It still amazes me that an entirely 'no fault claim' 3 years ago can still almost double my premium!
How is that fair???
"Sorry sir, that's how car insurance works" is the usual reply although, I was also told earlier this year that I'm now "statistically more likely to make further claims in the near future" because of the claim 3 years ago! Oh yeah, that being the first claim in nearly 30 years of driving!
I even think that the 'price comparison sites' are somewhat misleading... especially after finding out Admiral, Elephant and Bell are all the same company.
So much for choice!
Car insurance... legalised embezzlement and a necessary evil as far as I'm concerned!
I paid £500 with Adrian Flux last January so will be looking around soon enough. That was FC, 9 or 10 NCD, protected, doing 12k/year I think. There are so many variables to consider which is why prices never seem to stack up... Not saying I agree prices, especially when after an extra year of no accidents the insurance can go up (because some other drivers are numpties).
Not sure what I'll get as my renewal quote but I'll be shopping around just in case - with no job I can't afford to be paying any more than that but I don't want to get rid yet either!
Oh and as regards other's driving into you making you statistically more likely to make a claim, didn't you know you have a sign on your car now that says "target practice"? My last 2 cars were written off by people driving in to me Fortunately there's only 1 No fault back in September '09.

After obtaining a quote from my current provider, I thought I would give AF a try (based on comments on here and the discount on offer?).
Now keeping in mind I have NEVER paid any more than around £285.00 fully comp with over 14yrs no claims, no convictions, no claims etc etc etc...
