I've been pulling my hair out aswell,

29 6 years no claims, no accidents & my insurance has gone up from £416 last year to £500 this year I tried everywhere, money supermarket, compare the market, go compare, greenlight & thats the cheapest I could find!

Its an absolute pain in the backside, but the best thing to do is sit down with a brew & go through all the comparison sites & check some others out like aviva & direct line & hope for the best!

I've found insurance has crept up on everything this year.

Best thing to do is try the compare websites but try all of them. I found compare the Market to give the cheapest quotes with the company being axa. Go compare was over ?400 dearer on their cheapest quote.

I'm 30 with 10 years NCD and no points and it's ?800 on a mk4 1.8T 20v.

I just got a quote for 570 mods included on greenlight who advertise on here, i've just turned 25 and have 4 years ncb. I tried go compare etc and get £1400

Next on my list of people to try, chris knott (on here) sky (on here) and finally my current Adrian Flux who we endeavor to beat all the quotes i got like last year. I saved 800 from what they originally wanted at 1540 I got it for 730. Always worth it.

good luck, it also depends on your post code, if its in a high insurance claim area your premium will be higher.

First quote was just the same as my car is now and they wanted £1000<o:p></o:p>

Second was with all the mod`s ie, lowered, wider/bigger alloys, suspension, ARB and even wanted to know if the windows were tinted for heavens sake!. They wanted £2500<o:p></o:p>

I'm 36 yrs 6y nc 1 accident in 2006 not my fault and 3 points,(not for speeding) <o:p></o:p>

I found Sky to be I just left your insurance company as I was with them via a brooker who wanted me to pay £650 for insurance this year.........I was like on your bike I aint no 18 year old no more I have earnt the right to cheap car insurance now lol

the reason its gone up is due to Tax, yep those fools in No 10 think that making us pay high tax not only on fuel, but on something that you have to have by law is the only way that the country will have money in the pot at the end of the year [brick]
