  1. I recon around £420. Here is my working £35 x 12=£420!
  2. Saga, £162.74 Comprehensive with a £150 excess. My wife and myself as drivers. Mind you, I'm nearly 70, do a maximum of 2000 miles a year in it, because once I'm in, I find great difficulty in getting out again.
  3. Lets put it down to the late hour and your obvious emotional state at the football result.
  4. I think the reason is age Ken. Apparently when we get past 70, our claims record is approaching that of young inexperienced drivers. A lot of companies are now not quoting for us mature drivers.
  5. The test of insurance is at claim time.
  6. And sorry to say this JonsT, but they will all probably have been withdrawn in a few years time!
  7. Also free prescriptions, eye tests, fuel allowance, Christmas bonus, free bus pass, reduced rail travel with a railcard. However, the disadvantages are many, difficulty in climbing the stairs, failing eyesight, memory etc. etc. Youth is wasted on the young.
  8. You only have to bite the bullet for another year. When you are 50 you can go with Saga as a lot of us 50+'s do.
  9. Fortunately the dilemma has resolved itself in the car being sold!
  10. Confirm Saga insure both my cars, and when I phoned today to get a quote for a banger for fishing, said they could mirror my ncd. On reflection however, I think 3 cars (plus my wife's) is a car too far!
  11. That's exactly what you have to do. Make some phone calls!
