Hi Gordon

How did you get on? Happy to chat via pm if that's better.

I'm interested as I've been approached, by our companies insurance broker, about having one of these extra value insurance arrangements where they look after all your insurances and you have a named person to deal with all matters concerning the insurance.

Hi john,I spoke to Clare who was very helpful and gave her all my details and named drivers etc - I have since been contacted by A-Plan Private Clients department who have recommended a policy from Aviva Private Clients.  The cover in the policy is excellent but it is more expensive (to me anyway) than other 'normal' policies I have had quoted.  I'm weighing it all up at the moment and have another quote due so nothing decided yet.

I seem to recall that Loctons and AiB will quote for any multiple of 1000 limited miles in a year.

Just having a look at this thread again myself, I ended up with the 'Porsche' branded scheme now being managed by Carbon, again it is an AVIVA underwritten policy and as far as I can tell not much difference than the standard AVIVA policy, apart from the branding, I need to read through it again to check the Windscreen cover.

Gordon, did the AVIVA private clients policy have any particular enhancement on the policy cover such as the windscreen cover etc, would be interested to know.

Hi John

Yes, the Aviva Private Clients quote (through A Plan) is pretty comprehensive - legal, breakdown, enhanced courtesy car, choice of repairer, unlimited screen cover.  Excess on my quote was £1000, screen excess £100.  They also insist on the tracker being activated at all times.  The problem I have it's just too expensive (well over £1k) compared to 'normal' policies elsewhere - but it is very good cover and worth asking for a quote as even though I live in a low risk area I want five named drivers which may be hiking the price up.  

NFU is the best overall quote so far, they are happy with six drivers, the cover is as good as any normal policy (and no mention of the tracker being required), they are happy to use all OEM parts but I might have to use a repairer that's not Porsche approved, but they will allow me to choose if I insist (I think I lose the courtesy car) - when I think about this the Porsche approved repairers are so thin on the ground I expect a good repairer would be fine if all OEM parts were used.  NFU win lots of awards and seem to have excellent reviews from customers who have had claims.

So at the moment I'm still considering things as I have plenty of time, but it looks as if NFU is favourite.  If I was wealthy and not bothered about the cost and wanted the best cover then A Plan or a similar quote I have from AIB would give complete peace of mind.

Thank Gordon, my premium is high enough already to be honest, even with max NBC etc.

I might give them a go but if tracker is manditory (unless was only due to your value) that would be a stumbling block as would have to be third party  / retrofit one and don't really what to go with that.

I am happy'ish with the policy I have, it just seems since it transferred from Marsh it has been diluted somewhat in the cover with little or no difference in the cost. But it is more the cover as costs where pretty much same for all quotes I got.

I may have to reduce the mileage expectation as that restricted some policies. Will deffo have a look at a nfu and a few of the specialists mentioned by others again.

To bring the matter of which insurance to choose to a close - until next year at least, I have gone with NFU, very happy with the cover and price - plus they have a local office so I can deal face to face if I want.  The all - singing high net worth/private client policies offer excellent cover but at a cost which I can't justify, as even though I've scraped enough money together for a new 991.2 I don't consider myself to be in that category of customer.

Lmao I wish I was older. My 2.7 986 only cost me £5k but the insurance for it was literally half the value of the car £2.5k... I am 19, 20 soon.

This is with an £800 compulsory excess

added excess

I'm with Aviva, better than anyone else I can find, but it's important to phone and speak to them.  They are able to vary/tailor a number of standard clauses/costs to fit your requirements or circumstances, particularly if you accept a larger excess. My excess is £1250.

I'm currently with Aviva/Marsh for both cars ( 991 and Macan) and had received a letter saying I was staying with Marsh. However I have just received a letter saying previous letter wrong and being transferred to Carbon Insurance Brokers as my business came via Porsche within the last 6 years. Think this will be the spur I need to sort out more quotes!
