Re: cheap car insurance
the only thing with car insurance is something that we all have to have when on the road, but its not how cheap it is, but what actual cover do we have if we have to claim, its okay paying a cheap premium to get on the road, but always look at the small print to see just what the covered is?:)

Re: cheap car insurance
if you ring up for a quote tell them that you are having trouble with their website so that they will still give you the internet discount if they do it

also get the quote and then tell them about the pass pluss course hes done, just my opinion but i think if you tell them at the begining when doing a voice call they just give you a figure which would probably be the same if you hadnt told them so telling them after makes them have to give you a different lower figure if you get what i mean

not sure if they work on commision or not but i bet they do so be sneaky because they sure will be if they work on commision

dont use tesco they are robbing sods

bell direct are cheap and do a 11 month policy which gives you a 1 year no claims faster , dunno how it works but it does , even if you switch companies after 11 months you get your 1 years no claims

Re: cheap car insurance
Yeah i know jaysay but at the minute the quotes hes got varies between 1850 for third party fire and theft and thats the cheapest to over 3000 still for 3rd party f &t. Fully comp starts at just over 2100.

Re: cheap car insurance
I seem to recall my nephews got a good deal for young drivers from the co-op. Whoever you try it won't be cheap at that age.

Re: cheap car insurance
Good grief I didn't realise it was so expensive for young drivers! Mimi is hoping to get a car when she passes her test when she's old enough but at that rate we'll need a second mortgage!

We were with norwich union until we had a crash! that wasnt our fault, and we got the worst customer service ever!

But thats not to say it will be te same for everyone though.:)

Re: cheap car insurance
I recommended to him norwich union direct - when i had the crash in mine i had no problems, i rang them on the monday and they picked the car up on the tuesday and returned it the following monday, it needed new bonnet, new wing and bumper and headlight. He rang them and got a quote for 2170 and he cant afford that. He rang round and got an insurance broker and they managed to find one for him for approx 1500. He isnt just using it for going to work he needs it for work part of his job is going round all the different places that who he works for owns so the pay as you drive wouldnt be worth it especially as he has to prove he is insured before he can use it for work.

Re: cheap car insurance
If they need him to travel he could ask them to supply a company car. With teh rise in tax/fuel etc cO cars are becoming a popular way of 'insuring' yourself against the riing costs of running a car
