Nobrainer has a spectacular aura aboutNobrainer has a spectacular aura about
Aviva. Have given me the cheapest quote for several years now. ZS is quite heavily modified and Flux said they wouldn't touch it but they did. Slight difficulty with the guy on the phone, didn't have a clue, but I gave him all the details and he seemed happy. Adrian flux told me modified cars can be cheaper as they are seen as low risk enthusiasts cars.

I just got a quote of 1211 from these!

I will be 36 years old at renewal and have 10+ years no claims!

I'd hate to think what they are charging new drivers!

After a week of sun I turned my phone on to check messages, had literally 25 saying my insurance is up for renewal, they have tried charging my card but it is no longer available, (important to also point out that auto renewal was switched off) as I had a new bank card. Then I got one final message saying

"thank you for your payment of 925 (three times previous price), thankyou foor choosing swiftcover"

They had charged a card that they never had details for, never ever! How did they get hold of my details? Luckily they refunded me and apologised. But never again.

I'm currently with Adrian Flux due to the level of covered mods. However since replacing the interior etc I shall be looking elsewhere with notified but not covered mods. No point considering their worth these days. Was paying around 500 but I do insure two other cars and the full NCB is on the Landy. Admiral.............what a joke, all three were more expensive with them and I am paying alot less with three different insurers.

MGF is with Churchill.
Landy is with LV.

i used Aplan, and Greenlight the past 2 years.

but ring round all the brokers and try specialists to get them all to lower their prices. it takes some time but my premium has not moved for the past 3 years as a result.

Fecking renewal time and Flux are taking the ****! 630! So trawling through all the sites and some are having a right larf! I cannot believe the amounts being quoted, wish it was not modified as Directline quoted me 228, so far the best cover has been 425 which I still find alot.

Anyone got any updates on the contents to this thread? Will sticky this so we have a list of who we used and why.

It puzzles me how they work out quotes, the T16 zs is insured with Flux and this year was the same price as last year, I've used Flux for years for various modded cars and tbf they've been ok.

Last year the 180 was insured with axa through an online broker (yescarinsurance avoid like the plague), and doubled for me and Jill, so I went directly to axa and got exactly the same cover for half the price which makes me think yescarinsurance were taking a massive skim for themselves.
