    Car insurance increase 8th Jan 18 at 3:09 PM
    Hi all,

    My Car Insurance is up from £400 to £465 this year i.e 16% or so - 15 year old car, late 50s driver, SDP, full NCD, low mileage, fully comp including legal and replacement car extension.

    Seem reasonable these days or could I be looking around?

    Standard MSE advice is never simply renew

    You should be looking round!

    Mine went down this year. I was expecting it to rise a bit but a nice surprise when it reduced.

    I use a car club broker who contacted me to say they were switching me this year as the previous insurer had increased the prices considerably.
    But i got quots of less than the renewal and they called me back to say they could match it.

    Get quotes on a newer car, its often cheaper.

    My contribution to MSE. Other contributions will only be used if they cost me nothing.

    Due to me being a tight git.
