Grande Punto insurance costs

I thought it might be interesting to compare how much people are paying for insurance and who is giving the best deals.
I am 39 years old from south Wales, Drive a GP 1.9 Sporting.
Full no claims - protected
courtesy car and legal cover included
This year to stay with Elephant.co.uk they quoted 365.
Negotiated this down to 298 with excess of ony 160 per claim.

Tesco were doing it for that price but the cover was stripped down without the courtesy car, protection, legal cover and the excess was 450.

A quick call to Elephant and asked them to price match - very happy.

Re: Grande Punto insurance costs

20yr old north east england, 450 a yr Fully Comp with my father as the main driver (49 yrs old). Im not bothered about NCB at the moment to be honest i'd rather build them up when it doesn't cost me 1000+ a yr for insurance. That's with Liverpool Victoria. I might go on my own when I hit 21.

Ouch . I got a quote for 1050 on my own with 0ncb and fully comp, so it must be a high risk area where you live

Is that 3rd party or fully comp?

I'm 27, paying 318 fully comp with 6yrs NCD with a Torquay postcode. If you're fully comp then i'm getting on the phone!

Re: Grande Punto insurance costs

Comprehensive mate....it has to be when the car is valued above 5K. Luckily i'm a car insurance underwriter so i get to know all the rates for all the companies and privilege is bet at the moment out of all the major uk insurers!
Give em a bell....remember....you don't have to be posh to be privileged!

Re: Grande Punto insurance costs

I think privilege are extremely good at the minute....drivers aged over 27 should call direct line and anyone awaiting a renewal with Norwich Union will be shocked if there renewal falls after 1st of Oct as they are moving the business back to uk and putting premium prices back up as they think they have a big enough customer base to retain around 60% of customers which they calculate will be enough for them to hit target for the next year. Churchill also have a price beat guarantee at the minute and Tesaco have a clubcard offer on until the 10th of Oct.

Any body have any other insurnace probs just msg me and i'll see if i can help you out!

Regards
Phill

Turkey 
Re: Grande Punto insurance costs

In Turkey we pay 2 different insurance one of them traffic insurance and the other one is automobile insurence . The traffic insurence costs 100-150 ytl (50 ) this's compulsive. And optional automobile insurance costs 1000 ytl( 335 ) per a year fully comp. This's cost of the GP 1.4 77 hp dynamic+ sport pack+skydome, I'm 19 and licenced since 2005. You see ,we pay totally 400. This account is very high for turkey .
