Insurance renewal time


internets

Recommended Posts

I know this is a well trodden path but my renewal has come in for my Cup 250 and is nearly £670 which is more than my Evora 400 last year and over £100 more than I used to pay for my old V6 Exige so was wondering what people pay and if the Elise costs more to insure in general than the Evora/Exige? 
 

kind of assumed / hoped with a smaller, cheaper and less powerful car the insurance might go down a little, but maybe the Elise is a higher risk ;)
 

I am with Clasicline and to be fair they have always been good to deal with and In my limited claims experience had no issues but wondering who else I should consider? 
Never been impressed with my contact over the years (not just on price but in general) with AIB, plus they no longer offer track days so assume CCI, Henderson Taylor and Chris Knott? 
Anyone else worth getting a quote from as a comparison before going back to classicline?

Chris, motor insurance rates are going up across the board for a number of reasons including Brexit (I know I know), Personal injury costs, latest regulator view on fait play between new and existing customers, lower investment returns etc etc etc.

Obviously worth checking around though

Thanks Barrie, Indeed that old chestnut ;) but I was assuming it would go down even slightly as a smaller car / less power but I guess not. As always no time and renewal fast approaching lol

Well as a follow up for anyone interested, if anyone but guess not, I phoned around and was quoted anywhere from £770 up to £1,677! 

A big up to Matthew @ Henderson Taylor (0161 437 7442) who sent me quote within minutes of sending the online quote request form! They include 5 UK and EU track days, agreed value £500xs and came out at £772 so all in all not bad so would recommended them.

Tried Chris Knott but was more, they did offer to try with a specialist underwriter but they cant offer track days so decided no point

CCI have vanished, the web link didn't work for me , and think they have been absorbed into Footman James. Their quote was £1,667 with 6k miles and 3 (i think) track days. They did offer to try their classic specialist insurance but I would have to join club lotus and my car was too new unsurprisingly. 

So anyway went back to Classic Line feeling I had the best deal but upon questioning them and the increase they run it thought their quoting system again and it came back with just under £550!!!
