You've probably seen the ad, they're offering 15 weeks free insurance provided you have 4 years NCB. Never been with Aviva before and have a feeling the 15 "free" weeks have been factored into the premium so no major savings. My policy doesn't come up for renewal until the end of May but if anyone wants to give Aviva a whirl let us know what they quote you.

There's a few other offers going around. Not sure if Confused is still offering 1000 Nectar points (which amounts to what? 10 quid?) but that's where I usually end up getting mine.

Any other good "deals" people have discovered, lately? Tell us about it here. I'm not sure if I can take with another major hike come May. So thinking ahead.

The whole insurance saga is a complete rip off, don't even get me started regarding quotes I have had recently for our forthcoming new car!:frust:cens

No, me either, but I got a quote from them after reading about them on .org, and my policy document refers to a 'modern MG' policy. They're quite linked in to the whole MG scene, the MGOC/MGCC (whichever it is) race days they have have a 'Peter Best Challenge Cup', for example.
They're a classic car (ie classic MG) specialist, but they do special rates for the modern cars.
Give em a call and get a quote of them, wont do any harm and you may be as astounded as I was.

My insurance is due end of the month so i gave pete best a try and they did come out cheaper than what im currently paying chris knotts. The thing that seems to push mine up is declare that i have refurbed the wheels matt black, have grooved and dimpled discs and a stainless steel exhaust as you cant get pattern parts once the orignal one's rotted. If i didnt declare these things reckon i get it down £150 but if i was ever in a bump i'd hate them to use these things as "not original spec" and invalidate my policy.

You have to shop around every year as the people who stay with a company end up paying over the odds so that the company can then offer huge savings to newbies then they hike it up the second year if your daft enough to stay.

Saga can do my Nissan Note Full Comp with Protected NCB for £149. My mate in work is with them and is paying £340 for a 1.6 Picasso

thanks, I'll try them. Although I've heard people on some forums saying how they're quoted one price on the phone and then once they've filled the forms out and send it in the premium doubles. Guess I'll have to find out for myself.

Not sure where I heard someone mention LANCASTER insurance but just a warning about some of their policy types. One year I was shopping around for my ford and they gave me a really good deal. However, at the end of the year when they inadvertantly bumped the premium I decided to change to another company. When I asked them for proof of my NCB, Lancaster said that my particular cover (which was fully comp) "did not accumulate NCB!! It was the oddest thing I'd ever heard but later I found this clause in the small print of the policy. I phoned around some other insurance companies and they hadn't come across such a thing either. I was really miffed having missed out on a one whole year's NCB. It was several years ago and I now have pretty much full NCB but just a head's up. Always read the small print.
