Need new insurance for March 18th, so over the last week i have been trawling the so called "compare" websites.
Using tesco compare and confused.com, i have received many inconsistent results, the same companies at different times giving different prices and offers, in the same week. surely prices dont alter daily, do they?
To set the scene, im 23.5 years old, been driving for 5 years, 8000 miles a year, no points, 4 years no cliams, prevous accident i dont have to mention anymore due to being more than 3 years ago. driving a 1996 GTV 2.0TS, which i believe is a group 16.
Firstly insurance groups, maybe when the car was new and worth a fortune it was a group 16, its only really a "quick" car, a friend of mine has a Type R Civic and his lower insurance group car definatly is much quicker and i imagine more expensive to repair. as mine would be a right off if involved in an accident due to not being worth much more than £2000 at a guess.
Anyway, i got aload of quotes and i found that by visiting companies websites instead of the compareones i received much smaller quotes. My own insurance company, norwich union, who i have been with for two years offered me a renewal for £750. Marks and Spencers offered pretty close to £2000.
anyway now paid my deposit to virgin, who dont penalise for paying monthly with no interest charges, £420.
But why is it so difficult??
