  1. I hope you find a way of sorting this. I have noticed that I am no longer covered for mainland Europe on the car insurance and my provider has divided Europe into 3 for the (increasing) additional cost depending where you want to go. Basically, France/belgium/holland being the entry zone 1, and then further afield increases the cost.
  2. Thanks for confirming. Mine was included but not sure of duration. I was sent a schedule of changes for the renewal and basically, the cover offered has gone down.
  3. It depends on how much people pay attention to their renewals then after our “no-change” exit from Europe. Unless there are some tarif changes for insurance, charging for driving in Europe is pure profiteering on the part of the insurance companies.
  4. Hi Terry, is that a recent change? I looked at last years documents and it has changed though not clear from what!
  5. Not my clearest post... sorry about that! I was highlighting that driving in Europe is now chargeable for comprehensive insurance on my policy. A territory section has been added to the schedule of changes and it doesn’t include mainland Europe.
  6. With all that has happened in the past few months, I recently took a week off and drove down to Amboise in middle France. We took the Tiguan as it hasn't really been used in the past few months and I wanted to put a few miles on it. I realised when getting the paperwork together that as well as my Insurance renewal being due soon, Volkswagen don't give 3 years breakdown cover but we were back before the 12 months ran-out so that was fine. Just renewing the insurance and there is a schedule of changes including UK only cover for the main comprehensive cover. European driving/usage (not bre
  7. I have one of these and live in Bromley if anyone local wants to have a look or try it out.
  8. Good work Matt. My 996 had the ignition switch changed before I bought it and now has an intermittent power feed supply to the steering angle sensor. I am wondering if it is linked to having this lot out!
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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)
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. Thanks for confirming. I get AA breakdown with my bank account so it’s just euro cover that I don’t have.
