Just got off the phone from Adrian Flux, renewal time in a week, have scoured the interweb and telephone to find a decent quote to no avail.

The quotes range from £400 to £800. I'm 40 (so old) and drive a 1.9 diesel saloon car! So why the stupid prices?!

Anyway, Flux gave me a quote for £371, with a total excess of £200. So I'm happy with that.

Worth a call if your renewal is up. Worked for me. :)

The whole car insurance business is literally mental. If you don't fit a companies preferred criteria you are stuffed.
I am still stunned at some of the quotes I was getting elsewhere, DirectLine was over £500, LandV were over £600. Madness.

I have phoned Flux before (they still had my details on file) and the quote wasn't great, but this time I must fit the criteria!

The nice chap on the phone said that if I had a sensible car, like a Focus, I would be looking at prices like yours.

But I still don't get it, I work in education, so a safe profession, live in a "nice" postcode, am old, have a lower capacity diesel. So why the daft money?!

Oh well, its paid and on its way. Shame every third car that passes me isn't insured......

Never had to do this before, but as well as sending proof of my no claims discount I have had to send copies of my paper and card driving license.

I hope that SP50 from 7 years ago doesn't come back and bite me on the rear! They only asked for the past 5 years, but it is still on my license.

Adrian Flux were the most competitive for me this year, they matched another quote for me aswell as matching the excess so with all mods declared and limited mileage 399 with 10 payments of 39.9 i am happy with that. i be much happier if it goes down for next year though :) and im only 27
