Insurance turn off's

Postby Sebastian » Wed Feb 26, 2014 7:32 pm

Been driving the E Class faultlessly for the last 3 years and I was shopping a bit around to see if any large jap v6 might replace it .
Browsing I found this yoke ( the wheels are terrible I know) . 2.5 V6 215 bhp auto

cheapest quotation was 1850 TPFT
I mean WHAT ?I've payed less then half for the FTO .

Are people paying this much for a chaser or a fat camry ?

I am paying €512 with XS direct on the Chaser, 3 years NCB, 34 Years old.
But I heard the company are no longer acting as an insurance company and are merged with quoteme.ie as a broker so dont know if you will have any luck there.

You've a choice of excess that you'll pay: €1,000/€2,000/€3,000.

The less excess you choose, the higher the insurance cost. For one of my initial quotes directly with them it was €2,800 per year for €1,000 excess or €2,100 for €3,000.

In the end I managed to get a great quote via quoteme.ie of €1,580 for the FTO (Just as named driver, paying for the cost of someone else to be the policy holder too).

People should be careful and not be drawn into cheaper prices for the sake of it being cheaper. I like being insured, rather than just having a disc to drive on the road. If the excess on a policy is more than my bank allows me to take out of the atm, then i won't be insured.
