Car insurance

Hi There
 
Has anyone had recent experience of rates on renewal as mine is coming up and I am hoping for a reduction due to lower claims through lockdowns over the last year ?
 
 Thanks Terence

It all depends as one policy/company is not the same an another.
 
But so far this year as all my cars renew now in the calendar, my 964 Porsche policy (Carole Nash) came in a cheeky 35% higher on a default renewal quote, but a call to then (after I got a requote online with the same company showing it could be less as a newbee) made the renewal magical less than last year 😉
 
My 4 multicar policy with Admiral, by default each cars renewal cost was lower than last year...which is 1st ever in 10yrs
 
And my motorbike policy was higher but a quick call got it down to the same as 2020.
 
I have to play this quote juggle game every year, but this year Admiral has saved me 2hrs work 😉 with them to get the cost less or the same as the year before and it works every year.
 
It depends......

Hi Ian, You 4-car Admiral policy does not cover your 964, yes? Carole Nash do this as you say? Just confirming before I go looking soon too.

Correct Admiral multi used to cover the 964 Porsche but its too classic for them now, so I had to switch to another vendor . I use Carole Nash for the Porsche now ( single policy ) who ive used for years for classic Bikes ..CaroleNash have all UK call centres.
 
As you know, take your pick who wants your money as it depends on what your trying to insure and what risk you want to own etc etc .

Interesting. Both Porsches currently with Footman James at £332 inc trackday cover (limited mileage @ 3k miles). Haven't found cheaper (for both together) yet. Daily belters with First Direct for now.

My 996 is on my Admiral multi-car policy along with the Landy and Audi. Overall rates came down (in August) so I also anticipate that they will do so again this Summer given the low mileages driven subsequent to the last renewal (sadly).

Hello all! I just joined the club. I am a US citizen with a home in Poole. I am looking to see if there is insurance available for my car 2010 997.2 911 Turbo. I've tried finding a company but without being a UK citizen, I'm hitting a wall as to see what is available to someone in my situation. I currently have insurance through a US company but I would like to find a UK company if possible. Thank you in advance for any

I don't know what problems being in the US will cause but I have a modified (some other insurers would not take it on) 996 model 911 fully comprehensively insured with www.classiclineinsurance.co.uk on an agreed valuation and restricted to 5000 miles for £290.  Although I have not yet made any claims they have been very helpful when I have any queries and you may find that emailing them will be useful.

Try the clubs insurance partner Loctons. They may be able to asssist.

Does seem daft. You're insuring the car not the person. Wonder what Forces personnel do when posted or stationed abroad (or any other overseas working for that matter). If you can grab a dedicated Porsche magazine or the club mag, maybe plenty of specialist insurers to call up on the back pages - only useful info in the Club mag ;)

You are insuring the drivers’ circumstances,  age, there history as well as the car as the asset.
 
As the person drives the car on the road and its all todo with risk of the driver. Taking out insurance requires credit checks taking place on the individual, the drivers driving habits (claims, accidents etc ) etc all checked at the backend by the broker when the policy is taken out .
 
Perhaps try www.adrianflux.co.uk as in the past they insure most risks at a cost ?
