    Does anyone own a CAT registered vehicle?
    Did it have an 'impact' excuse the pun on your insurance premiums at all?

    I've owned a few C and D. Never been asked by an insurer if a car is categorised, so I have never told them. I've never been told by an insurer they've noticed, and none have ever refused to cover.

    The Peugeot I have now was Cat D. If all repairs have been done to a good standard they can be a good buy.
    My insurance weren't interested.

    I've never mentioned it to the insurance company, they have never asked and they have the database. Cat C will be on your V5c, Cat D you might never know about.

  • You're right, of course. How silly of me. After all, all my work is solely focused on my own personal circumstance?

  • RT @ARJMOR: @MartinSLewis It may well be kind of random, but the algorithm used has a bias to the unpopular seats.

  • It seems what Ryanair is saying is "don't pay and we leave you the seats we don't think people want and they're in the middle."
