and I aint spoke to my dad in years lol. Don't speak to my family either lol.

So yeah, either walking, cycling or a 125cc bike for me during the winter months, cas I refuse to use public transport.
