For the first time since I bought my 156 GTA new four years ago, I was today refused insurance because the car does not have a Tracker fitted. Has anybody else been required to fit a Tracker for their car ?

Always been surprised at how cheap mine is, I am with admiral and never been asked about trackers and the like.

Exactly the same for me - I nearly fell over when they quoted me. I thought she was having a laugh and made her go through all the quote again :D

Liverpool and Victoria. It is a pity that they demanded that a Tracker be fitted to my 156 GTA since they presently insure my Aston Martin DB9 Volante quite cheaply.
Is the aston without a tracker?

Mind you, they are quite a crap firm - I had to hang on the phone for nearly 40 minutes yesterday before anybody answered (luckily it was a Freephone number )

Every time I get the certificate through I check it says GTA and not 1.6TS. Guess I am just getting old :lol:

No, it is absolutely obligatory that the Aston has a Tracker which is police monitored. I am also required to have securty lights and an alarmed garage, but then, other than the GTA 156, the Aston is the cheapest car in the garage.

Well I had two total losses in one year and More Than quoted me £2,200 odd for fully comp on my old selespeed :eek: :eek:
I contacted Admiral and got a quote on their multi-car thing (insuring my other halfs Seat Ibiza too) and they quoted me £460 on the GTA :wow: My missus is only paying £250 fully comp on her motor too!
I nearly bit the arm off them - doubt they have ever met someone so keen to take out an insurance policy with them before :lol:

With all these expensive cars knocking about I'm surprised you're worrying about non freephone numbers?;)

Try Adrian Flux - very good price, no tracker required even with all my mods declared.

My brothers ex 147 had an inactive tracker fitted to it, must have been when it was new, so it does happen I guess.

Never been asked for a tracker but have been with the admiral group since I got the car. The price is too good to be true tbh and the quote for next year is even more unbelievable

I just got a quote from admiral.

I have full no claims, 156 2.0 JTS Selespeed and they want £672

Kwik fit offered for £327

Andi
They seem to be more competitive on cars higher up the insurance table, don't know why!
