I'm with admiral and every year my renewal comes in at pretty much what I paid last year - do a new quote online (which is normally quite a bit cheaper) and then ring up to get them to match it.

They're all the same, just get some other quotes and ring them and the price will come down :)

I believe most renewal quotes are a try on. You can get a better quote from the same company by applying on-line. Best to shop around all others. Insurance costs are pretty hefty these days.

I had the same problem recently.

I’m 26 with 5 NCB, and I went from £450 FC last year and a renewal of £750 this year. First I shopped around and the best I found was £430 FC, but I was still unimpressed with this as it was only £20 cheaper, but that was the best price I could find with the extra covers that I wanted.

When I called my insurance company to see if they could match that price they couldn’t so I had to leave.

I even spoke to the guys at Sky ( the LOC’s sponsors), who have always been really good at competing with prices said that all insurance premiums have raised, and couldn’t match my quote.

Depending on what other things Adrian Flux covers, that quote seems pretty good to me !

try elephant i pay £260 with ncb protected

Are you 25 ?

Try Direct line, my partner has a BMW 316i at the moment and pays £40 per month with 1 years no claims, I pay £60 per month for my IS200 for the 2 of us on the policy, me with 2 years no claims.

That doesn’t seem to be a very good price at all.

That is almost as expensive as PhillP’s renewal quote, which he didn’t want to pay.

Plus Direct Line are a very bad insurance company. If you ever have to use them, they will give you more hassle than what the issue is worth. I’ve heard so many stories of how much problems people have had with them, including myself.

It was the best price I could get, partner was 24 when I took the policy out with 1years NC and I was 23 with 2years NC, never had any problems with DL, lost my job few months ago and thus couldnt make a payment, they were very accomodating and put payment on hold for the month and then let me pay it a month later. I know loads of people with them who seem to find them ok. I was with Churchill and then Hastings who were ***** to say the least!!

All other companies I got quotes from were in the region of £900-£1200. I had an accident 3 years ago which doesnt help, plus when I got quotes companies wouldnt insure my partner on the policy for some strange reason.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
