hi
i am just in the process of buying a 147 jtd lusso and wondered if any of you know of any good companies to try for insurance.

my i can use my mother as named driver and use her no claims of 4 years
with one accident.

the best quote i have a so far is around the 1300 mark.

also does anyone know. I was on my mothers poilcy and it was me who had the accident 2 years ago when we renewed they marked the claim down for both of us because it was her policy that we claimed thorough but i was the driver. i guess this this right?

cheers

joe

I paid £1200 to go third party on my Pug 306 when I passed and I was 19.

That was a 1.8 too. And I live in London

Im also 19, the best quote i got was from direct line Ive got a 147 in my name with one years ncb and its £1400, they also do monthly payments at 0.0%. In the long run i feel its better to take out the policy in your own name if possible that way you can build up your own ncb.

But then if you crash again your mum again loses her NCB right?

Maybe you should insure it in your own name and build up your own? I'm only 21 now, and my parents wouldn't let me do it in their name (this is 2 years ago), I had to work more hours to afford the insurance but I'm glad I did now. I have 2 years NCB and my insurance this year was a very good price.

i paid about 1400 for my 147 when i was 20, that was with 2 years NCD but 3 points and a total loss accident, 2 litre model. have you tried noel dazely and adrian flux? they were by far the best for me (and a lot of people on here)

Paid £ 960 (fully comp) for a Vauxhall Nova (1.2) when I was 21. This was after an accident, but was 14 years ago. Then paid £ 1350 for a mini cooper (a year later).

true but no one plans to crash again.

my parents seem quite happy to let me use there ncb so i might aswell do so untill i have a well paid job and can afford to insure my car comfortably.

got my quote down to £1100 with the RAC now ill give noel dazely and adrian flux a ring tomorrow

thanks for the help guys

RAC were fantastic when I first went with them, but then they put the price up for my following year for no reaso whatsoever. So yeah, go with RAC then jump to Admiral next year, thats what I did and got great results.

no one intends to crash, but it happens!

I'd be with pud on this, best to get your own insurance cover and not rely on your parents and their NCB's. False economy in the end, as sooner than later you'll need to start and it'll cost a bit even if you have a years experience.

Personally if you can't afford to insure the car, then can you afford to buy it? Its bad news I know and not ideal, but build up the bonus then go for the car.

Its true, plus being the main driver of a car while its insured on someone else's policy is fronting, which is insurance fraud and illegal. Should you crash and the insurance company look into it, they may decide not to pay out, leaving you well and truly in the sh*t. You get done for driving without insurance and then are open to legal action for compensation from someone you might crash into.

It really would be best just to get your own insurance, even if it means getting it on credit or getting a cheap bank loan to pay for it, and work a bit more to pay it off. Once you start building up NCB the added premiums for your accident start to reduce.

I was in exactly your position when I was 19, two years ago. My parents wouldn't let me use their NCB and I had to pay £1250 for my policy instead of £500 for a policy in my mum's name with me as a named driver. But I'm glad she stood firm, I have two years NCB now and at 21 on an insurance group 14 car I'm paying only £450 for the year, you can't ask for better than that.

I was very lucky, first year getting a car at 19, searching around to insure my 1.4 d P reg Corsa, i had done pass plus and most places where quoting me around 2-3k! Went to direct line, and they would accept my no claims from my 125 motorbike! 2 years noclaims got me insured for £450! im now 22 with 5 years NCB, looking at 700 fully comp for my y reg 156 2L (which i think is a little high, but atm i cant move insurance as most places dont like the fact that my NCB is greater than my licence lengh ;) so ill have a bit more sway in a year, but hey hey, its all good ;)

I agree.

As an aside, I can't believe how much you younger guys are being asked to pay for insurance! Must be a nightmare.
