Can anyone recommend somewhere I can get cheap insurance for a second car. Will possibly be getting a classic panda soon and have had quotes between 4 and 500 pound :eek:

It'll only be used as a secondry car, with limited mileage.

Suggestions welcome

Thanks (y)

you dont say what your present insurance is or what you put down as the quote.
eg have you approached your own insurer? how much no claims do you have?
have you thought about using the likes of day insure if its occasional use?

Admiral do multi-car policies...Also, ask your current insurer. Noel Dazely would do me a very good price on a cheap shed as a second car - worth asking :)

Diamond (subsidiary of Admiral) weren't bad for me for multicar insurance. But they were beaten into the back of beyond by Adrian Flux, who very kindly gave me my NCB on both cars, despite having accrued it on only one.

I was gonna ask this question 2,

i have to stay with aflux just now and there second car policy wasnt very good, the cheapest i found was elephant, at £450 (for a 1.1 stnd 96 cinq both me n ross insured) it would have to be a single policy as opposed to a multicar as we both have to stay with the pseciaslist insurers for the time being, i tried some of the comparason sites n the best they found was £1200 :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

i think we're gonna have to go with heffalump as they "allow" 5 mods, n we have stuck some wheels on the run around, unless anyone can reccomend anything better??

sorry for the highjack but it is related!

Try Adrian Flux or HIC. I insure 3 cars with HIC 2 in my name and one in my Wifes. It costs me less than £500 a year for all of them fully comp (but i am an old git)

Two are modified (one highly) and both are on limited millage. They can apply your current NCB to your second car too where most companies wont

you can also get a discount if you have contributed to the Forum

you can only use your no claims on 1 car( most places), but the secound car will earn you another set of no claims that you can use next year. try and up the excess to like £500

yes normally this is the case dave but for second cars specialists insurers can apply the same level of discount (eg 60%) to the second car as well as your main car, you then earn NCB as normal on the second car but continue to get the full NCB discount level of your main car at renewal time.
