Maybe have a look here for some recommended companies https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/repub...insurance.html

In general insurance has gone up this year, I'm paying about 20% more this year than last year & that's after shopping around. My original renewal quote was 30+% more than last year

Do you cover NI too? I don't want breakdown cover etc, I only need basic tpft to keep me legal
Bye the way, if you do bikes I might have three policies to take out

That's not so bad. I'm expecting to pay £1300 which is quite a bit less that the £2400 I payed for last years cover
