    £328 + £250 excess = full comp, legal cover, replacement car, green flag, windscreen cover, no claims bonus & uninsured driver protection. SD&P + Business use.

    Just re-insured a motorcycle. Last year, £250, this year they wanted £650. Haven't made a claim in over 15 years. Full NCB, etc.

    Moved elsewhere (Aviva) and managed to get it down to £270 all-in.

    As you say, it's a lottery, so shop around.

    If you need a hand, let me know. I help my friends and family with insurance as Im quite adept with it.

    My very first insurance cost me just over £600 when most other new drivers couldnt get quotes below £1K. Every year I save at least a couple of hundred off the lowest quote on comparison engines by spending a day calling around a few specialist firms.


    If you like I can help you here, but you might not want to post all your details in public. First off:

    - How did you get those quotes? Is that just generated through a comparison engine?
    - Who is your lowest quote off? Are you looking at comp or TPFT?
    - Is your car modded in any way?
    - Have you called your insurer and asked them to beat the lowest quote? Who is your current insurer? Have you called the bottom three quotes and played them off against each other?
    - What is your age? What are your circumstances? Im guessing you have an sp30 or a claim in the past five years regardless of fault? Have you called specialist brokers?
    - Do you have a families house nearby to get a quick quote on? Quotes can vary wildly based upon location. For example, prices a mile away from my house are half of what they are here.
    - What occupation are you putting down? Be aware that although computer consultant and computer engineer is pretty much the same thing, except one is far cheaper.


    I can pretty much guarantee your premium is derived from the amount of accidents with your make/model of car versus your driver profile. That is why premiums jump around. If more 5 series bmw's have accidents one year and more drivers your profile do, then your 5-series will cost you a lot more.

    Where you really start to question the sanity is when:
    - You get charged more for not being born in england but still being born british and being in the uk since a toddler.
    - They get the model of your car wrong and yours is the one with factory fitted immobiliser, which bumps up your premium.
    - Where they mix up your fault/non fault claims and you find out it is hundreds of pounds cheaper to have fault claims instead of non fault.
    - Or when it is better to have less NCB rather than more.

    New windscreen - does that count as a claim?

    With most insurers, no and you keep your NCB, but you have to pay an excess sometimes.

    Most brokers dont ask about glass claims, but IMHO it is pointless making a glass claim. You can get similar kits to autoglass very cheap on ebay and you local scrapper can supply you with replacement glass cheaper than your £50/£60 excess.

    That's how the insurance companies make their profits, enticing new customers with good deals the first year then sneakily bumping up the premiums in subsequent years, relying on people being to lazy and apathetic to switch (and automatically renewing on your behalf unless you stop them first )

    But it sounds like your insurance co forgot the "sneaky" part and overdid the price hike

    Each company has a different risk profile, one day you might be in it, next you might not. There is the introductory discounts to entice you of course but they shouldn't be that much, they don't do loss leaders.
