  1. Your circumstances have to be the main factor and only you know those. I used an 05 Boxster as my daily and work car for nearly 3 years but claimed per mile for work use and paid for business use on the insurance policy, claiming £0.45 per mile based on trust. I now have a similar mileage rate but get a small allowance and chose to lease a car instead as the current set up is a lot more formal, with usage and app based route tracking etc
  2. Have you checked out Churchill? I have found them very competitive and I think we have three cars with them now. They don’t worry about cars being on the drive, road or in the garage and include business use in the mileage.
  3. I think that Post Code is a big factor in this. With my TVR / 911 Swap, I am paying well over 50% more than the old/new owner for the same cars as he lives down in rural Sussex.
  4. Is that Locktons? They were the best of the rest but business use and must be garaged at night were a problem. The car is garaged but I am having some work done on the garage in the new year and on a previous classic policy, I had to put the car into storage elsewhere as they wouldn’t insure it on the drive/road. Churchill don’t care provided it’s at the post code (checked by phone)
  5. It could be time to look at multi car. Do they allow you to have two or more drivers so multiple cars in use at the same time?
  6. Saga were the 1st people I tried and they were similar in price to my classic polices. My neighbour has a Boxster and suggested them but they quoted higher for the 911.
  7. Thanks for confirming. I get AA breakdown with my bank account so it’s just euro cover that I don’t have.
  8. Having had a modified car for a few years that was difficult to insure when you live in South London, I have been very surprised at how competitive Churchill Insurance have been on a normal car insurance policy for a similar performance/value car. There are a couple of things that I don't get but having checked a few companies, for 5000 miles, they are between 40 and 60% cheaper for a normal policy with no NCB at the start compared with a classic policy. Also, I don't have to join PCGB or keep the car in the garage overnight and I have business use and build up additional NCB as well, so overall a really good deal. Does anyone else have similar experiences?
  9. Some insurance companies just don’t like where you live. RH Insurance went off Sarf London several years back and doubled my premium having been so flexible in the past. For a modified car, I spoke with several insurers who insured friends equally or more modified cars elsewhere in the country and the premiums were a lot higher or no bid in one case.
  10. Glad it worked out ok for you and also, that the new role is all that you want it to be.
  11. Have you driven one? My son has one and I like driving it to the point that I paid the extra from when he was 17 to not have the tracker fitted for the occasions I was was behind the wheel
  12. Agreed. Business use and European cover and that is about a third of that total. Very pleased.
  13. I renewed my Boxster insurance yesterday but it is my main car, doesn't live in a garage and I am in south London. Breakdown cover was the big difference. Lots of companies in Meerkat land wouldn't offer European cover due to age so renewed with the existing provider. Not sure what the annual is as I do everything monthly - £35
  14. They didn't offer it to me. I asked about it and was advised that you have to be a member of PCGB to benefit from the scheme and they include 1st year if you are not already a member.
  15. Well, Boxster Renewal time. Churchill were a bargain last year when I switched over from my Saab. Up from £294 to £380 this year for reasons unclear from their call centre. Locktons were ok. Simple to deal with and competitive when you consider the euro breakdown cover I also wanted to add and Porsche membership included. But, you don’t accumulate or retain NCB and I would be using two specialist car policies which I am sure would be a problem at some point as I am named driver on my wife’s car, not the policy holder Mr Meerkat sorted a great deal with GA and have all the cover I want, including Euro breakdown for £400 so very happy!
