"Existing UK policyholders will not be affected by this decision as existing policies will remain valid. Customers can make claims in the normal way," the regulator said

They're the only ones who will include DOC for me for free.

I'll find out come May if I have to change or not.

Re: Quinn Insurance

Guess you wont be able to, or will have to insure it with another company. You might be lucky though.

I cant afford to change insurers and im only half way through my policy so hopefully this will blow over

Re: Quinn Insurance

This is just risk reduction, the govt. has forced them in to admin so they can investigate the books properly and they don't feel it appropriate to leave the tax payer here (under the insurance guarantee scheme) open to "foreign" risks. They're still taking new business in Ireland.

I would expect Sean Quinn to either provide the funding to be allowed take the group out of admin or it to be sold to someone else very quickly; they'll re-open the books for the UK then. They're VERY popular in NI so they won't want to lose that.

Re: Quinn Insurance

This is from the administrators statement found on Quinn website, dated from 31 March.
Quote Quote:
"With effect from 30 March 2010 the company has ceased to write new business and to make renewals of policies in the United Kingdom (including Northern Ireland). Accordingly when your policy expires the company will not be in a position to renew it"

Re: Quinn Insurance

MUCH later than expected, Quinn can now write new motor business for anyone (took provisional licences back last week) across the UK. This includes renewing policies if MEP hasn't done his yet!
Thanks Most Easterly Pandas thanked for this post
