Last year with Direct Line I paid £650 and it went up to £680 this year with £250 compulsory excess. Done a price comparison online and it came up with £410 with a £400 excess with Debenhams. Phoned up Direct Line and they immediately matched the comparison price without any problem and still have the guaranteed hire car, legal cover etc.

Mines coming up as £1000 with Churchill. My X5 4.0d was only £1250. Seems like high insurance for the Rx400h.. GS450h quote wasn’t much diff.

Mind you I’ve got a few claims over 5 years to shred yet.

I think ours was about £580 back in February. That's with business cover for both of us, courtesy car, max. NCB (protected) for both of us etc., etc.

The only thing I didn't take is legal cover as we have that through my union. Policy is with Ageas if I remember right, through A-Plan brokers.

That’s no bad considering my Aygo grp1 is costing me £500. Daylight robbery. Or paying for my kids sins.

Hi.

When you're due for renewal if you need any help with insurance at all then please feel free to drop me a line.

Regards,

Dan.

I’m buying it hopefully this week need insurance for Friday. Churchill have said that can pay £350 to March on my existing insurance for the Aygo which I paid 489 in March. Still works out £800-900 pro rata.

Interesting numbers. When I changed from a GSF to an RX450h earlier this year I was surprised to see my premium jump from about £300 to over £400. and that was the cheapest I could get after a bit of negotiation. How can an RX be higher rated than a 470hp 168mph super saloon? Mystery.

Renewed mine with Admiral on 1st April (this is not a joke btw).  It was £305 for the year.  Fully comp, me and Mrs LedZep, 9 years ncd, courtesy car etc. etc......  We're in rural west Wales, I'm sure it makes a difference.

That’s cheaper than my Grp 1 Aygo....

The problem is that there are SO many variables you just cannot make any meaningful comparisons.

I know that one of the things that puts our price up is the need for both my wife and I to have business cover. Hopefully that requirement should cease in about 12 to 18 months, but the cynic in me says that I still won't see any reduction in premiums!

One of the biggest factors is your Post Code.

A friend of mine, who lives near Manchester, carried out a test for insurance for his Honda Goldwing.

Got a quote from his insurance company using his own address, then also got a quote using my address.

Everything apart from the address was kept the same and the quote using my address was half that using his own near Manchester.

The insurance on my GS450H is £260 fully comp with all the extras, and only £50 excess. I live in Herefordshire, and am insured with Saga. My premium renewal went up this year by 60 pence, and Saga have informed me that as long as nothing changes risk wise my premium will remain at the same price next year. Makes a big change from the usual enormous price rises normally associated with renewal.
In the past Saga have quoted higher premiums than other well known companies, but for some reason 18 months ago when my renewal was due they were the cheapest quote on comparison sites by some margin.

John.

There was no increase in my insurance premium when I changed from a 2011 IS250 SE-L to a 2017 GSF. It made no sense to me and even the Direct Line sales representative was surprised,  but of course I’m not complaining 😜.

Both of our cars are also insured for business miles for my wife and myself. Again it made no difference with Direct Line. 🤷🏾‍♂️

Direct Line seem to be cheap for insuring GS F, I ended up with a cheaper premium compared to my IS300h. Possibly they haven't had a claim against one so haven't put it in a higher risk category? It did come conditionally with a very high excess though.

Yes I think you are right. 

I found the same with the excess also.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
