Can't believe the insurance quote I just got from compare the meerkat for my FE which I pick up next Saturday. Admittedly I have age and location on my side, but even so, would you believe £175.20? I've double checked everything and it's definitely fully comp and for the FE, and it's not even an obscure insurer - Churchill! I hesitated for around a nanosecond...

Feeeeeeeck!!! Churchill quoted me £572 I'm late 30s and had a minor of minor bumps in a 4x4 last March... Churchill was considerably cheaper than Jag (5k+) and all others on confused/meerkats etc etc that were coming in at 1k+

Good job all round really, not that I would have thought it, off hand, with Churchill.

Just for info as well, I took delivery weeks back the 1st if not one of the 1st deliveries and back then when the market was unaware of the FPACE prices were astronamical, I was even uninsurable by many companies based on the uncertainty of the vehicle and who the owners / audience would be on this vehicle... I confirmed such take by insurance companies, by a few in the know individuals, and it's nice to see its settle a lot... I may even requote )))

Did you complete the application in the name of Mr Smash by any chance? ;-)

Well observed on the excess, yet my current one from Churchill is standard £200 compulsory £0 voluntary, yet I had been quoted from Tesco £2k with a £2k compulsory excess!!!

Mine doesn't cover new for old, but I have a 3-year GAP policy which works out at around £170 per year - the extra premium for new for old for the first year alone would have been far more than £170, and I have peace of mind for the second and third years as well, whereas I've only been able to find new for old cover for cars up to 12 months old

Do these cheaper policies cover new for old. I made sure mine did as it saved buying separate GAP insurance, and the thought of being thousands out of pocket if it was written off / stolen.
I never considered that!! but I thought all state current 'market value' given age/mileage in the event of a total write off... which companies do new for old. .. out of interest ))

I googled 'new for old car insurance', and quite a few came up. There was also some useful background information, in that things may not be quite what they seem - see http://blog.gapinsurance.co.uk/index.php/2015/02/23/the-perils-of-new-for-old-cover/
