    I've heard that a reason for charging more when parking the car on a driveway is that thief will know exactly where You live so can break in and steal Your keys and drive off.When You park on the street You can live anywhere.

    Noticed on my new Aviva policy the other day that they had put Foreign cover on it; I'm not going anywhere this year and hadn't asked for it. So I deleted it online, and it says it didn't make any differnce to my premium so thought I'll put that back on. When I did they wanted £24 extra for the year.....

    Now taken full advantage of the right to cancel within 14 days and have a nice, cheaper, policy through Swinton.

    How long have you owned the Vectra (if over a year this gives you a discount) Plus how many vectras get written off compared to corsas? How many vectras are involved in acidents compared to corsas? How many vectras are nicked compared to corsas. All factors that need to be taken in to accounts. Are there alot of young people round where you live driving corsas (and probably crashing them)? If so this will likely up your quote. etc etc

    I found Octagon less than half the price of all comparable quotes, windscreen cover, courtesy car, legal cover, overseas all included.

    EG Aviva quoted £2718 for Fully Comp (Ive been driving 25 years and never made a claim) yet Octagon quoted £425.......no brainer!

    How comes adding a second driver knocks down your insurance?

    I know recoomending insurance companies never seems to work, but anyway. My Vec is insured with Highway through green light for roughly half the nearest quote from else where. Im about to insure my second vehical with Highway but through sureterm for about a third of my next cheapest quote. Unfortunately you cant go direct to Highway.
