    You don't pay for just the damage on your car but also the damage done to other drivers/people/bus stops etc. Because statisticly you will crash into anyone of the things named atleast once in the first year of driving (according to the insurance peoples).

    Expensive quotes are really a polite way of telling you to feck off. What would you prefer out of interest, a screen full of feck offs or a screen full of expensive quotes?

    its probably best to keep away from them for good really this companies like comparethemarket.com (simples) and confused.com etc...

    i went on a few for my bike - CPI sx 50 but with KTM parts on it...

    cheapest quote on one of these brokers - £1456.99 per year and £500 excess

    cheapest quote (now insuring me) from highway - £313.98 per year and £350 excess...


    always best to go to the insurance companies and ask them yourself really...

    insurance is a bit strange, a 18 it costs me less to insure my imported Mr2 turbo than it does my VTi 98 civic?

    A screen full of feck offs,

    Because I'd rather have it straight than be stroked by insurance people !!

    I think the phrase would be "Dont piss down my back and tell me its raining" :D :D :D

    In fairness though, "Ollie" was excellent who used to deal with me at A-Plan, so I am sure Ollie at Sky also does a good job !! lol
