They're the same on GTIs, they won't quote you till your 25.

So I rang up on me 25th birthday last month

The only two companies I have any sort of respect for are Britton and Hibernian.

I walked into Axa the other day and the criteria was 30 on a Golf GTI - Group 7 insurance she said to me. I said so a 5 years NCB and a full licence 5 years means nothing to you?? 30!!!!!!!!!!!

Same with Quinn, "won't quote on that car".

My thoughts exactly, the one good thing about getting older, well besides looking forward to the day they stop asking me for id in pubs and offsales

Were you not a named driver untill recently Mark?


The points probably don't help either

rang them back about cancelling and they said they would quote me but i have to have proof that i was buying the car ie deposit. Thats a bit unhelpfull, dont want to lose a deposit if it turns out insurance is to expensive.

Whats yer opinion on a quote of €1,470 comp for a 03 golf 130bhp highline, 23yrs old and 4yrs ncb. Got this from Hibernian

I paid Quinn 1500ish last year as a 24yr old, with 4yrs ncb on my PD130. Was getting cheaper quotes elsewhere but needed the 'drive other cars' piece so was willing to pay a little extra.

Try FBD - they only list 'TDI', and werent too pushed about the different models. I paid 900 quid this year with Allianz, think it was through quoteline.ie, I'm 25 with 5yrs NCB.

im currently with Quinn im with them 5 year and have 6years NCD they said when i was insuring the corrado
that because i was with them for 5 years that the qoute would not be any more than what i paid the year
before

Interesting, I'm with them 5 years too, wonder if that would explain why they are charging me so little.

yea i know i couldnt believe it either, before i was going to buy the raddo i rang quinn for an idea on how
much i might be paying, to see if the insurance would be worth it or would i end up paying a few grand, like some other companys qouted me,
she told me that no matter what the car because i had been with them over 5 years that my policy would not increase plus im over 25, i then asked her what if i was driving a 95 corsa and then bought a new merc or BMW would my policy increase she laughed and said thet wouldnt but the chances of that happening are slim to non..

I was until 2004. But Hibernian let you carry your experience as a named driver on one of their policies onto a policy in your own name once you take out the new insurance with them so as of Feb 06 I have 5 years NCB.

And it's great because when I bought my GTI when I was 21 and all I could get was named driver cover, all my mates said ah you're mad, you should buy a cheap car, pay mad money for your own policy and at least get a NCB and now I have more years than all of them - win win.

Ah right, didn't know that would work that way, nicely done

So when I get my Veyron I can ring quinn up and my insurance will not go up from the few hundred odd it is now?

I'd like to see that
